is this enough of a basic setup for wedding photography?

U'll need a spare body and spare lenses...24-70 F2.8 Sigma is a good one for such purpose, if not, a 20mm prime makes a good back up too.

I do carry my 70-200 for wedding shoots, but I found myself hardly a chance to use it, other than outdoor weddings.

Hope these helps. Good luck!

for me, i used to carry these for my wedding shootout:-

1) Two F90X with MB10.
2) Metz flash, 45CL-4.
3) SB28 for spare.
4) Nikon 28mm-105mm macro lens.
5) Sigma 28mm-105 for spare.
6) Battery pack for Metz flash.
7) Nikon 70mm-300mm just in case.
8) Agfa Vista 200 and 400 film.

Agfa film gives a very nice red colour tones. Normally
like it very much for wedding shots.
;)
