    Have you not shot a wedding before then? Are you the official photographer? I hope it's not No and Yes. Will you have an assistant?
    As for equipment, what is the location/venue like, how many guests? That will affect people's recommendations. That said, everyone works differently and has their favourite equipment.

    What have you got already?
    Be familiar with how it all works and have back-ups too.

    A standard range zoom will do for most shots, a telezoom for candids. They don't have to be wide aperture lenses - sounds like you'll be ok for light in turkey in August, but if you're indoors then a fast lens will be very useful. Flash for fill-in or even use reflectors. Best not to saddle yourself with too much.

    As for insurance, I use Glover & Howe. There are others which I'm sure will be suggested, as ever contact them and get quotes.

    I shot one in Cyprus....

    Main thing I needed was a towel to wipe my sweaty brow

    Other than that, just take photos how you'd normally do so

    I may of worded that sentence incorrectly, yep done lots of weddings and I'm the main photographer no assistant.
    I was mainly wondering if anyone used anything to protect there equipment from the heat more then anything.
