|Filters for weddings??
It's worthwhile photographing in the shade, if possible on a sunny day. The contrast between the Bride's dress and the Groom's suit for example will be too great to be attractive. A good idea would be to shoot in RAW or better still, RAW + Large JPEG. Although, the former can be laborious with conversions, they can hold more highlight and shadow info - so if shooting on a sunny day is the only option, you can recover nice detail - even combine 2 RAW images say, a low contrast and high contrast to make your final image. As far as filters are concerned, a polariser on your 2nd body/lens kit (if used) will help to reduce glare and this helps with spectacle wearers and window glare. On a sunny day, don't worry about the 2-stop light loss, just crank up your ISO slightly if shooting digital. Hope this helps.
