Use the 35mm cameras for your candid type photos. When one runs out of film use the other and have your wife take care of putting fiim in the one just used. I'd use the Rolleiflex mounted on a tripod for family groups. No need to have another as this can be a slower time allowing for change of film by you. Have your wife use the 35mm cameras during this time as some nice candids can be taken during this group photo time. Use the Rollie for the ceremony and the 35mm for post ceremony and reception photos. 4 PM is a nice time outdoors if the weather cooperates. Look for controlled light, more horizontal, not overhead, use as your main light and a small flash as fill. Have your wife make photos of the ladies getting ready, objects of significance like the rings, flowers, shoes, purses, bride putting on makeup, groom and groomsmen getting ready, napkins, table stuff like silverware, place settings, name tags, items that will prvide memories for the b&g. Concentrate. You will be telling a story with your photographs. Get involved with each & every situation. Pay little or no attention to technicals as they should be down before the wedding. Go to the rehearsal. Check each venue before the wedding.
Maybe hire a pro & you offer to help!
