I would shoot it in the PM, the 135 lens with a yellow filter, if the sun is strong I would use Ilford PanF rated at iso 25, developed in ILFOTEC DD-X for finast grain (reflector or fill flash depend on how you want shadows, so wont say anything).
135 - well, I dont want to scare people when i shoot portraits so dont want to place the camera to close
yellow filter - This filter fix skin blemishes when shooting in daylight, which results in soft skin tones. It will also darken the sky a bit, which makes the people to stand out a bit more, and if you have clouds it will make them standing out more (and if anyone is blond it will also intensify their hair...)
PanF+ - Very very small grains, I have enlarged 120 film to 20x24 and still cant see any grains (shoot with a regular hasselblad 80 lens)
ILFOTEC DD-X - With PanF this developer is really excellent, no grains. For me it slows down the film a bit (not a full stop) but you also want the skin tones around Zone 6, therefore I rate the film at iso 25
If its not enough light for PanF i would go with either FP4+ or HP5+ they are great film and give very small grains with DD-X
(Edit: remember to compensate for the yellow filter when measuring the light)
