I took a 24-105 F4 on mine and honestly it was fine at the time....now however my 24-70 2.8 II almost never comes off the body, so if you splashed out on one it will serve you fine.

Honestly I think you will find you are almost never really needing much more reach while on your honeymoon and so I could see if you could either beg/borrow/steal a 70-300 4-5.6 from someone for the few shots, or a 2x teleconverter and save the weight as I have taken my 70-200 on a number of holidays thinking "I am sure I will need it" and found I almost never did.

Besides, this is not a photo holiday is it, wife will require some of your attention too!
