I am hoping to shoot my own wedding with it!
Sit yourself down in a chair. Now...grab the bottom of the chair and lift yourself and the chair up off the floor. Being the photographer at your own wedding will be about 5 times harder than that.
It will be OK - his wife is the second shooter
I heard of one wedding where the bride was an avid photographer, bats or bugs or something. She got a group photograph of everybody at her destination wedding, except herself and groom. That included the caterers in the kitchen, the valets parking the cars, the pool attendants, the professional photographers they hired to cover the wedding, everybody. Somebody got a picture of her getting the picture. She was on an 8-foot ladder and the groom was steadying the ladder, to make sure she didn't fall off and break something important. There were something like 350 people in the group photo.
As I recall, the wedding was budgeted at something like $4 million, including the charted 747 from New York to the destination, some seaside resort in Goa, I think.
