You have a wealth of very good advice here. I would make two recomendations; Do not offer your services, even for free, until you have the skill and confidence to do the job. Offer to do some 'informal' shots, then shadow the professional. Watch how he manages the groups. Watch what equipment he uses and how he uses it. If there's anything you don't understand, wait for a quiet moment and ask the Pro., most of them will be very helpful as long as you don't get in the way of him doing his job.
The last time I did a wedding was 40 years ago and a fixed focus standard lens Rollei with a Braun EF3 flash and a good tripod was all the gear we needed. I think you'll find your kit lens is adequate for the task and an off-camera flash is absolutely essential. Get the most powerful flash you can afford and a pocket full of rechargeable batteries. Nissin make a pretty good unit for a very reasonable price.
