How experienced as a photographer are you Paul? Have you covered any other social gatherings or events, because weddings are quite challenging to shoot. I can not stress just how important planning is with a wedding shoot. It's best to have a look round the venue in advance, compile a list of shots you need to take on the day, get a copy of the days itinerary, plan where and when you need to be for each shot after you've decided on locations for each. It's good to also have a look at some other galleries of wedding shoots for some inspiration for group poses, though there are a few very useful articles on this site that should help with that too!
Anyway, best of luck!
I would echo this plan by Ian, and pre plan the shoot to get the best posable shots. Althougt I disagree with Jinky's sujestion of the 70 - 200 and recomend an 18 - 200 for the candids. on the matter of off camera flash I would sujest a pocket wizzerd or sume other radio control system rather than a wire system for health and safety as one will have loads of guest milling around
