At a recent wedding where I was acting as the official photographer I was the only person permitted by the registrar to take photographs during the ceremony, and even then I was encouraged to avoid flash as much as possible. Wedding guests were told firmly that they must not use cameras until the ceremony had finished. This seems to be fairly common practice.
After the ceremony the bride and groom then posed some shots, including a pretence of signing the register again, and the registrar was then happy for a whole barrage of cameras and camera phones to be used.
This was purely the registrar's ruling - nothing to do with me, although I was glad not to have random flashes going off while trying to capture important shots.
Edit: I should mention that this was not a church wedding but did take place in a historic building.
