Casting my mind back 40 years or so (since I last did a wedding), I always considered it common courtesy to ask the vicar/registrar what I could and couldn't photograph. As a general rule in Church I could take one flash picture (normally of the rings going on), but as many as I liked without flash, as long as I didn't get in the way. In a Registry Office, they were more laid back and allowed flash for the veil lifting, the rings, the kiss and a general shot of couple + registrar during proceedings. None would allow photographs of the actual signing, but happy to facilitate a 'mock' signing afterwards. This pause while the signing was happening was usually a welcome break to allow me to reload film etc.
If you just pitch up and mill around they won't know who you are and might get a bit protective. In short, make yourself known to whoever is officiating, they will understand that you have a job to do and will normally accommodate any reasonable requests.
PS. This goes for any function.
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
