What is your wedding gear setup?

I thought this might be an interesting question since there are so many products on the market right now and so many different ways to use them. If someone asked you "What did you use today to capture this event?" What would you say? In other words tell us about your gear. Here is my current line up that covers me on the wedding day.

2 Canon 7d's
Compact Flash Cards 32g x2, 16G x4
Lenses 50mm 1.8, 24mm2.8, 50-150 2.8, 18-135mm 3.5-5.6
1 Canon HFS 200
2 Yamaha Pocketraks (these have replaced my Irivers and wireless)
1 Iriver (getting rid of this soon)
1 Glidetrack (sawed off to10 inches)
1 Manfrotto 561B Pro Fluid Monopod
1 Merlin Steadicam
2 Manfrotto tripods with 128RC fluid heads
1 Sennheiser E604 for reception audio

Hi Ian

If you just scroll down a bit here you will find an almost identical thread where people have listed their gear setup so they might not want to repeat the process again!! To see what others are using it's maybe worth reading the other thread in conjunction with yours???
