In all seriousness, there is a lot of information missing before anyone could answer this question.

Re: equipment for professional wedding photography

Do you want a list of all possible gear then? Each wedding is going to have different requirements based on location, available lighting. time of day of the wedding, At a minimum 2 cameras with fast lenses (f2.8 or better)

Re: equipment for professional wedding photography

A simple Google search will help you with your research on the subject.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=wedding+photographer+gear+list

Truth of the matter is that depending on where you are in your career and your "style" of photography your gear list may vary quite heavily. Some rely heavily on portable flash that being simple strobes or studio lights. Others find it more appealing to their style to utilize available light as much as possible.

Here's a site to get you started with further understanding the subject, which was obtained simply by using the wonders of a search engine (Google) as linked above.

Image Stabilized Telephoto zoom
Prime Lens
Flashes
Tripod for taking some special moment shoots
Bag and Card Holder
Shoulder Strap

This is just a basic list that I can come up with.I am sure there are many such important types of equipment that will help you.

*Cameras
When considering a camera in wedding photography, you need to measure up your needs and your means.

*Lenses
The shutter speed can then be changed to a faster speed to adapt. The ‘bread-and-butter’ lenses for a wedding photographer is the 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 (IS). With these two lenses, you can shoot a complete wedding, from reasonably wide to telephoto.A lot of photographers also use an ultra wide angle lens, such as the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8.

*Flashes
You can choose not to use flash or not, and the place the wedding is being held in may have their own rules on that. A diffuser or bouncer is also very helpful. Make sure you know how to bounce and manipulate flash, as bare flash is not always quite completely appealing.

*Memory cards
The most important thing is to get lots of memory; fast cards can help if you want to capture that moment (and not miss), using continuous shooting. Make sure you have enough memory to cover at least 600 shots: how many gigabytes will depend on whether you shoot RAW or not, and the megapixel count of your camera
