60D can handle low light depending on the lens. The faster the Lens, the more light will be allow in the camera and you can use lower ISO. There are also option for Dim able LED on camera mount that you can use for fill lights and also those can be the main light cause it’s bright depends on which one you buy. Why would you shoot in SD anymore? I guess to each it’s own but you can always shoot in HD and convert it back to SD. If you use 16g SDHC card and shoot in SD, you should get at least 2 hours. I get about an hour on 16g full 1080p. If you don’t care much about HD, at least shoot it in 720p and you should shoot about 2 hours. There’s a limit for continuous shooting though, I think 15 minutes then it stop and you can hit record again.
You should use a wide angle lens, 28mm or less since 60D is a crop camera by 1.6. So let’s say your lens is 20mm, time that by 1.6 it’ll be 32mm. You should get one of the prime lens that has aperture f/2.0 or lower. Or you can get a Tamron lens which is reasonable price that is zoom 17-50mm f/2.8 If you shoot dark hall all day then find one at 1.8 or 1.4. The 1.4 and 1.2 is super pricey unless you get the 50mm 1.4 but then 50mm you will feel cramped and can’t shoot wedding with.
I’m curious that you do wedding but you don’t shoot in HD, people still want SD now and days? I know some people will want the vintage look but most people and days prefer HD.
