I tried several methods through the year to record good sound of vows at wedding ceremony. The problem for using shotgun mic is, say like you are recording a speech. Okay, sound is good. Then you want to do some B-roll such as panning to the audience. All of a sudden, the sound becomes muffle.
I also tried wireless lavalier. A lot of times the wireless frequency interfere with the wireless equipment used in the location. I ended up recording lots of statics and no good clean audio to use. There is also rance issue with the wireless reception.
For recording speech in wedding ceremony, I recommend using a voice recorder.
Olympus Voice Recorder.
With a small wired clip micrphone clipped to the speaker or groom. Then have the speaker put the voice recorder to the front pocket.

Pros: You get clear audio. also a second audio track to be used on top of the audio recorded with your cacmcorder for ambience sound.
Cons: You can't monitor audio live. Also have to synchronize the additonal audio track with the video recorded with the camcorder.
From experience, I keep the camcorder recording continously so I only have to synchornize once per video clip. I know people concern not being able to monitor live audio like using the wireless setup. However, if you notice something wrong during a wedding ceremony, even if you can monitor the audio, what can you do to fix it? Take a look at this clip. What can you do if this happen live?

Sometimes it's fun to hear people sound in the restroom, cursing, talk lalalala of other people.. because they forgot the voice recorder has been on.
