    16-35 f/2.8L, 24-70f2.8L, 70-200 f/2.8L (IS). That trinity should get you about any shots you'd need for a wedding. You could also go with off brand equivalents or go for a prime lens selection. You basically want as large an aperture as you can get while maintaining wide angle through tele focal lengths.

    It shouldn't matter if you're familiar with the specific lenses. If you're shooting a wedding for money, you should know how to use various focal lengths and what effect a lens' max aperture has.

    Once you do, you will know what you need for the desired effects. There are multiple lenses you can have. It's just a focal range that should be covered. Then it will boil down to primes vs zooms. All in due time. You will see what is needed and what you will want or like. Good luck.

    I am not a pro and never shot a wedding before but in my opinion, lens purchase should based on what end result you like have (such as your style) and the condition where photograph is being taken. I think the most important gears you need to get right now is knowledge and experience. And the other gears such as lenses and lights etc will come along in the near future.

    I really do not think there are a best lenses for weddings, but there are best lenses for a wedding photographers. And I am sure they are different from photographer to photographer.

    The 17-40 f/4L is an other alternative to the 16-35 f/2.8 for much less. You'll lose a little light on the aperture, but you'll save a good bit. It really depends on your budget.

    Now, the zooms are great versatile lenses, but you'll probably also want some primes in your bag. When you're shooting in a dark church an 85 f/1.2 @ 1600 ISO will probably be a better option than an 70-200 @85mm and f/2.8 with an ISO of 9,600. That's if you can shoot your scene with such a shallow DOF. Other than that primes will generally provide better optics. Of course, your zoom becomes your feet and you may need more lenses to cover the range between 15 and 200mm.

    If you see a photo you really like, beside the artistic side, you may want to learn the technical side of it such as the ExIF info (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, focal length and recording medium), lighting (artificial light(s). natural light, light modifier being used including reflector(s) )
