I'm new to the wedding photography scene and I've shot primarily during the summer. Nature makes it easy to provide backgrounds for the post-ceremony couple/group pictures. However, I'm covering my first winter wedding, which is going to force me indoors. I'm ok for incorporating props. That I have control over. What I don't have much flexibility over is my backgrounds. I don't have a studio or a backdrop support system. I'm a tad vexed as the only idea that comes to mind is using a plain white wall with, perhaps, white material over top of the floor. Is cucoloris appropriate for some couple shots? I've seen David Hobby turn a dull, conference room wall into a cool, vibrant background using water glasses and a wireless strobe with blue gels. I'm nowhere near that creative and I'm getting a little stressed about it. I haven't been exposed to the full possibilities that wedding photography possesses. Are there certain, traditional indoor spots that I'm just not thinking of? The church they are using isn't all that special, so there goes the romantic old cathedral shots. Are there certain public buildings you guys have found that provide the backgrounds able to harmonize with a couple newly wed?

i suppose it's my own fault for being so vague about my circumstance. I took the plunge and today and ordered $1400 in studio equipment from wireless triggers to stands to muslin backdrops and a support system. I should have the light and the backgrounds I need to take formal group shots at weddings. I just hope 24 feet is wide enough to accommodate the largest of wedding parties.
