Considering lockdown I think you might not have bought any cam yet.
So let me try to answer it even if it is late.

Wedding will have low light and multi range shooting requirement. Hence you will need good
zoom range 18mm(for group photos) to 300mm (for closeups).
Also a good TTL speedlight will always be needed in indoor shoots.

A more versatile lens like 18-200 which cost about 40k leaving only
20k for body but on such budget you might have to stick to 18-140 kind of lens.

Nikon D5600 Digital Camera 18-140mm VR Kit :49K
Add a reasonable TTL speed light : 8k
making total of about 57k.

Within 60 thousand you can only get New APSC or used full frame camera, I am recommending
you go with brand new setup for better reliability.


Best accessory of camera is 3" behind it,
And mine needs an upgrade. . . ;)

Yagnesh's recommendation looks good to me.  I will add these thoughts:

Make a list of your shots, the ones you would hate to have missed.  Have an equipment checklist too. Make your equipment setup work before you head out to the wedding.  That assures that everything you need will be at hand.  Take extra batteries and storage media.  Study shots which appear in other peoples' wedding shoots that you like.  Think about the composition and the light. Get familiar with your equipment before the wedding.  You don't want to be fumbling around trying to understand the gear.  You want to think about the images.  Back up everything after the shoot.

Treat your customers fairly.  If the work is good, they will send you business, and your wedding shooting will thrive.

Best of luck with it.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.
