discreet wedding camera

I would like some advice or suggestions for a camera to use at a wedding.

I normally use my K5 which is quiet enough and my noisy Kr but I have a wedding to shoot with a Vicar who is very anti cameras especial during the ceremony,

The couple have asked me to take what I can and it occurred to me that if I have a camera which can be set up on a tripod near the vicar and couple and operated by wireless remote [not infrared.] this might work but:-

It must be silent when operated or very nearly so , [I have a k5 which is very quiet] but I want a electronic rather than a mirror shutter and have it must good low light capability as flash will not be allowed
so tripod mount, remote socket,wide aperture, zoom unimportant, very wide angle unimportant, very very quite operation.
any suggestions please?

The Olympus E-P3 has a 12.3Mp Live MOS Sensor and the TruePic VI Image Processor which work together to produce stunningly detailed images at fast speeds. In addition, the camera also has Olympus' FAST AF Tracking System. FAST AF provides 35 focus points along with Tracking AF for fast and accurate focusing on each shot. Other performance considerations include the 12,800 ISO capabilities, an AF Illuminator, and a built-in flash, not to mention blazing shutter speeds with a response time of less than 60 milliseconds.

The M. Zuiko Digital ED 45 mm f/1.8 Lens from Olympus has been designed for use with Olympus PEN Micro 4/3 cameras. With an equivalent focal length in 35 mm format of 90 mm, this short telephoto lens is ideal for portraits and for low-light shooting. Its extremely wide f/1.8 maximum aperture can produce a beautiful shallow depth of field effect and is very effective in low-light situations.

Vello's FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon and Olympus Kit from B&H Photo allows you to trip your camera's shutter without disturbing the camera--ideal for wildlife photography, or when you don't want to risk unwanted vibrations, creating a less-than-sharp image caused by touching the shutter release button (for very long exposures or macro photography, for instance). This kit includes a Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon W/10-Pin Connection and a Vello Shutter Release Cable for Olympus Cameras. A 2-second delay mode is ideal for self-portraits. 16,000,000 possible radio channels ensure that you'll always have a clear signal (there are no dip switches to set--the device configures at the push of a button).
