Wedding photographer getting back into film

The Pentax K1000 was my first SLR (eons ago) and I have fond memories of it. I now mainly use the Canon Mark 5DIII for most of my work and the Ricoh GR II for street photography. I've been wanting to get back into film and have decided to return to Pentax and am planning on getting a 645N or NII soon. Have so many questions that I hope to find the answers to here. Glad this forum exists.

I think the 645n is a great camera, but one thing it isn't is quiet. It's not the shutter, it's the film advance. Have a listen to one before you buy one with wedding photography in mind.
