|Placement in front of altar|
Worst case scenario places the clergy in the aisle with his or her back to the audience, and the bride and groom in front of them.
No one can see any of the ceremony, and it is very difficult to shoot. The best layout places the officiate in back of the bride and groom, with the couple facing one another.
If the couple face the officiate, with their backs to the audience, it is again very hard to see what is going on, and there are few good pictures.
