Default 10D lens set for wedding photography...good start?

I have just purchased a 10D for my girlfriend who is going to be shooting two weddings this august. She has shot with a digital camera before (Oly E-20N - not at weddings, though) but I chose the 10D because of the superior performance and ability to use a wider variety of lenses. Being that I am going to surprise her, I had to chose the lenses myself. So far I was thinking about the:

Super Wide Angle EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Autofocus Lens
Zoom Wide Angle-Telephoto EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Image Stabilizer USM Autofocus Lens

Would these lenses be adequate for wedding photography? She also does portraiture work. The rest of the setup I put together includes:

BG-ED3 Battery Grip
BP-511 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack
550EX Speedlite TTL Shoe Mount Flash
ProMax Softbox for Shoe Mount Flashes
Lexar 2 Gig 40x Compact Flash Card

Should I also get a bracket to position the flash off the camera? I did a good deal of research before putting the package together, but have no idea about which bracket or off-camera adapter to get. Would I also need to get her an external battery?

Thanks in advance.
