Used a Speed Graphic and a Linhof in the 50s and no one heard a thing.
Great cameras for weddings and especially for the formals.

Graphic, using the Compur shutter in the lens rather than the focal
plane shutter. Put a 120 roll-film back on that sucker and it's
unbelievably silent. And then if you want to make a lot of noise to let
people know that you're really taking their picture, you can use the
focal-plane shutter with a Grafmatic back.
