If the venue does not permit flash then why bother shooting? The photos will more than likely come out bad if you're using nothing but church ambient. Good lighting is key. If the walls are dark or colored that's easy to fix, just change the WB in PP. Dark walls can still be bounced off as long as they're glossy.
Why bother shooting? Because you are being paid to shoot thats why. Brides don't pay us to make excuses.
Heres a couple of shots I did in a church where my iso was 3200, aperture f/2 and my shutter speed was 1/80. No flash was allowed. And this wasn't the darkest church I've shot in.
Yes, good lighting is key, however out of the 80 plus weddings I have shot, I have yet to use flash in a church. Many churches won't allow it, plus it's considered rude to use flash during the ceremony, at least in the US.
Bouncing your light off of colored walls will, as you know, give you a color cast that you may not be able to eliminate, especially if you are mixing in some ambient light.
