I agree the flash is in your face, the light modifier I have shown earlier does send light everywhere, some people I know swear by the Lightsphere by Gary Wong but again it sends light out everywhere as well.
Would a rogue flash bender been a better choice along with higher iso like 800 with speed around 1/60th around 5.6 and of course better composition for sure.http://www.bhphotovideo.com …r_Large_Positionable.html
I will need to go back here several times for more weddings as its where most bridal parties go but not only that most venues are in poor or low light.
A rogue flash bender is not necessarily the solution to creating a good photo. Your flash is still going to be on-camera, meaning that the light will be very flat. If you really want to produce some images that look better than snapshots, take your light off-camera.
You don't have to spend a ton of money do go with off camera lighting. You can get by with a cheap speedlight, trigger, umbrella and light stand for under $300.
Here's a stairway shot that I lit with two cheap speed lights. A small softbox was mounted to the key light. Bare light was used for the back light. I fired both with pocketwizards but you can get cheaper triggers.
Now, compare my image to yours and ask yourself, which one would you rather have if you were a paying client? Btw, this venue was extremely dark.
