Bouncing light from a speedlite is about the only successful approach.
The newer cameras with high ISO performance make it that much easier.
Here are a couple;
First one, the bride wanted a picture with her and her dress before she put it on.
She spent a few minutes trying to think about what to have on for the shot, then told me, wait here, I'll call you when I'm ready.
When she called I went into the bedroom and there she was, in bed, looking up at her dress. I brought the mamosa and chocolete strawberries over to the bed and we had the shot.
Window light camera left, and as can be seen in the mirror, fill from bounced speedlite into wall behind me.
Second shot was done in the bride's parent's living room. Picture window behind her, speedlite bounced into the wall and ceiling camera right for fill.
I see you in the window!!!
