You might be right, but how would you set up the flash(es) for this sort of situation? I wasn't allowed very close to the couple and mostly used an 85mm or 135mm - the flash would have needed to be on-camera (or on an arm) and carry quite a distance, which would be been even more intrusive (especially when I was shooting towards the guests). I may have gained some more fill light to even out some of the shadow, but I just don't think it's as important as people think. With a 1.2 lens and mark3, there is never an issue with lack of light. But I'm keen to hear how others would have shot it with flashes, because I'm always open to ideas and suggestions!

yeah, don't take it as a criticism of your work at all, like I said those are great. it was more a criticism of your statement inpost 17I guess.

yeah, that's true if you are shooting longer distances and focal lengths, there is only so much you can do. but I'm always surprised with how much light I can get to bounce out of a 580 in a church like that, just to lift the shadows a bit at least. But then again, with wood ceilings, that would have been pretty tough (or impossible) in that particular venue. so practically speaking I would have gone the same route as you in that instance.
