Lots of wedding photogs use F4 lenses just fine. They do however know how to use flash.

And the look may not be 'ambient light' - but is that bad? Today that's trendy...partly because so many can't use flash competently.

On camera flash can work very well too- if you know how to use it. But then that goes for a prime lens too. Using it at F5.6 is kinda dumb IMO.

yes, today we shoot at ISO12800 and 1.4 lenses. But weddings were shot 20 years ago on film, in the same PJ style as today, with 800 or 1600 as the highest ISO and the pics were great.
