Flash Questions ? (SB800)

Got a SB800 - happy with it

I took some photos at a function at the weekend, I like bounced flash (white ceiling)

D300 SB800

I found I had to use 400ISO and was nearly always at 1/60 f2.8 or f4

Maybe it was just the room we were in, ceiling height etc. but how do for example wedding photographers take pictures with some DOF i.e. a small group of people etc. ?

Do they use straight on flash, multi flash guns................ ?

Just curious really for any hints, tips, to improve flashgun use

In a few of my photos one person was sharp whereas someone a little further forward or back was not ?
