Portable flash mounted soft box or shoot through umbrellas will soften the light very well. I always use one of these Photoflex On-Camera XTC II Softbox - Large XT-OCLRG II B&H Photo on my AF360FGZ which is mounted on one of these Stroboframe Quick Flip 350 Bracket 310-635 B&H Photo Video
Off camera will give you a lot more options.

P.S. If you edit the flash listed above and substitute an AF280T, I've been using this set up for almost thirty years.
Great advise, this the sort of stuff I'm after

Thinking 28-75 , 31 for the group and maybe a Sanyung 85mm, would cover a variety of angles and all useable on the film body Already have the FA31 and will be getting the 28-75 and a new flash for friends wedding so all good!

Could I use the onboard flash on my MZ5 to trigger an off camera flash? (Metz 44-58)

The Vivitar Series 1 28-90mm F2.8-3.5 works for me. Had it since 1982.

Those little packs of crystals that come with old lenses... you're not supposed to smoke them. ;-)

Well...... maybe, but they sure taste good spread on French Fries.
