I have a Church Wedding coming up where no flash is allowed, and the Bride is black. I have gained access to the Church
under the correct lighting (same as Wedding) to take a couple of quick test shots (attached).
This was with a Nikon D7000 and a 24 to 70mm 2.8 lens. Both shots are at 2000 ISO. My question is really will this work for a
black bride or could I/should I ramp up the ISO further - any thoughts would be appreciated?

Changing the ISO is not gong to help increase the dynamic range, and all the dark object in your sample shots show plenty of detail so I don't see that you have a problem.
Shoot at iso 3200 at f5.6 and over expose slightly (+0.3) to avoud losing facial detail. You'll be shooting raw which should make life easier too, I assume...
Thanks for the advice. I will attend their rehearsal and test the above suggestions. Much appreciated.
Remember Nikons hold highlight detail well, so you can afford to give more exposure than you've shown here...
