for those types of scenes, I resort to using a chinese lantern with video light on boom pole held by an assistant for a main light and an on camera light heavily diffused for a fill light and I start with an exposure that is set to not blow out the highlights from the candles etc…. but that is for my hdr hc1, not a low light performance camera… this allows me to keep my hdr sr12 rolling for the wide shots. now I also add in some available light footage off my d-slrs as well….
