The Battersea Barge has a great location on the Thames next to THE power station built of 26 million bricks. It is a long time since I photographed a wedding but as a special for John and Paula being Jodie's parents and who's wedding I photographed in 1977 I agreed to do it, so with some trepidation I turn up with a D300 an F6 loaded with HP5 and an F3 sporting an 8mm fisheye. Inside the boat the ceremony was excellent with no mention of the god word. Once the register had been signed we were whisked off to Battersea park where it immediately began raining cats and dogs, but with the black and white cameras some moody shots were obtained. The party was great with lots of drinking and dancing and a great time was had by all!
