After 30 years of being together, Rob Collingbourne and Ann Bodkin are officially civil partners.
The ceremony at Southwark Register Office was one of the first mixed-sex civil partnerships to be held in London.
The new status for mixed-sex couples allows them to formalise their relationship without getting married.
Introduced for same-sex couples in 2005, civil partnerships offer almost identical rights as marriage, including property, inheritance and tax entitlements.
