All about underwater wedding
An underwater wedding is just that: a wedding ceremony that takes place underwater.
This intriguing concept is perfect for couples who want something unique and memorable. Whether you’re a snorkeler, diver, surfer, a lover of the ocean, or simply want an adventure, this is a great option to consider.
You will both usually have to wear masks and scuba units. Having said that, a few scuba diving lessons would be necessary for those couples who aren’t divers, so that they can be comfortable underwater.
We also provide you with underwater helmets to wear instead, which require no training. Your wedding ceremony will be preceded by a safety briefing. Then it’s time to do your mask or helmet and dive on down.
Some ceremonies have the couples standing up, especially if they are walking on the sandy floor in a sheltered environment. Most couples, however, find it easiest to kneel whilst underwater. After the underwater wedding ceremony, you will ascend to enjoy a festive reception with your guests. After putting on a dry set of clothes of course!
