Being sent to swim with the fishes for your wedding may initially sound a bit sinister but that’s literally what this couple, Chris and Sharon Dow, did in the Little Cayman’s first ever underwater wedding. Until this couple tied the knot, all previous underwater ceremonies had been vow renewals with the actual service taking place on dry land.
The underwater venue had an aisle made of conch shells leading to a 213 year old anchor which served as an altar, and the couple was attended to by a team of six divers to orchestrate the ceremony. The arrangement was set up by diver operator Steve Broadbelt from Ocean Frontiers who was underwater with the couple during the ceremony whilst the minister was on the boat and communicating with them via radio communications equipment. The wedding was jointly arranged by Snooba Travel and Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.
