Amazing footage of the first underwater civil wedding

In Alonissosthe first organized underwater civil wedding took place on Monday at the initiative of the Municipality.

Petros and Myrto exchanged vows of undying love and loyalty at the magical bottom of Alonissos.

The couple were married by the mayor of Alonissos, Petros Vafinis, who had obtained a diving license in order to perform weddings under the turquoise waters of the island.

At the bottom were the two bridesmaids, the president of the tourism commission Maria Agallou, who took over the organization of the wedding, as well as three diving instructors from the Triton Dive Center who volunteered, Proto Thema reported.

It should be noted that the whole ceremony was followed to the letter thanks to the use of special waterproof surfaces with all the procedures of the civil marriage, as well as the words of the newlyweds, who temporarily removed their masks after exchanging their vows for their first wedding embrace.

An underwater cameraman filmed the wedding, which was broadcast live on a large screen placed on the beach for guests, while it was also possible to watch via mobile phone.

“It is indescribable the feelings that flood you at the bottom during the wedding. In ideal conditions of peace offered by underwater nature, time stops and this moment belongs exclusively to the couple”, declared the mayor of Alonissos after the ceremony.

There was a previous call from the Municipality of Alonissos on Valentine’s Day for the organization of submarines weddingswhich immediately aroused the interest of couples.

“Our goal is to open a new market for Greece and the island,” said the mayor.

Alonissos is becoming an international diving destination and this year it has been chosen by hundreds of divers from all over the world.
