Destination weddings are common now a days, but this couple decided to take it to a whole new (sea) level. The adventurous bride and groom have chosen to exchange vows down the sea, surrounded by thousands of marine animals.
India's first underwater wedding will take place in Kovalam on Thursday. Unica Pogran, a native of Slovenia, and Nikhil Powar, from Maharashtra, will have their dream wedding in an underwater ceremony under the Arabian Sea at Grove beach.
Though underwater weddings have taken place earlier, most of them were held in large aquariums or places where water remains calm. This is for the first time that a marriage ceremony is taking place in a rough sea, said Jackson Peter, who is organising the event.
His venture Safari Scuba Diving has made all arrangement for the wedding, which according to the company is a first in the country.
Nikhil and Unica wanted their wedding to be unique and approached Safari Scuba. The couple will have to wear divers suit above wedding dress. The venue will be unique with all natural decorations of coral reefs and pearl oysters. Exotic fishes that are found only in Kovalam-Vizhinjam part of the Arabian sea will witness the wedding.
The couple will also hold a grand wedding party on the shore just after the marriage.
