An underwater wedding ceremony took place for the first time in Alonissos, Greece on Monday, August 29.

Petros and Myrto exchanged vows of eternal love and loyalty in a truly unique and original environment: underwater, on the seabed off the island of Alonissos.

The first underwater wedding took place on the island of Sporades on Monday, August 29, at the initiative of the municipality.

The ceremony was attended by the couple and the mayor of Alonissos, Petros Vafinis, bridesmaids, diving instructors and an underwater cameraman. The festive heart-shaped decoration could not be missing.

The bride wore a white dress, while the groom was only half-dressed in formal attire. The others wore their diving suits.

After taking their vows, Petros and Myrto removed their masks for their first kiss as newlyweds.

An underwater camera operator filmed the entire ceremony, which was broadcast live on a large screen set up on the beach for wedding guests.

Petros from Edessa, northern Greece, and Myrto from Komotini, in the country’s northeast, as well as the bridesmaids took diving lessons for four days on the island before the ceremony, state broadcaster ERT reported.

Mayor Vafinis long ago obtained a diving license to perform weddings under the turquoise waters of the island.

Present at the underwater ceremony were the two bridesmaids, the president of the Tourism Commission Maia Agallou who also took over the organization of the wedding, as well as three volunteer diving instructors from the Triton Dive Center.

“The feelings that flood you underwater during the wedding are indescribable. In the ideal conditions of tranquility that the underwater environment offers, time stops and this moment belongs exclusively to the couple,” said the mayor after the ceremony.

On Valentine’s Day last February, the municipality of Alonissos put out a call for couples to organize underwater weddings.

“Our aim is to ‘open’ a new market for Greece and the island. Alonissos is developing into an international diving destination that this year has been chosen by hundreds of divers from all over the world. In general, the island registered a very high degree of occupancy throughout the summer season which reached 100% for the month of August, while the tourist traffic will continue until the first ten days of October”, emphasized the mayor Vafiniș, write keeptalkinggreece.com.
