A Tamil Nadu couple decided to get married underwater to spread awareness about ocean pollution.
In a memorable wedding, software engineers, V Chinnadurai and S Swetha tied the knot 60 feet underwater off the coast of Neelankarai at the crack of dawn on Monday, sources reported.
After finishing the initial rituals on the shore, the couple, clad in sari and dhothi, took the boat to a spot 4.5 km off the coast along Neelankarai, to dive and complete the thaali ceremony and exchange garlands.
Though the groom was a licensed scuba diver, it was his wife’s first time in the ocean. When the groom’s family suggested an underwater wedding, she was initially hesitated and afraid. To prepare for the adventurous wedding, Swetha, the bride, began her course in scuba diving about a month ago .
