Underwater Wedding For Scuba Diving Couples

I found this dream like wedding ceremony for water loving, scuba diving couples. Very different, unforgettable and unique! A Buddhist ceremony in China but perfect for any water loving couple.
The article comes from:

`As a coastal tourist destination located in the most southern point of Hainan Island, Sanya has been embraced by everything: pleasant climate, fresh air, tender sunshine, crystal blue ocean, soft beach, fascinating ethnic folks, yummy sea foods and you name it.

Instead of flamboyant traditional suits, the new couples will be dressed in colorful diving suits. Assisted by the coach, the bride and groom will be riding the wave and diving into the wedding hall under water, with the stones as witness, the fish as guests, and the turtles as choir. What a lovely feeling! Another special is a fibered and water-proof marriage certificate which can be your lifelong testimony.

Tour Itinerary:Day 1: Arrive in Sanya. Arrive in Sanya and transfer to your hotel. Have a night tour around the city.

Day 2: Underwater Wedding Ceremony at Sanya. After the breakfast, the couple, together with their relatives, will take the flower-decorated cars to the famous Oriental Hawaii-Yalongwan Diving Club where the staff there will send flowers to the couple. With the wedding march, the new couple, under the guidance of coaches (also as the witness), will then dive into the underwater hall (stay there for 30 minutes).

The couple hand in hand will dive through the underwater flower gate. They will sweap rings and kiss each other. The coach hosts the ceremony and issues the marriage certificate. As soon as the ceremony is done, the couple holds a bottle with love testimony in it and put it into the ocean. The bottle filled with love and wishes will drift all over the world.

During the whole trip a professional photographer will take pictures recording the memorable moments. Also a variety of entertainment activities will be organized after the ceremony is over. At noon, head back to Sanyawan where a collection of outdoor pictures will be taken.

Day 3: Western Island. Park on Lvhuitou Mountain top. After breakfast the bride and groom dressed in special suits take a one-day tour experiencing local life. Go to the island of Love Western Island where you can enjoy all kinds of activities. You may watch the mysterious underwater world in a touring ship or you can take pictures in the island. When the night falls, you can climb over to the beautiful Lihuitou mountain where you can hang the love lock over the love trees, listen to romantic love stories, enjoy the gorgeous scenery or have a soul-to-soul talk.

Day 4: Tianyahaijiao (the end of the earth). After breakfast pay a visit to a crystal exhibition hall. You can buy one piece as a gift for your friends. Then go to the temple where you can experience the Buddhism culture and pray for the best of your love. Take a cable ride to Nanshan Temple where you can overlook the ocean. At Bell Temple, you can hit the bell for your parents' love, for a happy family, for the world peace. In the afternoon visit Tianyahaijiao, the most famous scenic spot in Sanya and a must-go place for lovers.
