Kovalam to Witness A Unique ‘Underwater Wedding’ For The 1st Time In India!

Kovalam is becoming the most happening place for adventure sports and underwater tourism, thanks to its natural beauty and the richness of underwater marine life.

Who needs a chapel when you can have wet ‘n’ wild nuptials under the sea? For the first time in India Kovalam is going to witness a unique underwater wedding ceremony at the Grove Beach in Kovalam.

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.

The underwater wedding is being organised by Bond Safari, a firm that provides diving experience and underwater tourism in Kovalam. Though underwater weddings are not common but this will probably be the first time a wedding is taking place in a rough sea, says Jackson Peter, who is organising the event. Bond Safari has made all arrangement for the wedding.  According to the company, this is a first of its kind in the country.

To pull off an underwater wedding, you will need a strong sense of adventure, a tropical location with good visibility something only Kovalam can offer.

Unica and Nikhil wanted their wedding to be something unique and out of this world. The couple approached Bond Safari. The couple will have to wear divers suit above wedding dress. The ceremony will take place at a specially designed spot under water which is surrounded by coral reefs and shells.

Ornamental fishes that can only be seen in Kovalam will witness the wedding ceremony. The couple will also hold a grand wedding party on the shore just after the marriage. Since the couples won’t be able to speak their vows, many prefer waterproof slates on which they can write “I Do”.
