Underwater wedding ceremonies in Alonissos, organised by the Municipality at the bottom of the island, are impressive.
"We are enriching our invitation to visit Alonissos with initiatives that bring travellers closer to nature in important moments of their lives," said the Mayor of Alonissos, Petros Vafinis.
It is noted that the first underwater wedding took place last August, paving the way for a new service for which there is already a demand for planning new weddings on the exotic island of the Sporades this summer.

"In order to motivate young couples to exchange vows of eternal love on our seabed, we have agreed with diving centres on the island to provide free diving equipment as well as the necessary training courses to the newlyweds," he added
Underwater wedding is a sustainable unique experience with minimal costs.
"The response of the couples is encouraging and justifies our effort to create a new wedding market", said Vafinis.
