It wasn’t so much the stars that decided the wedding date, but the changing tides. At dawn on Monday, when all was well with the ocean, V Chinnadurai and S Swetha were married 60 feet underwater off the coast of Neelankarai in Tamil Nadu, reports Kamini Mathai.
“It was a traditional marriage ceremony, only underwater. We dove at an auspicious time and swap garlands and tie the thaali before 7:30 am as instructed by our priest, ”said Chinnadurai, licensed diver and software engineer.
