Caribbean 360 announced that a wedding campaign has been launched in the Bahamas to try to break the Guinness Book of World Records in undersea weddings. On a serious note, the organizer says that the event should bring international attention to ocean conservation.
In Deep Love Bahamas Limited, a Bahamian destination events management company, has scheduled the event to take place on February 14, 2017, Valentine’s Day, at the Grand Lucayan resort, in Grand Bahama. Organizers hope to break the standard in the Guinness Book of World Records for undersea weddings, which is currently 34, by having 50 couples participate.
Creator and organizer of the campaign, Alfred Collie Jr., said the event would not only foster destination weddings, scuba diving and ecotourism in The Bahamas, but showcase the waters and bring focus to their conservation.
“We are working to achieve a number of objectives by bringing couples from around the world to marry in the turquoise, crystal clear waters of The Bahamas. We also hope to unite the Bahamian people and the world behind a novel concept that brings immense international attention to ocean conservation while at the same time creating the ultimate wedding photo ops and memories,” he said.
Director of Romance for the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Freda Malcolm, said the ministry was very excited about the In Deep Love wedding promotion and fully endorsed it. [. . .]
