Last updated: November 16, 2017 at 4:25 am
Hiroyuki Yoshida (Japan) and Sandra Smith (USA) exchanged vows at a depth of 130 m (426 ft) in a cave at Song Hong Lake, Trang, Thailand on September 30, 2013. It took the couple and accompanying divers 8 minutes to reach the alter. They momentarily stopped breathing from their rebreathers so the groom could kiss the bride. Their support team consisted of Ben Reymenants, Pekka Hartikainen, Charles Hosner, Moto Orita, and Arndt Schmidt.
