A well-dressed couple from Spain exchanged wedding vows 10 meters below the waters of a cenote in Yucatán. 

Barcelona newlyweds Ina Sapezanskaia and Rafael Guillermo García exchanged their vows while submerged in the Noh Mozón Cenote near Tecoh.

Both the bride and groom on Monday opted for formal white traditional wedding attire instead of wetsuits. 

After the wedding, the couple returned to Mérida and toured the Paseo de Montejo on a horse-drawn carriage, as is traditional. 

Earlier: A push for more Yucatecan destination weddings

The underwater ceremony was coordinated by Yucatán Dive Center and Buzos Técnico Deportivos de Yucatán.

This was not the first underwater wedding held in Yucatán. The first recorded “cenote wedding” took place in 2014. Video below in Spanish.

Yucatán’s destination wedding industry had been steadily growing before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dozens of hotels and haciendas in the state offer a wide range of wedding packages and experiences.
