Scuba instructor and former student marry underwater in Florida

Dec. 26 (UPI) -- A couple who met four years ago as a scuba instructor and student were married in a Florida location appropriate to their relationship -- under water.

Thomas Mould, 31, a sergeant in the British Army, met U.S. citizen Sandra Hyde when he was sent for dive training four years ago, and romance soon blossomed between the teacher and her student.


The couple tied the knot Thursday in an underwater ceremony at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, located next to Molasses Reef off the Key Largo coast.

Photos from the sub-aquatic nuptials were posted to Facebook by The Florida Keys & Key West official tourism account.

The couple, who exchanged vows with the help of a waterproof tablet, said they will remain in the Keys for their honeymoon before going home to England.
