    Well, it's a 2h video... I'll watch a 5 min. summary when I come across it. That said:
    Congratulations Ina & Jani!

    I did watch a good portion of it live, pretty damn cool actually!

    Some pointers on the 2h video above

    0:05 - bride and groom getting ready to dive
    0:10 - bride and groom entering the cave system, scooter passages
    0:29 - bride and groom arrive in the air dome
    0:34 - ceremony starts in the air dome inside the cave system
    1:24 - bride and groom arrive back to open water
    1:51 - wrap up ceremony on land with the mayor

    Apart from a funny speech by the reverend, it was also quite impressive logistically. Live video broadcast via fibre optical cable, field telephone from inside the cave to call the mayor, a trumpet player in the cave, champagne toast in the cave, some 69 attendees *inside* the cave, ...

    Maybe someone on this board was there and can share some impressions after they sober up tomorrow? (Partying with Fins afterall)

    It was great that they had the commentator during the first portion who explained to non-divers what was happening when bride and groom were diving into the cave. It is pretty rare in scuba related videos to have someone trying to explain anything in layman's terms in case a non-diver is watching the video
