There is something about diving that teaches us about commitment. When faced with a space as vast as the sea, one can literally go and explore anywhere. But the buddy system that is instilled in every diver reminds us to stay committed to the dive plan, while ensuring there is always someone to depend on and to watch our back. This couple is off to a good start – theirs is a theme that their diver friends will easily resonate with, and it’s also a simple way to share a part of their life that means a lot to them with their friends who don’t dive. Thanks, Bloc Memoire, for connecting us to this great love story, and for capturing all the beautiful moments and pretty details.

Olive: “We are avid scuba divers. We actually met in Malaysia on a dive trip. We were in a long distance relationship for a year, and we met every three months to go diving in the best dive sites in Asia, namely Wakatobi, Sipadan and Bali.

“We wanted our wedding to be fun, casual and, at the same time, dreamy and romantic, so when we saw North Border (just by chance!), we both said, ‘We’ve found our venue!’ We just needed fairy lights to add that dreamy feel.

“Scuba diving is what brought us together so we thought of a scuba diving themed wedding, from the invitations to the venue décor and even the photobooth props! I like crafts and I wanted to contribute a personal touch so I DIY-ed the table namecards with an underwater theme as well, just to add something personal that the guests could take home.

“The most memorable moments were when we exchanged our vows, and when the solemniser pronounced us husband and wife. We looked at our family and friends, and all we saw were happy faces, bright smiles and tears of joy.”

Tips from the bride: “Invest in the right stuff for your big day, i.e. invest in things that will make your wedding more fun and more ‘you’. Personalise as much as you can.”
