Saying “I Do” to Sea Turtles

This story falls into the “Weird News” category for several reasons! A newlywed couple met two years ago while working at Sea Life London Aquarium. They thought it was a good idea to hold their Valentine’s Day wedding ceremony underwater at the very place they met. Cool? Yes. Practical?

Here at Loggerhead Marinelife Center, we don’t allow visitors to place their hands or other foreign objects in our tanks. As you can see by the wedding pictures below, sea turtles can be quite unpredictable. I think the giant green sea turtle that interrupted this couple’s big day may have been trying to “speak now or forever hold its peace.”

This story begs the question: Do you love sea turtles? “I do!”
