Meet the 'mermaid bride': The woman who got married in the middle of the ocean.

Susana always dreamed of getting married in the ocean. She’d grown up surrounded by water and remembers her happiest days as those when she was in the sea.

But when she told her wedding planner about her dream ceremony, she was told the idea was “too complicated”.

Susana – from New Jersey – thought she would have to marry her fiancé, Jovany, from Columbia, on the beach…until the couple met del Sol Photography owner Sol Tamargo.

“She told us, ‘You HAVE to do it! You have to get married in the water, it will be AMAZING!'” Susanna said.

"I adore meeting authentic people who have a vision and want to do things differently, something that is crazy to most people... but not to me" Sol said of the epic wedding ceremony.

Sol helped Susanna plan her dream day in the Caribbean, which involved five wedding dresses in total - including a pin Maggie Sottero wedding dress, two boats, a catamaran to transport the couple's 100 plus wedding guests.

There were eight photographers, videographers and drone operators working to capture the pair's unique big day at El Cielo Cozumel in Mexico.

Sol said the experience was not only memorable for the newly-married couple, but said shooting the event was a "unique moment" in her career.

"I was shooting from the boat, then I jumped into the water wearing a snorkel, mask and wetsuit and mermaid cap in the middle of a wedding! When do you ever get to do something like that?!" she said.

"Doing something out of the ordinary is challenging but we live for these unique moments - the more 'impossible' the better!"
