Underwater party in Fenland among unique celebrations for Royal Wedding
REVELLERS celebrated Kate and William’s big day in weird and wonderful ways across the globe - but only a few could say they enjoyed an underwater party.
Divers enjoyed a unique Royal Wedding party at Gildenburgh Water in Whittlesey at a fun-filled event which lasted for 12 hours. Many celebrated the happy couple’s wedding by drinking non-alcoholic bubbly underwater at the former brickyard lake site.
Free entry, swimming and canoeing for spectators at the national scuba diving centre drew the crowds with a lavish array of ‘royal dishes at peasant prices’ on offer.
Chief instructor Ian Forster said: “A Royal Wedding is a rare event and most people wanted to do something different on the day.
“Diving appeals to young and old alike, so it was a great way to enjoy some relaxing, quality time with friends and family by the water.”

To keep the fun bubbling above the water as well as under it, Mr Foster organised a treasure hunt for crowns and tiaras, mystery land and lake activities, a Royal Fancy Dress Competition, and lots of wet sponges to punish treasonous divers imprisoned in the stocks.
