SEALED WITH A FISH.

BARMY bride and groom Eileen Walker and Gavin Anderson will take the plunge today when they tie the knot in a giant fish tank.

The couple are taking their vows at Deep Sea World in Fife as six sand sharks and 3,000 fish look on.

The underwater service at the North Queensferry tourist attraction will be conducted by Rev Ron Thompson.

And guests in the main auditorium will be able to watch the ceremony via a special video link.

They'll also be joining in with the couple as they sing hymns - including their favourite All Creatures Great and Small - using state-of-the-art underwater microphones.

The Fife pair, who are both experienced divers, have had wedding wetsuits specially made for the 'I do' dive.

And Gavin, 32, said: "I can't wait. I love diving and have always dreamed of getting married underwater.

"I just feel so lucky that we are able to do this, and so lucky that I am marrying someone as special as Eileen who wants to do this with me."

Eileen - who will carry a weighted waterproof posy - said: "If a shark comes along we'll just push it away.

"They might be curious but they shouldn't be that hungry."
