Record breaking Otter swim stars Dave Warren and Gina Hobson became Mr and Mrs in truly unique style this October on a SwimQuest swimming wedding holiday in Formentera, just off Ibiza.
Gina, Dave & Otters, frineds & family members, headed over to Spain, to celebrate their marriage & take part in group sea swims. The wedding / holiday itinerary included six swim guides, four powerboats, one fishing boat, an underwater photo shoot, copious bottles of fizz, swimming games, wedding themed swim hats, beach bar welcome drinks, a sunset reception, fine dining with sea views, marine themed favours, and a sunrise wedding breakfast swim. It was "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share our favourite sport with our friends and family, combining it with our wedding.” (Gina's words). “The water around Formentera Island is so clear; it’s a breath-taking place. This was the perfect excuse to get everyone we know in the water,” (Dave's words).
The morning before the wedding, guests completed a 4km swim along Playa des Illetes beach. The following day, guests swam from the hotel and up the coast to a headland, on a post wedding ‘recovery swim’ before taking part in the underwater wedding photo shoot in the afternoon.
By all accounts Dave & Gina looked ace, everyone had a ball, and we all wish Dave & Gina would get married every year.
Congrats Dave & Gina, from everyone at Otter. We couldn't be happier for you.
