Some of you may have met G & V (AKA Gwyn and Valeria) while diving with 'elite' in Sharm El Sheikh.
G & V met in Sharm in February 2015 while attending a party to celebrate their success in passing their PADI Instructor exam. They both did their Instructor course the same time but with different companies. For the PADI Exam, official examiners from PADI descend on Sharm to conduct the Instructor exams over two full days here in resort.
As they both shared the same passion for the Deep blue and passing on that passion to new and experienced divers alike, they already had something in common.
Love blossomed and in January 2018 while on a mountain top in Bali Indonesia on Valeria's Birthday, G popped the question. You can see the answer from the photo above a year later.
G for those of you who hasn't visited Sharm in the last four years is now the Manager of elite dive center in Sharm and has a hands on approach where he still gets out on the boat almost every day and leads by example. He is also the son of Alun ad Moyra.
Valeria had been working for another dive center in Sharm since early 2015 and it wasn't long before she established herself as one of the leading Instructors with that company.
As V was going to be a member of the Evans family, it was only right that she joined the family business (especially as she was such a top Instructor). So now G & V work together, following in the footsteps of both sets of parents who also worked together in their respective family businesses.
It was only fitting that they got married on a beach, but where?
The only time they can both afford the time to get away together is in the low season which is January and February, just like they have done for the last few years.
Valeria hails from Genoa in Northern Italy and G from Maesteg in the Valleys of South Wales. Neither of them wanted to get married in their homeland, especially this time of year, so they chose a beach wedding in somewhere where it was comfortably warm.
Mexico was the preferred location after researching other destinations.
It was an idyllic setting, and attended by close family who also took this opportunity to take a holiday in the Mayan Riviera on The Caribbean Coast of Mexico.
After the family left for home, G & V stayed on to enjoy a Honeymoon touring the area and staying near more idyllic beaches.
They are now back in Sharm and looking forward to take you diving in the awesome Red Sea around Sharm.
Owner of Elite Diving and Divers United and has been diving since 1984.
