by Luke Atkinson, Manager, Emperor Marsa Alam
Love is in the Water at Marsa Alam - Ashley Basset and Sarah Cullis are regular guests here in Marsa.
Ashley contacted me about organising an underwater proposal to Sarah and arranging a videographer to record the occasion. We told Sarah that her and Ashley were chosen especially to appear in a promo video for Emperor, hence having me as a private guide and the videographer shadowing us.
After two dives in Marsa Shouna, we completed a third dive in Marsa Mubarak where I asked them to demonstrate a couple of skills for the 'promo', which got us comfortably and subtly on the sand.
Ashley then whipped out a series of flash cards with the 'big question' on and then a gold ring. Sarah, thankfully, gave the OK sign and all was sealed with a kiss!
Congratulations from Luke and the Marsa Alam team!
