Couple Get Engaged Underwater In Great Barrier Reef

An Australian couple has gone to great depths to get engaged – popping the big question 11ft [3.5 metres] underwater in the Great Barrier Reef.

There might be plenty of fish in the sea, but Lawrence Tufnel, 29, and and Jasmine Robertson, 25, were deep enough in love to commit to one another.

Breathtaking footage shows the couple, from Perth, Western Australia, holding hands on a steel platform as a blend of exotic sealife circle around them in the World Heritage listed site in Queensland.

Footage shows one of the Sunlover Reef Cruises diving instructors holding up a sign reading: “Jasmine Robertson will you marry me?” as Lawrence takes to one knee.
