Sydney marriage celebrant Meggan Brummer recovers beachgoer's wedding ring at ... trends now
A marriage celebrant has recalled the incredible moment she reunited a beachgoer with her wedding ring found at the bottom of the ocean during her daily swim.
Meggan Brummer was snorkelling at Sydney's Balmoral Beach on Friday.
A frantic woman approached her, explaining that her wedding ring had fallen off her finger and slipped through the pier's wooden slats into the sea.
Ms Brummer offered to help and, after several 3-4 metre dives, found the precious ring among seaweed and algae at the bottom of the ocean 20 minutes later.
She rose to the surface and returned the ring to relieved beachgoer Paola, who revealed the band's sentimental value.

'She explained how her husband gave it to her when they got married 13 years ago at a time where they didn't have much money,' Ms Brummer told Daily Mail Australia.
'Her husband eventually upgraded the ring, but the opal fell off and was expensive to repair. Paola had just started wearing the original wedding ring again when it fell off last Friday.'
Paola was beside herself after the ring was miraculously found.
'She ran up to me and gave the biggest hug,' Ms Brummer recalled.
'It meant everything to her. Had it happened the next day, I would have never found it as the water wasn't as visible.'
The Mosman resident has been a marriage celebrant for more than a decade, including dozens of ceremonies at Balmoral.
'Who knows, she and her husband could be doing renewing their vows with me in the future!' Ms Brummer joked.
'Maybe we could even do it down at Balmoral.'
Avid snorkeler Meggan Brummer also retrieved an Apple phone from the water at Balmoral last week which has since been returned to its owner

The remarkable discovery was found days after Ms Brummer found an Apple phone from the water and has since tracked down its owner to return it.
The phone was still working after two days after it was accidentally dropped in the water after it was soaked in rice to dry it out.
