Pictured: Beautiful bride who plunged to her death in wedding dress while posing for pictures in front of waterfall
Maria Pantazopoulos, 30, fell into river after wedding dress got wet and dragged her in
Tragedy: Maria Pantazopoulos, 30, died while posing for photographs in her wedding gown. She drowned after her dress got wet and dragged her into a river near a ‘violently’ rushing waterfall in Canada
The photo-shoot was part of an increasing trend dubbed ‘Trash the Dress’ where recent brides playfully destroy their wedding dress. Pantazopoulos had commissioned the shoot following her June 9 wedding.
The distraught photographer, Louis Pagakis, told CTV Montreal that he did everything he could to save Pantazopoulos after she got into danger.
She had her wedding dress on and she said, ‘take some pictures of me while I swim a little bit in the lake,’ she went in and her dress got heavy, I tried everything I could to save her,” he told the station, visibly emotional.
