The world’s famous footballer from Argentina, Lionel Messi weds Antonela Roccuzzo, his childhood love, in Rosario, the city of Argentina.
The wedding ceremony was held on 30th June, at the lavish hotel of the city and many football players and celebrities were invited to the plush wedding.
The 30-year-old Messi weds Antonela Roccuzzo of 29, who is also an old cousin of footballer’s best friend, Lucas Scagila. Messi first met Antonela Roccuzzo when he was just five.
The couple already had two sons: Thiago of four-year-old and Mateo of one. The couple basically started going out in 2008 and finally tied knot officially, yesterday.
About 260 guests were present at the ceremony, and among them, the football stars, Neymar, Luis Suárez, Gerard Piqué, Dani Alves and Sergio Agüero were also present. Though reportedly, the recent coaches of the player were not invited by him.
The bride’s dress was widely expected to be designed by Rosa Clara, a designer from the Barcelona. While coming to the menu, the main highlight of the big ceremony was a “sushi station.”
The couple has requested people not to give them fancy material gifts but instead to donate to the Leo Messi Foundation, which helps children in health, education, and sports.
To maintain the security of the big event, the private security firm was also performing its duties inside the hotel.
The team of 150 journalists was also at the ceremony for the coverage, but they were limited to the special press area only and were not allowed to have full access to the venue.
The deluxe wedding has been called as the “wedding of the century” and the “wedding of the year” by the Argentina’s media.
