On June 12th 2008 the Manchester United and England striker tied the knot with TV presenter and childhood sweetheart Coleen McLoughlin in a beautiful wedding in Italy, land of romance. The couple, both 22 at the time, held two separate ceremonies; the first a legal ceremony overseen by just their parents and two witnesses, and then a religious ceremony which friends and family also attended.
The bride wore three different wedding dresses throughout the day, all bespoke creations, as well as a pair of stunning high heeled shoes encrusted with crystals. The groom looked sporty yet elegant, as befits a footballer on his wedding day!
It is reported that the couple spent over £5 million on their wedding day celebrations, which lasted an extravagant three days. Despite this, the wedding was relatively intimate with just close friends and family invited to attend. The pair are unusual for a celebrity couple in that they met when they were just twelve and have been together since the age of sixteen, making this moment even more romantic.
