Lionel Messi scores himself a bride

Some weddings are small, humble affairs, with just a few friends and family around and then there is the type of wedding where some of the world’s most famous names gather and a red carpet is needed to showcase them all. That was the case in Rosario, Argentina over the weekend, when global soccer icon Lionel Messi returned home and tied the knot with his long time girlfriend Anotnella Roccuzzo.

There were more that 250 guests at the star-studded wedding, which has been called, inventively, “the biggest wedding of the year”.

Barcelona and Argentina star Messi, who is regarded as the greatest the game has ever seen, got married at a hotel/casino in Rosario to Roccuzzo, who he had known since he was five. Twenty five years later there he was, walking down the aisle with his childhood sweetheart. The couple already have two sons, Thiago and Mateo.

Phones were banned from the ceremony, but this got out there on the Leo Messi Fan Club Twitter page and there is a stack of photos on there from the ceremony as well if you want more.

Clearly the phone ban wasn’t all that effective at all as this video was posted of the couple concluding the ceremony before the party really started.

So who else was seen adorning the red carpet in Rosario? Shakira, wife of Messi’s Barcelona team mate Gerard Pique was there with her man. Shakira is seen here with friends and Daniella Semaan, wife of Spanish soccer star Cesc Fabregas.

Messi had of course, invited along other Barcelona team mates, like Xavi Hernandez, Cesc Fabregas, Carles Puyol, Luis Suarez, Neymar Jr and Dani Alves, the latter two posing with Messi at the wedding, as seen in this Instragram post by Neymar.

After that extremely awkward first kiss as man and wife (which Messi has been taking huge stick for on social media), the couple took to the stage to rave it up with some dance moves.The Bride’s dress was a Rosa Clara design, a mermaid style with a heart-shaped neckline and a long, flowing train.
