Lionel Messi and Wife Antonella Rocuzzo

Lionel “Leo” Messi, the 30-year-old Argentine considered to be one of the best football players in the world, married his 29-year-old childhood sweetheart, Antonella Roccuzzo, on Friday in their hometown of Rosario, Argentina.

As Messi is the third-highest-paid athlete in the world, bringing in $80 million (£62 million) in salary and endorsements, the event certainly didn’t disappoint.

The glitzy, star-studded bash took place at the City Center Rosario complex and was attended by a host of football royalty, including Luis Suarez, Cesc Fabregas, Javier Mascherano, and Carles Puyol.

Guests were instructed to bring several outfits for the glamorous affair, according to The Daily Mail, while mobile phones were strictly off-limits. Some 450 police officers were even deployed to the event.

Fortunately for us, some guests managed to take photos and video footage. Scroll down for a peek behind the scenes of the lavish wedding.
