Arsenal footballer Aaron Ramsey arrived in style at his wedding to his childhood sweetheart as he jetted in via helicopter.
The 23-year-old star looked dapper as he touched down at Caldicot Castle in his native Wales to tie the knot with Colleen Rowlands on Saturday.
He wore a navy blue suit and matching tie for the occasion and was seen making sure his short coiffed hair was perfectly in place.
Several of Aaron’s teammates turned out for his big day including fellow Arsenal player Theo Walcott, who is missing from England’s World Cup squad due to injury.
Aaron’s Wales teammate Gareth Bale – the most expensive player in the world following his £85million move to Real Madrid last year – was also said to be in attendance, as was fellow Welsh footballer Craig Bellamy.
Caldicot councillor John Marshall welcomed the star – who was born in nearby Caerphilly, south Wales – and praised him for getting hitched locally.
He said: ‘A huge celebrity like Aaron Ramsey getting married at Caldicot Castle is a coup for Caldicot and for the castle.’
The pair asked guests to donate money to the Parkinsons UK charity rather than bringing gifts.
Following the ceremony, Aaron and Coleen headed to Venice for their honeymoon and posted several messages on social networking sites.
Aaron shared a picture of an idyllic location in the city and added the caption: ‘Enjoying my honeymoon with my wife in #Venice (sic)’
He also thanked his family and friends for helping the happy couple to make their wedding day go off without any problems.
He tweeted: ‘Thank you to everyone who was a part of the last week for making it so special for us #MrAndMrs . Ramsey enjoyed a wonderful season with arsenal and has added another trophy to his collection. Happy married life to the Ramsey’s.
