Photos From Leo Messi's Lavish Argentinian Wedding To His Wife Antonella Roccuzzo

Barcelona Leo Messi married his childhood sweetheart and mother of his two children Antonella Roccuzzo on Friday in a lavish ceremony in his Argentine hometown Rosario
Following the private ceremony, the couple appeared happy and relaxed as they walked a red carpet before hundreds of journalists at a hotel and casino complex, Roccuzzo donning a tight, mermaid-style gown by Spanish designer Rosa Clara.

The couple's children Thiago, four, and Mateo, one, had front seats at the ceremony attended by some 260 guests, including Shakira and her husband, Messi's teammate Gerard Pique, and numerous footballers such as Messi's Barcelona strike partners Neymar and Luis Suarez.

Argentine media called it the "wedding of the century" for Rosario, the gritty northern port city where Messi, 30, and his bride, 29, met when the player was nine years old.

Messi and Antonella, who have two sons, chose to marry in their home town of Rosario, northern Argentina, where they grew up together.

Argentines were abuzz over the wedding in Rosario, an agricultural hub and the country's third-largest city about 300 kilometres northwest of Buenos Aires.

About 150 journalists were allowed to cover the event that Argentina's largest newspaper Clarin variously called the wedding "the wedding of the year" and "the wedding of the century", but they had no direct access to the ceremony or the party afterward.

The couple, who have known each other for some 25 years, banned mobile phones at the event. Staff were also sworn to secrecy and 450 police officers were drafted in for the big day.
