AceShowbiz - Rafael Nadal is officially off the market. The 33-year-old tennis champion tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Mery Perello Saturday afternoon, October 19. The couple swapped wedding vows at the castle La Fortaleza on the Spanish island Mallorca.
The groom looked sharp in a navy suit and his bride walked down the aisle in a long-sleeved dress by famed designer Rosa Clara who also designed dresses for the groom's mother and sister for the big day. "The whole process was full of emotions between all of us," the designer said.

Also spotted among the crowd were tennis player Feliciano Lopez and his partner Sandra Gago, retired Argentinian tennis player Juan Monaco and his girlfriend Diana Arnopoulos, Spanish actress Carolina Cerezuela, and famed watchmaker Richard Mille.
