Tennis star Rafael Nadal has tied the knot with Mery "Xisca" Perelló, his girlfriend of 14 years.

The childhood sweethearts said "I do" on Saturday, in a ceremony held in their hometown of Mallorca, Spain.

The bride chose to work with designer Rosa Clará to create her perfect wedding gown. "I know it’s an enormous responsibility, but it’s an honor for me," Clará explained in an IGTV video, posted on the day of the wedding. "The connection between Mery and me was immediate."

Clará's final design featured a bodice with "Art Deco-inspired French lace with delicate patterning, flower motifs and microbeading on the meticulously hand-embroidered fabric," according to Clará's Instagram post. The intricate top was paired with a simple skirt with a detachable train.

For his part, Nadal wore what appeared to be an all-gray take on a morning suit, complete with a waistcoat and morning coat.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple's ceremony was held at Mallorca's La Fortaleza, and over 350 guests were in attendance—including Juan Carlos I, the former king of Spain.

Perelló is a notoriously private person, and Nadal has also been reticent to share much about the wedding (at least, in the two days since it took place). The tennis player did, however, share a cheeky post on Instagram this Saturday, which showcased a stunning view—likely that from the beachside La Fortaleza. Nadal only captioned the image with an emoji (😜), but fans quickly understood the post's subtext, congratulating him and his wife.
