Glamour as United’s Schweinsteiger weds tennis star Ivanovic
Serbian sportswoman Ana Ivanovic swapped her tennis whites for a white ensemble with a little more elegance on Tuesday as she married her footballer beau.
The tennis ace wowed in a stunning frilled gown as she wed Manchester United footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger in a beautiful Venice ceremony.
The Germany captain tied the knot with the tennis star in front of their friends, family and fellow sports stars, two years after getting together.
Ana looked sensational in her simple but chic gown which highlighted her svelte figure to perfection.
The halter-neck style emphasised her toned arms and shoulders, while a subtle keyhole split detail on the chest flashed a touch more skin.
A nipped in waist flowed down to a ruffled skirt, while she added a chic pair of white satin heels, which peeked out from under her skirt to complete her wedding day ensemble.
The blushing bride wore a simple halter neck number, featuring a keyhole cut out neckline and ruffle details on the skirt.
The finishing touches was a silver bracelet and a matching watch, while she carried a bouquet of cream flowers and added a touch more sparkle with diamond stud earrings..
Ana opted for a simple hair do, leaving her glossy brunette locks loose around her shoulders, while subtle makeup completed her look and emphasised her flawless complexion.
The groom meanwhile was smart in a dark suit but ditched the tie to match his new wife’s understated style.
A button hole added the final flourish, with the footballer slipping a pair of shades into his top pocket.
The newlyweds were a picture of happiness as they left Venice City Hall hand in hand. Also known as the Palazzo Cavalli, the Venice City Hall has been dedicated to wedding ceremonies since 1990.
The high and old Venetian style windows with the Grand Canal as a backdrop make it a picturesque setting that clearly caught the eye of Ivanovic and Schweinsteiger too.
The couple had let friends know to keep the dates from July 11 to 13 free for a celebration – one that Australian Open winner Angelique Kerber had let slip in January was to be a wedding.
And it was understandably for the married couples families too as Ivanovic’s parents, Mirsolav and Dragana, beamed with pride – with the former taking a photo on his mobile.
Ivanovic, who crashed out of Wimbledon during her first-round encounter with Ekaterina Alexandrova on June 27, and the Germany captain had travelled to Venice by private jet from Munich with close friends and family.
German media reports had suggested wedding guests were not told where the wedding would take place – simply that they should come to the airport on Monday and be ready for a surprise.
