Mallorca: Rafael Nadal married his childhood sweetheart of 14 years, Xisca Perello, at a castle in Mallorca on Saturday.

Nadal, the 19-time grand slam champion, tied the knot with 31-year-old Perello at La Fortaleza, with a reported 350 guests invited to a private ceremony.

The tennis player's nuptials with Perelló was held at an extravagant British-owned fortress.

Guests were seen arriving to the fortress La Fortaleza. 

At Nadal's Majorca wedding, Juan Carlos I of Spain was reportedly one of the  guests. Michelin-star chef, Quique Dacosta, was reportedly in charge of catering.

Nadal, 33, met his wife through his younger sister Maribel, a childhood friend of Perello.

The original fort, which is now Spain's most expensive property, was built in 1628 to defend Majorca against invaders.

The tennis ace revealed in January that he was engaged to his long-term girlfriend Perello following a 14 year courtship.

The fort was bought by Lord Lupton in 2011 for £30 million, despite the original £75 million asking price, according to the British press.
