Some of the guests who attended the occasion include LuisSuárez, Neymar, Gerard Piqué, ex Barca team mates, Carles Puyol, Xavi Hernandez and Samuel Eto'o at an event held in Rosario, Argentina.

The union, which was nothing short of glamour saw an Argentine newspaper, Clarin aptly describe it as "the wedding of the century".

Messi and his wife who already have two children, Thiago and Mateo, met when they were children and had kept the connection even after he moved to Spain at the age of 13.

Roccuzzo is reported to be the cousin of the Barcelona forward's best friend, Lucas Scaglia, who plays as a midfielder for Jacksonville Armada in the North American Soccer League.
