Not a minute too soon, it has recently been confirmed when and where Manacor-born tennis superstar Rafael Nadal and long-time love Xisca Perelló will be wed.
In case you haven’t yet received your invitation, the date is set for 19th October in Puerto Pollença near the La Fortaleza Estate, made famous by the BBC series The Night Manager.
In case you haven’t yet received your invitation, the date is set for 19th October in Puerto Pollença near the La Fortaleza Estate, known locally as "Sa Fortalesa," a military fortress once owned by the UK Businessman Lord James Lupton and made famous by the BBC series The Night Manager and Turn Up Charlie with Idris Elba.
The reception will follow on the estate grounds with a feast being served up by friend and Michelin star chef Quique Dacosta. Dacosta, whose eponymous restaurants on the mainland are well-known to foodies the world over, will be serving typical Mallorcan dishes to honour the bride and groom’s roots.
Security will be incredibly tight for the notoriously private couple’s nuptials, meaning gate-crashing will be nigh on impossible.
The celebrity guest list, which is rumoured to top 500 guests, includes fellow tennis players Feliciano López and Fernando Verdasco, singer Enrique Iglesias, renowned footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, as well as a royal presence. King Juan Carlos I, whom the happy couple share a warm relationship with, will be in attendance rounding out an already glamorous event.
How long has they been together? Since they were teenagers.
Rafael Nadal Parera (known as "Rafa") b. June 3, 1986
María Francesca Perelló (known by friends as "Xisca" and "Mery") b. July 7, 1988, daughter of Bernat Perelló and Maria Pascual of Manaor.
Using her business degree, works for Rafael Nadal Foundation.
No children are expected in the immediate future. While they both want children, the Nadals are waiting until his schedule slows a bit.
Couple will reside in Manacor where the Rafa Nadal Academy educates and coaches people of all ages. The video link is in Spanish. The website has an English version - just click the link to read about the great offers.
Taking this wedding break to rest from a hand injury he began feeling at the Australian Open, we wish the beautiful couple a much deserved holiday in the Bahamas. Nadal is next scheduled to play at the Paris Open on October 26th.
