Indeed Rafael Nadal, AKA 19-time grand slam winner, world number two in tennis and certified heartthrob is officially off the market, and we're both over the moon for him and his stunning new wife Mery Perello, and also just a tenny tiny tad-bit heartbroken... just a little.

But tennis legends aside, there was something else that's completely sapped up our attention - Mery's stunning wedding dress.
