Congratulations are in order for Kimi Räikkönen and his fiancée Minttu Virtanen. The couple tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Italy over the weekend, and a new photo posted by Scuderia Ferrari shows the beautiful couple on their big day.

The snap showed the handsome racing driver, who currently drives for Ferrari in Formula One, posing alongside his new wife Minttu.

The bride and groom, who are parents to their little boy Robin, exchanged vows at the Abbey of San Galgano in Tuscany.

Fitness model Minttu showed off her svelte figure in a lace wedding dress that featured a low-cut back. She kept her raven hair pinned up in an elegant chignon, leaving all attention to the stunning open back.

Kimi, 36, was a dapper groom in a dark suit and crisp ivory tie. The Finnish racer was spotted carrying the couple's son, who turned one in January, into the church.

Ahead of the wedding Minttu spoke to Finnish lifestyle magazine Kauneus and Terveys about their relationship.

"It took some time before he trusted me," said the mum-of-one. "Kimi is very wary of people. He always wonders if people are sincere or not.

"But eventually we established trust between us and in May last year he asked me to stop work to move in with him in Switzerland."

The couple started dating shortly after Kimi finalised his divorce from his first wife, former Miss Scandainavia winner, Jenni Dahlman. The pair married in 2004 but separated in February 2013. A year later they divorced.
