Thailand's golden couple, tennis star Paradorn Srichaphan and former Miss Universe Natalie Glebova, tied the knot surrounded by honour guards in Bangkok on Thursday. After the romantic private ceremony - which contained elements of a traditional Thai wedding - the bride and groom enjoyed their first dance as man and wife to the strains of Bryan Adams Everything I Do, I Do It For You.
The reception was held in the lavish setting of the grand ballroom at Bangkok's Oriental Hotel. There, the couple - who revealed their plans to spend the next few weeks with family and friends instead of going on a honeymoon - were joined by Thai dignitaries and celebrities.
Paradorn, whose sporting career took off in the mid 2000s and was at one time ranked world number 11 before a wrist injury put him out of the game seven months ago, fell for Natalie after the pair visited the same Buddhist temple last year. After a whirlwind eight-month romance the pair announced their engagement in April.
When asked about their plans to start a family, 25-year-old Natalie - who was born in Russia but grew up in Toronto, Canada - said: "It's up to fate, but hopefully (it will be) in the next few years."
