Their four–year relationship has had its ups and downs, including a break in 2008, but when tennis star Boris Becker walked down the aisle with model Sharley 'Lilly' Kerssenberg the ceremony was as uncomplicatedly joyous and filled with love and family as anyone could have hoped for. HELLO! had an exclusive invitation to the nuptials held this weekend in a tiny chapel in the Swiss resort of Saint Moritz, with breathtaking views over the Alps.
This week's issue, number 1077, contains 23 pages of fabulous photos of the scarlet-themed day, which was unashamedly quirky with dancing in the aisles and guests clapping to a gospel choir.
It also carries details of the international guest list headed by HELLO! columnist Tamara Beckwith, gallery owner Tim Jeffries and his gorgeous wife Malin, and not forgetting, of course, the triple Wimbledon champion's children.
Pick up your copy to discover how Boris reacted when he saw his beautiful bride in her mermaid-style gown, and read about the tears shed by the happy couple and his son's starring role in the festivities.
