Germany captain Philipp Lahm's fairytale nuptials

Friday July 16, 2010

Just days after his team took third spot at the World Cup, German national captain Philipp Lahm had another reason to smile.

The 26-year-old footballer said 'I do' to girlfriend of two years Claudia Schattenberg, 25, in two ceremonies on Wednesday.

The handsome couple began their special day with a casual and intimate civil ceremony at the city hall in Aying, Germany.

And after lunching with a small group of friends and family, the two celebrated their union in fairytale fashion.

The beautiful bride changed into a stunning princess gown while the groom chose a classic black and white tuxedo for the religious ceremony.

Later, the newly-married pair, who have known each other for ten years, put their happiness on display as they took a ride through the town in a horse-drawn carriage.
