Pics: Manchester United stars gather in Italy as Chris Smalling gets married
Manchester United players and their WAGs flocked to Lake Como, Italy, for the sun-soaked wedding of Chris Smalling and his long-time partner Sam Cooke.
Wayne Rooney was joined by wife Coleen as their loved-up squad welcomed another married couple to their ranks, the third in a week as they make the most of a short off-season. Guests shared a drink at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, a five-star Art Nouveau palace, before being transported to the wedding venue.
Rooney was suited and booted with sunglasses on a warm summer's day, leading the United contingent that included Luke Shaw and Phil Jones. Former Red Devils player Danny Welbeck, now with Arsenal, also attended.
A series of flash boats took guests to the Villa Balbianello, a private villa that still includes parts of a 13th Century Franciscan monestry, for the ceremony. The defender took Kaya Hall to the alter at a local church in Nether Alderley, Cheshire.
