Mr & Mrs: Raul Albiol & Alicia Roig
We’re wishing these lovebirds all the best and hope pics of their honeymoon surface soon! Image Source: Marca.com.
Always ones who have tons of time and tasks on our hands, we’re just now getting ’round to celebrating Raul Albiol’s recent nuptials. Don’t be shell-shocked; in order to live up to your expectations of us as loose – but incredibly fun – women, it would be bad form to promptly publish our posts.
Thus, we’re sending our cheeriest congratulations to recent GQ Spain interviewee and model an entire week after he finally put a ring on his lady/fellow GQ subject, Alicia Roig, in their hometown of Valencia. In our eyes, giving a gal her rightful, legal WAG rights is one of the best gifts a footballer can present to his loved one, second only to giving the gift of life two times over (back to back births, mind you).
The couple did a superb job of flexing their all star guest list muscles, with club and national team-mates Xabi Alonso and his wife, Nagore, and Alvaro Arbeloa and his wife Carlota Ruiz representing the ‘famous footballing faces’ crowd. As Albiol’s bestie, A.A. performed double duties last Friday by serving as both an open bar patron and a groomsman.
Funny/ironic moment of their special day: while they were both late to the ceremony due to unexpected car troubles, Alicia actually beat her husband-to-be to the knot-tying spot. Any guesses as to why the man of the hour was the very last person to arrive to his own wedding, savvy speculators?
Or, at minimum, can you humour us and comply with our request for feedback on Alicia’s golden apple and string of flowers bouquet?
