Arsenal midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has walked down the aisle his fiancée Betty Vardanyan, a daughter to an Armenian politician, Mikael Vardanyan in a lovely ceremony took place in Venice, Italy on Monday 17th, June 2019 at undisclosed church and wedding venues.
The Armenian national is the third gunner to wed this month after Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac.
The 30-year-old football rocked a classic black suit with a bow tie while his gorgeous bride looked lovely in a floor-length gown designed in lace and floral designs on the plunging neckline of the dress and straps.
Vardanyan also accessorised her look with a long veil, glittering silver mini tiara, statement earrings and a necklace with a cross plus a bunch of pink and white peonies which was her choice of bouquet.
After the church ceremony, the couple took a boat ride to the reception in a midst of watchful eyes of the crowds that gathered to look at them.
They also maximised the boat ride to have amazing photo shoots and a video recording by their photography team.
Mkhitaryan also took to his Instagram page to share the good news with his followers and how thrilled he is about embarking on this new journey.
He posted with a heart emoji, “Marry me and stay with me forever.”
The two got engaged last year in November and kept their relationship a secret according to reports by UK’s Daily Mail online news website.
