Novak Djokovic ties the knot with Jelena Ristic

14 Jul

The 27-year-old Serbian sportsman exchanged vows with Jelena Ristic in the grounds of Montenegro’s Aman Sveti Stefan resort on Thursday, just four days after Djokovic beat Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final.

The bride wore a strapless ivory gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and the groom a grey suit with a black and white tie.

Djokovic told Hello! magazine, which had the rights to the ceremony, that ‘Seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress, smiling and walking towards me – she looked like an angel. I was trying to be present in that moment and memorise it. I was focused on her, and her smile and our baby. It really was a perfect moment.’

Ristic told the magazine: ‘I was very nervous and everything seemed a blur. I was seeing him through tears and immediately started crying when I saw him. I was just so happy and probably being pregnant makes it quite difficult to control the emotions. I am so blessed to have him in my life. I couldn’t ask for a better partner than him.’

Guests included tennis champ Boris Becker, Janko Tipsarević and his partner Biljana, Viktor Triocki, Miljan Amanovic, Sarah Ferguson, Richard Branson, Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova.

The couple have been together for 8 years. This will be the first marriage for both of them.
