He shoots, he scores! He’s used to performing in front of a cheering crowd. But there was undoubtedly no greater feeling for Mario Gomez when he said his vows in front of his friends and family at his wedding to Carina Wanzung in Munich on Friday
It was clear to see why the handsome striker couldn’t keep the grin off his face as his model bride dazzled in a chic white gown that perfectly suited her enviable frame.
Featuring delicate spaghetti straps, the ivory gown complemented her tanned and toned complexion, and bore a deep V-neckline that flared out into an elegant full skirt that culminated in a subtle train that followed her as she walked.
Whilst the bridal gown oozed understated glamour, the stunning star added a touch of playfulness to the ensemble with a chunky silver belt that bore a large bow across the front, further highlighting her hourglass frame.
Wearing her honey coloured locks loose and tousled, she swept the front of her tresses back into a chic up-style that was fastened in place with fresh flowers.
Opting for a neutral make-up palette on the big day, the blonde beauty accentuated her stunning features with a subtle sweep of rouge tracing her defined cheekbones, whilst a slick of mascara framed her brilliantly blue eyes.

Their nuptials came at a monumentous time for Mario, who decided on Thursday that he will not play for Besiktas again because of the political situation in Turkey.
On Friday an attempted army coup took place in Turkey as the military tried to overthrow president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, with 161 civilians and police killed.
Mario scored 28 goals in 41 games for the Istanbul club, while on loan from Fiorentina, and won the Turkish league title last season. He agreed a season-long loan last year, which included an option for a permanent move, but the forward has confirmed he will not return.
‘There are no sporting or any other reasons that have made me make this decision,’ Mario announced on Facebook. ‘It was a difficult decision that I had to think about a lot, I have to tell you Besiktas fans personally that it is very heavy for me that I will not be playing for this great club in front of you wonderful fans in this unique stadium anymore.’

‘A huge thanks to the club, to you fans and to all the people with whom my family and I had a lot of wonderful times.
‘It was a fantastic year with the championship providing the absolute highlight. I hope that these political problems can be solved in a peaceful manner soon.’
