While Cheryl Cole may have done her best to steal his thunder the world's number one tennis player Novak Djokovic married his childhood sweetheart Jelena Ristic just days after being crowned Wimbledon champ.

The 27-year-old tied the knot in the grounds of Montenegro's Aman Sveti Stefan resort, and told Hello! magazine the sight of his bride as she walked down the aisle totally took his breath away. Bless.

"Seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress, smiling and walking towards me... She looked like an angel," Novak told the mag.

Dressed in a gorgeous gown designed by none other that Kate Middleton's wedding dress creator of choice Sarah Burton, we can see why the tennis pro was blown away.

"I was trying to be present in that moment and memorise it," he said of the ceremony. "I was focused on her, and her smile and our baby. It really was a perfect moment."

The bride added: "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."

She gushed: "The wedding was everything we hoped it would be. Our family and closest friends united in a beautiful setting in celebration of our love.

"It was truly emotional and unforgettable for us."

The couple said "I do" married on Thursday, just four days after Djokovic beat Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final. Now that's what we call one heck of a wedding present.

"I am marrying the woman I love and there is no better feeling than that," he said. "To win Wimbledon and to now be preparing for fatherhood - I couldn't ask for more."
