Accompanied by his parents, the 33-year-old Barcelona midfielder arrived at around 18:00 PM in a black Mercedes.

The second to arrive was Víctor Valdés, together with his long-term girlfriend, Yolanda, who is pregnant with the couple's third child.

Former teammates including Santi Ezquerro, Oleguer, Gabri, Pepe Reina, and Albert Jorquera were also in attendance for Xavi's big day.

Out of the current Barça squad, Cesc Fàbregas, Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano, Pedro, Jordi Alba, and Andrés Iniesta were joined at the wedding by their respective spouses.

However, several colleagues were unavailable with Gerard Piqué currently abroad and Iker Casillas, Xavi's great friend, is still on holiday.

One of the major absences is Barcelona captain Carles Puyol, who had travel plans with his girlfriend since before Xavi and Núria surprisingly announced their wedding plans two months ago.

The couple is known for their privacy and discretion, with no speculation about their plans reported by the press before their announcement.

Núria, 31, is a fashion journalist and has been Xavi's partner since before last year's European Championship, to which she accompanied him to Poland and Ukraine.

Xavi and Núria decided to donate all of their wedding gifts to the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital and have made an initial donation of €25,000.

The newlyweds will be heading for the Seychelles for their honeymoon, before Xavi reports for preseason training on 29 July.
