For several years, the Catalan giants offer their facilities to happy couples that want to make their vows in such an emblematic location as the Camp Nou.

And on Thursday evening, just 48 hours before El Clásico, Kenya Kishimoto and Nozomi, a Japanese couple with a passion for football and Barça in particular, tied the knot in the stadium.

The civic ceremony was attended by a small group of people on the Barça field.

Speaking to Barça TV, the groom said. "I have lived in Barcelona for 15 years and I have never missed a Barça match. This is the theatre of my dreams."

Kenya got a shirt with the name of his hero Carles Puyol on the back, while Nozomi's bore the name of Andrés Iniesta.

They are the first couple to contract the Civil Ceremony at the Camp Nou service, which also includes a photo shoot in some of the most emblematic parts of the ground, such as the presidential zone, the dressing rooms and the mixed zone.
