Arsenal team-mates: Kieran Gibbs, Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey, Thomas Vermaelen, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who flew in on easyJet were all in attendance on Saturday (15th June, 2013) as Theo Walcott wedded his girlfriend of 9 years Melanie Slade in the capital of the Italian region of Tuscany.

England winger Theo, 24, and his wife Mel, 23, requested NO gifts from guests at the wedding ceremony at Castello Di Vincigliata, but instead asked for donations to the Willow Foundation, set up by Arsenal legend Bob Wilson to help seriously ill 16 to 40-year-olds, and Macmillan Cancer Support after Melanie’s sister Sarah was diagnosed with kidney cancer at 16.

The pair met in 2004 at WestQuay shopping centre in Southampton, where his career began. A friend said: “They fell in love before all the fame, and that has laid a strong foundation.”
