Bale, 29, and Rhys-Jones, 27, are said to have exchanged vows last month in a wedding extravaganza lasting three days on the island of Majorca.

The couple’s children, Alba Violet, 6, Nava Valentina, 3, and one-year-old Axel Charles were there for the big occasion.

They were joined by Gareth Bale’s parents, Frank and Debbie, as well as Rhys-Jones’ mother Suzanne McMurray, while other family members were reportedly snubbed.

However, despite spending the past six years at the Bernabeu, none of Bale’s Real co-stars were there to witness the nuptials.

Local newspaper Diario de Mallorca claim there wasn’t a single member of Real’s squad in attendance at the wedding.

And that’s despite Bale’s team-mate Lucas Vazquez also being in Majorca at the time the ceremony, which took place on June 20.

Vazquez was in town with his son Lucas, parents and in-laws while his wife Macarena Rodriguez enjoyed a trip to America with friends.

However, the Real Madrid winger did not break away from the family party to see Real team-mate Bale get hitched to Rhys-Jones, who he’s been an item with for more than 15 years.

Bale’s wedding took place at the 17th century Majorcan fortress named La Fortaleza, where parts of BBC thriller The Night Manager were filmed in 2016.

And there was no expense spared as Bale and Rhys-Jones finally got married after years of waiting.

The couple are said to have jetted in interior designers and decorators, some of whom are based in Germany, to prepare one of the villas at La Fortaleza five days before the ceremony took place.

A band from the UK also flew out to the Spanish island to entertain Bale, Rhys-Jones and their select few guests.

As well as strong security measures being in place, companies involved in the wedding were made to sign confidentiality agreements ensuring their employees would pay £44,515 (€50,000) fines if any images were leaked.

Bale’s decision not to include his Real team-mates in his wedding plans comes after years of claims he has not adapted to life as a Galactico and integrated with his co-stars.

And his marriage took place as speculation surrounding his future continues to rumble on, with Real happy to move him on this summer as he is not integral to Zinedine Zidane’s plans.

Express Sport understands Florentino Perez has considered offering the wideman to Tottenham in return for Christian Eriksen.

Manchester United is another potential destination for Bale, who could be offered a Premier League return by Chelsea if their transfer ban is overturned.

Bale returned to Real for pre-season training on Monday but was booed by some fans as he arrived at their Valdebebas base.
