Nadal told 60 Minutes in 2021 that the decision to pop the question to his longtime love was kind of a no-brainer. “When you’ve been together for 15 years, we don’t need to talk much,” he said. “Just, well, we have to do it, finally.” “Yes or no!” Perelló joked.

The couple had a wedding straight out of a storybook in October 2019, when they tied the knot at La Fortazleza, a 17th century Spanish castle in Mallorca. Insider touted the property as one of the most expensive in Spain, and Hello! reports that it has also served as the filming location for the BBC’s The Night Manager.

There, the pair reportedly welcomed 350 of the nearest and dearest friends and family members to celebrate in their big day, including former King of Spain, Juan Carlos I.

Perelló wore not one, but two stunning wedding looks for the occasion, both of which were designed by Rosa Clara. “I feel so fortunate to the designer of Mery’s wedding dress for her wedding with Rafa Nadal,” the Barcelona designer said on Instagram. “The connection between me and Mery was immediate.”
