Steve McManaman with his long-time girlfriend, Victoria.

Majorca is getting ready to host the wedding of the year this Saturday when Real Madrid and England football star Steve McManaman marries fiancee Victoria. Not only will the wedding ceremony be a spectacular affair, so too will the reception which is being held at one of the island's top hotels and is expected to be attended by over 250 guests. The reception is believed to have a very Spanish flavour with flamenco dancers and fireworks with some of the guests having already arrived on the island. McManaman's Real Madrid teammates Hiero and Morientes have started their post World Cup summer holidays on the island over the past few days and the big question is who else from the Champions League winning side will be attending the wedding. Real Madrid chairman Florentino Perez, deeply impressed by Macca's crucial and decisive second goal againt Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final, keeps his luxury yacht moored in Puerto Portals. But being in Majorca, where Steve and Victoria have owned a luxury chalet in Son Vida for the past two years, the wedding is in an ideal spot for the scores of friends and family coming from the UK. Victoria speaks three languages and teaches English law to students in Madrid and it has been reported in the past that she tells her students that her boyfriend is a plumber because Macca is a huge personality in Madrid, one of the club's most popular players in the capital. It is widely rumoured that his former Liverpool teammate and very close friend Robbie Fowler is going to be best man, but any number of Premier League stars, especially former Liverpool and England teammates, could pop up in Majorca over the next few days along with personalities from the world of showbiz and music. As expected, the reception is shrouded in secrecy, but the location the couple have chosen could not be better and nothing has been ignored in organising the celebrations.
