Bale set to tie the knot on private Balearic island of Tagomago

Gareth Bale and partner Emma Rhys-Jones are putting the final preparatory touches on their wedding day and have selected the small private island of Tagomago as the setting for the big day.

Tagomago island

Situated to the north-east of Ibiza, Tagomago is private property with the small island measuring just 1,525 metres long by 113 wide. 150 specially invited guests will make the journey to the island from Ibiza with the island only accessible by boat with the couple are also contemplating another service in Cardiff after the event for those who can't make it to the private Balearic island where it's speculated that the summer event will be guarded by a specially hired armed security service.

The pair had planned to get married last year in Italy but a legal problem for Rhys-Jones' father meant the event had to be re-scheduled. The island holds a special place emotionally for the couple as it's the location where the Real Madrid striker initially proposed to Rhys-Jones in 2016.
