It was love all for tennis legend Boris Becker as he exchanged vows with Sharlely “Lilly” Kerssenberg on June 12, 2009. The steps of the Seganini Museum in St. Moritz proved to be a stairway to heaven for the pair as they entered the St. Moritz venue for the civil ceremony.
Showcasing her individualistic sense of style, the bride donned a white trouser suit for the I do’s– a relaxed yet refined look enhanced with the addition of a dainty bouquet of ivory roses. According to Bild, supermodel Claudia Schiffer, champion cyclist Jan Ulrich, Prince Albert of Monaco and the groom’s two sons were among those who witnessed the three-time Wimbledon winner– dressed in a grey pinstripe suit paired with a pewter tie– pledge his devotion to the Dutch model.
Pronounced husband and wife, the newlyweds would later celebrate their union with a religious blessing at Regina Pacis Chapel before welcoming 200 friends and family members to their post-wedding festivities at Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. Wanting to share their happy day, the public will have the opportunity to take a peek at the festivities when German network RTL broadcasts coverage of the wedding.
