Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny married his longtime girlfriend Claire Beaudouin in France on Saturday, which coincided with a number of players tieing the knot across Europe.
The likes of Raphael Varane, Pedro, and Fernando Llorente all enjoyed their ceremonies simultaneously, but there seemed to be some exclusivity regarding Koscielny’s wedding.
The Instagram snap comes courtesy of Bacary Sagna’s wife, presumably a friend of the wedded couple after her time in London over the past eight years.
Koscielny’s wedding caps off a tremendous campaign for the Frenchman personally, and his consistent displays allowed us to steady the ship at the back following a horrendous start to the campaign.

When we become efficient defensively, the players know we possess the ability to create chances and score goals at the other end – which directly translated into results.
We only lost three games in all competitions following New Year’s Day, the kind of consistency that is needed throughout next season if we’re to challenge for the Premier League.
