An Elegant Affair

British papers have been buzzing with the news that Manchester United soccer star Wayne Rooney chartered the 237-foot RM Elegant as part of the week-long celebration surrounding his wedding to childhood sweetheart, Coleen McLaughlin. According to the Daily Mail, the 22-year old lovebirds invited 60-something guests to help celebrate their upcoming nuptials. The pair entertained friends and family by throwing numerous parties and dinners onboard, including an elegant masked ball (pictured here).

Papers are hailing it as a real Cinderella story: The young couple from humble Croxeth, Liverpool, treating themselves to a wedding-extravaganza onboard a luxurious yacht. And luxurious she is: RM Elegant accommodates 30 guests and includes features such as a massage room, sauna, gym, and a deck jacuzzi. To check out other celebrities and dignitaries who've been spending time relaxing onboard the world's biggest yachts, look for our August issue's Power and Motoryacht 100.
