MESUT OZIL forgot to smile as he posed for photographs as he married stunning Amine Gulse.
The German’s glum expression mirrored what many Arsenal fans have seen this season after a frustrating season on the pitch.
The 30-year-old married Gulse in the Turkish capital of Istanbul, and held their reception at the Four Seasons hotel.
Ozil looked stone-faced at the ceremony, before the new man and wife headed off to the party.
But the retired-German international looked a lot happier in the pre-wedding bash the night before.
The Arsenal star and the brunette beauty shared a number of videos and images of the party in the Turkish capital.
Ozil could be seen showing off some dodgy dance moves while Amine, who was born and raised in Sweden, looked stunning while wearing a crown.
The happy couple were celebrating the henna night, a traditional part of the wedding ceremony that takes place one day before the big day.
Earlier in the week, Amine, 26, was seen enjoying her hen do on a yacht with close family and friends.
Thursday night’s bash was more formal, with dozens of guests in attendance, with people of all ages filmed dancing and having fun.
The celebration included a belly dancer and traditional Turkish drums, while Amine sat at a the head of the room on a lavish plinth with a gold crown on her head.
Ozil then walked up to the stage and removed a red veil that Amine was wearing, before the pair took centre stage for a traditional jig with his betrothed.
