The pair tied the knot in the newly-opened wedding chapel located inside the paddock in Sin City, which has come to be known as the Wedding Capital of the World. 

The new chapel was set up inside the circuit offering special F1 wedding packages featuring the slogan ‘Race to the Altar’. 

And 1997 world champion Villeneuve took full advantage to become the first F1 driver to get married in a paddock.
