The former footballer wrote: ‘I’m happy for you. God bless and protect you always. Long live love.’
It marked the third time the ex-footballer has walked down the aisle, after previously marrying former footballer Milene.
Ronaldo organised a wedding with model Daniella Cicarelli in February 2005 at a castle in France, although it later transpired they did not officially become man and wife because neither had finalised their divorces from their previous partners.
They split three months after the castle ceremony they billed as an official wedding, with Daniella later claiming it ended because Ronaldo had been unfaithful to her.
After their relationship finished, he wed engineering student Maria Beatriz Antony.
Ronaldo shares his son Ronald, 23, with his first wife Milene, and daughters Maria Sofia, 14, and Maria Alice, 12, with his second wife Maria.
He revealed he had a vasectomy after he was confirmed as the father of Alexander, now 17, in December 2010 following a fling with waitress Michele Umezu.
Ronaldo later revealed to the Financial Times that had sperm frozen and joked he had enough still to make a football team.
He and his new wife, a successful businesswoman as well as a model, regularly visit Ibiza and were pictured kissing in the sea during an evening swim there last month following their engagement at the start of the year.
In March last year Celina duped the world into believing she was pregnant with Ronaldo’s fifth child.
She posted a selfie photo showing her dressed in pink with her hand on her stomach and wrote: ‘A new phase of my life is beginning and with it a great responsibility.’
She subsequently revealed her new ‘baby’ was actually a perfume she was launching as part of a beauty products range.
Confirming the couple picked Ibiza for their wedding because of their love of the island, a spokesman for Ronaldo told local press outside the church: ‘He came to get married in Ibiza because he likes the island and it’s important for him.’
The newlyweds are reportedly planning a party for 400 guests on Friday at Ronaldo’s home in Cala Jondal.
