After helping his country win the World Cup in Qatar, Martinez initially travelled to Buenos Aires in his homeland to take part in the celebrations.
Lionel Messi and Co paraded the trophy in the streets before thousands of delirious fans.
For Tagliafico the party has continued, as he finally enjoyed his wedding ceremony with partner Carolina Calvagni.
But Martinez, 24, wasn’t there.
Tagliafico didn’t seem to mind, however, as he kissed his bride while wearing his World Cup winners’ medal around his neck.
The happy couple also held a World Cup trophy aloft during their ceremony.
Tagliafico and Carolina initially wed a year ago, but were unable to have a full ceremony due to Covid-19.
They made up for lost time yesterday, with Tagliafico donning a black tuxedo and Carolina wearing a white floral dress.

Opening up about her wedding, Carolina wrote on Instagram: “We got married last year, but this year we have the party, the wedding.
“December 27th marks one year and the 27th of this year we married ring, dress, party, everything.”
While Martinez is understood to be back in the UK, he didn’t return in time to feature in United’s first Prem game back against Nottingham Forest last night.
Instead the Red Devils deployed Raphael Varane, who also played in the World Cup final, alongside makeshift centre-half Luke Shaw.
Erik ten Hag had previously said: “Lisandro Martinez has to accept that on the 27th the Premier League will go on.”
Martinez shared an image from home to Instagram, showing that he was tuned in to the match.
