    Alejandra looked resplendent in a gown by upmarket Spanish bridal label Navascués, which specialises in chic, pared back designs.

    Alejandra’s long-sleeved dress featured a deep V-cut back, playful puff shoulders and button detailing on the cuffs and back.

    Instead of a veil, she wore a cream wool cape which draped beautifully down her back and formed a dramatic train. The unusual piece was fastened at the neck with a glittering brooch.

    The bride finished the look with grey-blue pointed pumps and a simple pair of diamond studs.

    To accentuate the simplicity of her ensemble, Alejandra wore her hair in a simple bun at the base of her neck and kept her makeup to a minimum. Her bouquet was a timeless combination of white and green blooms.

    Guests took a far more outrageous approach. Spanish fashion designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada, 13th Marchioness of Castelldosrius, and her daughter Cosima Ramirez stole the show in vibrant eye-catching ensembles.

    Ágatha opted for a red and orange panel coat, worn with red tights, yellow shoes and a green frock. Meanwhile her daughter was a vision in pink and paired her fluffy bubblegum coat with opaque pink tights and towering heels.

    She accessorised the look with a pair of pink sunglasses and contrasting blue headband.

    The reception was held at a nearby restaurant where guests were entertained by a live band. Social media videos show couples taking to the dancefloor set up in between the long wooden tables.

    Echoing the bride’s less-is-more look, decoration was kept to a minimum, with just a few small bunches of flowers scattered around the venue.

    外側, heaters were erected to keep guests warm as they mingled.
