The first society wedding of the year! Politician’s daughter Alejandra Anson ties the knot with businessman Ignacio Sampedro in an intimate Madrid service – and the guests almost steal the show in VERY vibrant ensembles
The summer wedding season is still months away, but that didn’t stop one stunning Spanish society bride from tying the knot in an intimate wedding over the weekend.
Alejandra Anson Quintana, founder of restaurant consultancy firm Anson & Bonet, was joined by family and friends as she wed communications guru Ignacio Sampedro, at a small church in Madrid.
The bride is the daughter of Rafael Anson, 86, an influential former politician and honorary president of the International Academy of Gastronomy, and Inmaculada Quintana Cabrera. Meanwhile the groom is a businessman and founder of a successful communications agency.
Mr Anson, who was awarded the French Legion of Honour, looked every inch the proud father as he escorted his daughter into church ahead of the service.

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.

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.
