Let the world breathe a sigh of relief for Saturday marked one of Europe’s first society weddings in 18 months. The occasion saw the union of the scion of one of Spain’s most aristocratic families (the Albas) to the daughter of one of the country’s most powerful business families (the Corsinis).

Carlos Fitz-James Stuart, the Count of Osorno and son of the Duke of Alba, married Belén Corsini at Madrid’s Liria Palace, an 18th century estate that has been in Carlos’ family for centuries. The intimate ceremony was attended by cousins and close friends, many of whom make up Spain’s aristocratic elite who were able to celebrate in style after Spain lifted their state of emergency. Guests included the Count’s older brother, Fernando Fitz-James Stuart, the Duke of Huéscar, and his wife Sofia Palazuelo, alongside a glamorous assortment of others.

The couple looked positively golden in the photographs documenting the special occasion. Belén dazzled in an elegant floor-length white gown by Spanish brand, Navascués, with slightly puffed shoulders, long sleeves and a delicate detachable tulle train, her hair swept back in a flowing high ponytail. Carlos, like his brother at his own wedding back in 2018, looked dashing in red military uniform.  (Read more.)
