Congratulations to the happy couple!

Lady Charlotte Wellesley married fiancé Alejandro Santo Domingo in Spain over the weekend.

The duo, who were engaged last July, vowed to spend the rest of their lives together in front of 200 guests. The bride wore a cream Emilia Wickstead gown, with off-the-shoulder, dramatic sleeves and an elegant train. The most striking part of the glam look, however, may have been the bride’s shoes. Lady Charlotte stepped onto the aisle in a pair of olive green heels.

The ceremony took place on May 29 at the Church of the Incarnation in Illora, Spain, near Granada. A reception followed at the bride’s family’s nearby country estate.

Guests of honor include King Juan Carlos I, the former King of Spain; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Tatiana Santo Domingo and husband Andrea Casiraghi; and Lauren Santo Domingo, the founder of Moda Operandi. Pop Singer James Blunt also attended the nuptials with his wife Sophia Wellesley, who is Lady Charlotte’s cousin. Also in attendance were Johanna Ortiz, who designed the rehearsal dinner dress, Prince and Princess Philippe Radziwill, the hon. Henry and Mrs. Broughton, Mr. and Mrs. Carlos Davila, Ali Weise and John de Neufville, Chris Brumder, Hayley Bloomingdale, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Acquavella, Mr. and Mrs. James Fowler, the Hon. Sophia Hesketh, David Tollemache, Tabitha Simmons and Robert Mortimer, Sabine Getty, Martha Ward, Jubie Wigan and Caroline Sieber.

Lady Charlotte’s father is the Duke of Wellington, and her mother is Princess Antonia, Duchess of Wellington and a descendant of Queen Victoria.
