Not only that, Isabelle’s father, Philippe, was married to Princess Caroline of Monaco. The relationship lasted just two years, and according to rumors, it was dissolved due to infidelity scandals on his part. This is how he earned the fame of playboy. He remade his story with the Danish model Nina Wendelboe-Larsen, The fruit of that relationship was born Isabelle.

There was a change for the party. The bride opted for a more relaxed look that included a crop top with a neckline and elbow-length sleeves accompanied by a long skirt with ruffles that gave her movement.

The great European banquet was commanded by chef mario sandoval, winner of two Michelin Stars, who devised a cocktail of special bites then a first course, meat and dessert. The specialist fulfilled all the whims of the bride and groom. “We are capable of fulfilling dreams and creating unique experiences that remain in the memory forever. Our proposals have a common thread, a narrative that tells us about Spanish cuisine, but also about its lands and its people”.

There are still no details of where the honeymoon will be, nor do they intend to comment on it. They dream of keeping tradition and customs away from the press… as they have tried to do until today.
