Wedding of Infanta Cristina of Spain

Happy 20th Anniversary to Infanta Cristina of Spain and Iñaki Urdangarin, who got married on this day in 1997 in Barcelona. The couple have four children and have remained married despite being on trial after a corruption case, which resulted in the Infanta being acquitted and her husband charged to six years of imprisonment. In honour of their anniversary, we are taking a look at their wedding-

Iñaki Urdangarin wore Morning Dress. Infanta Cristina wore a custom Lorenzo Caprile gown, made of silk specially made in Valencia, with an heirloom lace veil, the Spanish Floral Tiara, and the earrings from the Joyas de Pasar, a special treat as those can only be worn by the Queen of Spain.
