Marta Ortega married Carlos Torretta in an intimate Spanish ceremony on Friday, followed by two lavish parties to continue the celebrations with family and friends. The 34-year-old, whose father is billionaire Zara founder Amancio Ortega - started the day by wearing a gorgeous high-neck Valentino gown, before changing another three times throughout the day's events. The bride and groom invited an array of fabulous guests to join them at the Royal Yacht Club in A Coruna to kick things off. Later, they headed to another location in Galicia, northwestern Spain, where Norah Jones, Jamie Cullum and Coldplay's Chris Martin entertained guests. The newlyweds joined Chris on stage as he played Yellow for their first dance. How perfect?

Marta's second outfit of the day

Marta changed out of her wedding dress and into a sleek, black tuxedo-inspired cropped trouser suit, teamed with a sheer black blouse and black stilettos. The mum-of-one and her new husband then drove to their wedding banquet held at the Casas Novas Horse-riding Center in A Coruna, where she dressed in a cream coat. Marta then showed off her final look of the night, a dazzling gold, backless dress which sparkled in the moonlight at the outdoors banquet as she danced and greeted guests. Everybody then tucked into the humongous white cake with golden decoration.
