With the eyes of millions across Spain on them, Tamara and Íñigo enjoyed a weekend long celebration starting with a religious ceremony followed by a party and next-day brunch.

The couple met in 2020 at the party of a mutual friend Luis Bergel, they often share pictures of their lavish trips together as well as their idyllic home life going to many society parties through Spain.

Recently the couple have ventured to Paris, Indonesia and Prague, with many loved up displays of affection online each time they travel.

Despite the lavish celebrations, it hasn’t been a smooth-sailing route to the altar for the bride.

Last year, Tamara discovered Íñigo’s infidelities after a clip of him apparently kissing another woman at the Burning Man festival in the US this summer went viral just 24 hours after their engagement announcement.

Following the public scandal, Tamara announced her split from her investor fiancé, deleted her engagement post on Instagram.

However, the pair have since patched things up and have been posting loved-up selfies on each other’s social media feeds again. 

And viewing the nuptials, you would never know the couple struggled.

They began with an religious wedding began lead by Tamara’s priest Father Cruz, followed by a live music and a live cooking show in the gardens, fittingly as Tamara is a keen cook that recently completed training at Le Cordon Bleu. 

Eneko Atxa, a three Michelin starred chef, lead the cooking show, with the guests toasting with Moet & Chandon champagne.

After the dinner, the couple enjoyed their first dance to Nat King Cole’s L-O-V-E, before the party got underway shortly after midnight. 

Tamara looked stunning in a classic silky white gown with her hair tied back and veil, meanwhile Íñigo opted for a charcoal suit and blue tie.

The next day, the wedding party met again for brunch with Tamara opting for a £1011 dress from Johanna Ortiz.

While many of the bride’s family were in attendance, her most famous sibling Enrique did not go.

Sharing his joy at being married, Íñigo wrote on Instagram:  ‘Today starts our journey together and I couldn’t be happier to have each other to face any of life’s obstacles with.

‘There is no better team, together we complete and achieve the balance that alone we could never achieve.

‘Thank you for so much and for what’s to come. I love you Tamara Falco’.

‘I am very happy, that is what it sums up… Before I met you, I felt complete and happy, but it was when we crossed paths and that my life took a turn for the better, totally unexpected,’ she said in the caption.

She also added a biblical quote in reference to her religious beliefs, writing: ‘As Saint Paul also says, in his letter to the Corinthians: in the end, in life the only thing that matters is love.’

‘And I write LOVE in capital letters because he deserves it and that happiness that I describe is the result of that respect, affection and admiration that we have for each other and that we have shared in these two years of dating,’ she added.

She went on to say: ‘A union that we hope God blesses with his light and that although it is not without its cross, it is built on the trust and affection that we profess for each other.’

Tamara concluded that she felt like ‘the luckiest woman on the planet’ and she wanted to thank her partner for taking this next step with her.

‘Thank you, for proposing to be your partner for life. I feel like the luckiest woman on the planet and the yes I gave you, I repeat it and I leave it in writing so that you will never forget it,’ she wrote. 

Íñigo shared Tamara’s post on his stories, with the caption: ‘My love, thanks to you for making me the luckiest man to have as a life partner the purest, funniest and most loving person on the planet! Love you.’

However, 24 hours later, and it’s likely neither were feeling very fortunate – as a video of Íñigo apparently kissing another woman at the Burning Man festival in the US was made public, according to local reports.

At first, Íñigo, who appeared at a wedding with Tamara on the Friday after their engagement announcement, told cameras that the footage was from the 2019 festival – before his relationship with the aristocrat.

He reportedly said he was ‘very happy’, adding it was ‘a pity that there are always people who want to destroy our relationship’.

The investor also said ‘Burning Man outfits are repeated year after year’ following suggestions that the clothes he was wearing and the music that was playing in the footage pointed it to being the 2022 edition of the festival.

However, by Sunday, the businessman publicly admitted his infidelity by issuing a statement on his Instagram stories.

He wrote: ‘In the videos broadcast I appear in an unacceptable attitude, for which I am absolutely sorry and devastated for it. I apologise for not being honest and I apologise to Tamara and her family publicly.’

‘I am completely in love with Tamara and she is the woman of my life, so it hurts me enormously to have hurt her,’ he continued.

Tamara – whose mother is the Spanish-Filipina socialite Isabel Preysler, considered the most fashionable woman in Spain and also parent to Enrique Iglesias – this week appeared in public for the first time since the scandal. 

She told local reporters in Madrid: ‘I decided to bet on my boyfriend… ex-boyfriend until I saw that it was true,’ adding that she is still ‘in a state of shock’.

But MasterChef Celebrity winner Tamara, who stepped out for an event at the city’s theatre, insisted that she sees any reconciliation with her ex partner as ‘impossible’.

‘I think everything happens for a reason and I want to apologize and I want to thank you for the investigative work you have done because otherwise I would never have found out,’ she added to Save Me.

‘It is a very complicated situation, but I am very grateful. I have the feeling that when I saw the second video that everything changed and the truth is that, well, imagine for me that marriage is a promise of eternal love.’

Tamara has never been one to chase the limelight, according to The New York Post. She tried to escape the spotlight by travelling to America in her teenage years for school, and later to a nunnery in her late 20s.

‘I went to a couple of convents and spoke with the sisters there, but I didn’t feel it was my place,’ the socialite, who attended high school in Western Massachusetts and later studied communications at Lake Forest College in Illinois, recalled.

Instead she has mostly now embraced fame to launch several projects, including designing clothes, publishing a cookbook and opening a restaurant at the castle she inherited from her father, who died in 2020.

‘[My mother] was able to teach all her kids to be aware, to always to have good friends, to handle [fame],’ she revealed.

Tamara also spoke of her reality TV show on Netflix, adding that for her, it’s only important that she and her loved ones are pleased with the programme.

‘That’s something I learned from my brother [singer Enrique Iglesias], who obviously has been super exposed,’ she said. ‘He said, “Why bother about what other people think? Because if you do, you become a little bit nuts.”‘
