Over the weekend, Marta Ortega married Carlos Torretta at her family's home in Galicia, Spain, in one of the country's biggest weddings of the year. The truly over-the-top nuptials included four outfit changes by the bride and a reception performance by none other than Chris Martin. But would you expect anything less when the bride is the daughter of Amancio Ortega, the billionaire owner of Inditex, the parent company of Zara?

For the at-home ceremony, the fashion-forward bride—Ortega works as the senior creative consultant at Zara Women—wore a custom Valentino gown designed by the brand’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli. “#MartaOrtega, youngest daughter of the founder of Inditex, Amancio Ortega, wore a #ValentinoHauteCouture floor length dress in a pale pink hue designed for her by Creative Director @pppiccioli during her wedding with #CarlosTorretta, on Friday November 16th 2018,” the fashion house wrote on Instagram.

The pink-hued gown featured a high neckline, pleated bodice, and column skirt, and Ortega completed the dress with a flower crown, veil, and bouquet of wildflowers. And this was just her first look! Hello! Magazine reports that the ceremony was followed by several celebrations and even more wedding looks from the heiress.

Following the ceremony, Ortega donned a black tuxedo–inspired suit for a post-wedding cocktail party on Friday evening at the Royal Yacht Club in A Coruña.

The following day, the reception took place at the Casas Novas Horseriding Center with reportedly 400 guests—and two more wedding looks from Ortega. First, she wowed in a shimmering backless dress, seen on Pierpaolo Piccioli's Instagram, which she wore for her first dance with her husband, to "Yellow" by Coldplay performed by none other than Chris Martin himself. Norah Jones and Jamie Cullum were among the other musical guests, and other celebrities—including model Eugenia Silva; heiress and equestrian Athina Onassis; and the daughter of Bruce Springsteen, Jessica Springsteen—also made the guest list.

Later in the evening, Ortega changed into her fourth and final look: A frothy pink gown she wore to dance into the early morning.
