After a seven-year engagement, the second child of Julio Iglesias and Isabel Preysler, Julio Iglesias Jr. and the model Charisse Verhaert said "I do" to one another at the El Rincon estate.

The wedding was off-limits to the media, and reporters could only watch from the edge of the highway as the cars of some guests arrived at the estate in Aldea del Fresno outside Madrid.

Charisse Verhaert arrived at 3:30 p.m. in a white Mercedes, while her bridegroom, Julio Iglesias Jr., showed up 40 minutes later in a green SUV.

However, neither the singer Julio Iglesias nor Isabel Preysler, parents of the groom, were seen entering by the front door of El Rincon, and of the sisters and brothers only Ana Boyer was observed driving her car up to the estate.

It was known, however, that the eldest of them all, Enrique Iglesias, could not attend because of work commitments.

The wedding capped the seven-year engagement of the 39-year-old singer, model and actor, and the Belgian model, 30, who said "I do" dressed in a romantically styled classic design by Manuel Mota for Pronovias.

The bride and groom chose Ana Boyer and Tamara Falco as bridesmaids, as revealed earlier by the latter who was the wedding planner at El Rincon, an estate owned by her father, Carlos Falco, marquis of Griñon.

The wedding was all Tamara Falco hoped for, having brought together the three men who "have been such a part of the life" of her mother, Isabel Preysler: Julio Iglesias, Carlos Falco and present husband Miguel Boyer. EFE
