Marta Ortega, heiress to Amancio Ortega's impressive Inditex 'empire', will be marrying Asturian-born horseman Sergio Álvarez Moya, currently Spain's number one showjumper, in her family's manor house in Anceis (A Coruña).
The couple will be throwing a party or all the wedding guests tonight at the Hesperia Finisterre hotel in A Coruña as a precursor to the main event tomorrow.
A huge marquee has been erected in the grounds and dozens of people have been working for weeks on the wedding preparations inside the manor house, where Amancio Ortega, the richest man in Spain and the 7th richest in the world, also married his second wife, Flora Pérez Marcote, Marta's mother, in 2001.
The couple met at an equestrian event three years ago and have decided to tie the knot in a discreet, intimate and family-orientated ceremony, releasing few details about the event, which members of the press are already describing as "the wedding of the year".
It is known that top Galician chef, Marcelo Tejedor, from the Michelin starred 'Casa Marcelo' in Santiago de Compostela, is in charge of the menu, which will be a combination of traditional Galician food and avant-garde recipes.
Asturian chef Nacho Manzano, who recently won a second Michelin star for his restaurant 'Casa Marcial', is also involved in the wedding breakfast.
28-year-old, Marta Ortega has a degree in Economics and began working at the Inditex headquarters in Arteixo (A Coruña) two years ago. She is being groomed to take over the reins of the world's biggest fashion group, with over five thousand stores worldwide and almost a hundred companies dealing with activities related to textile design, production and distribution. Marta began her training working as a shoop assistant in one of the Zara stores in London, before moving to the company's textile distribution offices in Paris and then Asia.
