Inside the VERY lavish Euro royal wedding in Colombia

It was a lavish affair complete with stylish guests, a chic venue and a real-life Prince Charming.

So it’s of little surprise guests at the nuptials of Prince Josef-Emanuel of Liechtenstein and socialite Claudia Echavarria have been excited to share snaps of the big day online. 

Designers, magazine editors and fashion insiders were among the guests who turned out for the event in Claudia’s hometown of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, on Friday.
