All the details of Martínez-Almeida's proposal to Teresa Urquijo: this Saturday at the bride's estate

José Luis Martínez-Almeida y Teresa Urquijo They already have a date to celebrate the proposal, the previous step that both will have to take to say 'yes, I want' on April 6. The mayor of Madrid, 48, and his girlfriend, 26, made their relationship official last June in Madrid's Plaza de las Ventas, six months after beginning their discreet courtship. After a year of love, more details are now known about the new stage that they will begin together next spring.

The proposal will take place this Saturday at the farm that the Urquijo family owns in Los Molinillos, in Navalagamella, 50 kilometers from the center of Madrid, where the young woman's family historically celebrates great occasions, according to reports this Thursday Vanitatis. In this same place, property of his maternal grandparents, Teresa de Borbón-Dos Sicilias and Íñigo Moreno de Arteaga, Marquises of Laserna, is where the politician and the investment analyst will celebrate their wedding.

Three months before the wedding, the proposal will serve for the bride and groom's families to get to know each other and strengthen ties. The estate has capacity for 600 guests and was chosen by Jaime Urquijo Zobel de Ayala and Alexandra Suárez to celebrate their wedding in October 2019. Almost four years later, the bride's family will meet again in this enclave to accompany the Madrid mayor and his girlfriend.

Among the steps that will be carried out will be the gift exchange. If tradition is followed, everything indicates that the groom will give the bride an engagement ring, and the groom's family will give another piece of jewelry (a bracelet or earrings that she wears on her big day is normal). The bride and her family usually reciprocate with another gift for the groom. In most orders it is usually a watch.

The countdown begins

On April 6, just a few days before the politician turns 49, the religious wedding will be celebrated in the chapel of the estate. Afterwards, the celebration will continue on the El canto de la cruz farm, also owned by the bride's maternal family. It is located in the municipality of Colmenar Viejo, 30 minutes from Plaza Castilla, in Madrid, and belongs to the young woman's paternal grandmother, Carmen Fernández de Araoz, known as Piru Urquijo.

Teresa Urquijo came into her future husband's life when he had lost hope in love. He himself told it in a romantic post on Instagram. “Once they asked me about sentimental questions. I answered that neither rush nor resign, it is obvious that I have not rushed but I was almost resigned. Until she appeared. And Teresa has said yes to me,” she wrote.

The PP politician declared himself very happy a few weeks ago about his wedding, although the preparations force him to be patient. “It is a very important day and I think it is a long-awaited day, but since I have talked about derbies, we are going game by game. There are three months left, there is a lot to do,” he explained. And he added: “The tables are a complicated and difficult situation. but I hope that people put above the good news that a wedding is.

The mayor of Madrid is aware of the interest that this wedding arouses among citizens and the press: “Things are like that, one is a public figure, in my case it is an honor, not a burden, to be mayor of Madrid.” And he noted: “I am tremendously respectful, shy as you said, it is difficult for me to talk about these issues but I appreciate the congratulations, the affection I receive from people on the street but this does not deter me, here we have to work every day.” And he also joked: “I will have to give up some vices in my 48 years of life, such as that empty refrigerator, I will have to get going”.
