HOLLYWOOD favourite Audrey Hepburn’s son Sean is in trouble after throwing an ‘illegal’ wedding at the Alhambra Palace.

BANNED: Weddings at the Alhambra

The son of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star paid €3,500 to rent out the Palacio de Carlos V for a concert in August last year.

However he now finds himself in trouble after the Alhambra’s board accused him of using the Granada venue to hold a wedding ceremony – an event banned at the historic site.

A security report by Alhambra officials claims that Hepburn and his partner Karin Hofer conducted an ‘unexpected wedding ceremony’ in the middle of the concert.

The report added that the Lord Mayor of Granada, along with a Granada councillor, officiated the service.

However, the town hall has defended the pair, saying that the concert was held after an official ceremony elsewhere.

The town hall added that the mayor never officiated the marriage, despite the couple being dressed for a wedding, signing documents at the palace and being directed by the Lord Mayor throughout the day.
