In our milestone year to celebrate HELLO!'s 30th birthday, we're revisiting a selection of our best-loved covers. This week we go back to February 2006, when our exclusive wedding picture showed rapper Eminem and his bride Kim tying the knot for the second time around. Love was in the air in February 2010, too, when our world exclusive took you inside David and Victoria Beckham's sumptuous country mansion for the lavish nuptials of Victoria's younger sister, Louise.
Determined to ensure that Louise and her partner, broker Darren Flood, enjoyed the wedding of their dreams, football hero David and Victoria opened up the grounds of their magnificent £10million Hertfordshire estate, Rowneybury House (aka Beckingham Palace) for a moving ceremony in their private chapel.

This was followed by a sumptuous reception, at which family and friends – including the Beckhams' three boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, who were all pageboys – danced the night away. The couple's daughter Harper was born the following year.
Fashion icon Victoria, who was Louise's maid of honour, took her duties before the wedding seriously by helping the pretty bride-to-be to make one of the most important decisions of all – choosing the perfect wedding gown. With the girls' mum Jackie also on hand to advise, Louise says the minute she slipped into the exquisite confection of Vera Wang silk, she knew she'd found The One.

"I'd tried on so many dresses before and just hadn't felt that any of them were right," Louise recalled. "But then we went into Selfridges and, as luck would have it, it was the day Vera Wang's new collection came out."
Victoria, who looked as elegant as ever on the day, in a long black column dress from her own collection, said: "Darren is a wonderful, kind and loving man. "The wedding was a beautiful, intimate family occasion and I am delighted for the two of them."
