She later changed into a vibrant purple one-shoulder dress with floral applique at her reception, while David wore a matching suit.

The Beckhams got married in Ireland in 1999

David and Victoria, who are parents to Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz,  and Harper, married on 4 July 1999 following a two-year relationship. 

Now, thoughts have turned to how their eldest son Brooklyn, who acted as the couple's adorable ring bearer, will celebrate his own wedding with his fiancee Nicola Peltz.

It's not known if they will need as many staff as the Beckhams, but the couple spoke of their wedding in detail for the first time while cooking a delicious Valentine's Day meal with Vogue magazine.

Brooklyn said: "Full wedding prep mode and it's a lot of fun. It's strange, because the more wedding meetings that we have, the more real it feels. Like it still kind of feels fake, in a way. I'm excited. I'm wearing a Yarmulke."

"Yes, Jewish wedding," added Nicola.

Explaining their wedding weekend in further detail, Nicola continued: "So, the Friday night, Brooklyn's gonna stay with my dad, my brothers, and then his dad and his brothers and have like a boy slumber party. 

"And I'm going to stay with the girls. So, from the Friday night dinner, we're not going to see each other until we get married in the afternoon. We've been panicking about it, this one night apart."
