Victoria Beckham was unable to attend the wedding of her close friend Geri Halliwell earlier this week, but the fashion designer knew just the way to make it up to her. Victoria, who was away on business, is said to have gifted her former Spice Girl bandmate a very "special" dress from her upcoming collection.

It sounds like Geri, 42, will be able to wear the item on her honeymoon.

She and her new husband Christian Horner are spending the first few days as a married couple in sunny Cannes, France and were spotted touching down in the French Riviera on Saturday.

"Victoria sent Geri a special dress from her own collection," a source told The Sun. "Her new line features abstract hearts, so what better occasion to wear one than on honeymoon?"

"She also sent a touching message of love and support and a giant flower arrangement which was so big a PA was struggling to find space for it," the source added.

On the day of Geri and Christian's romantic village wedding, Victoria, 41, was thousands of miles away in South East Asia attending Singapore Fashion Week.

Her friend's big day was on her mind, however, as she took the time out to post a sweet throwback photo of herself and Geri back in their Spice Girl heyday.

"My beautiful friend @gerihalliwellofficial. Sending u love and happiness. I'm so sad I couldn't be with you on your special day x I love u x," wrote Victoria, alongside the Instagram snap accompanied with a heart emoticon.

David Beckham's wife later followed it up with another photo of the complete band – herself, Geri, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C – and captioned it: "I love u girls x Happy Friday x vb."

Emma, a.k.a. Baby Spice, was the only Spice Girl who was able to attend their friend's nuptials. She was pictured giving the blushing bride an affectionate hug outside St Mary's Church in Bedfordshire, where Geri and Christian said "I do" on Friday.
