Victoria Beckham turned the heads of her 33 million Instagram followers this week when she shared an array of throwback photos to celebrate her 25th wedding anniversary with her former England football star husband David.

One that caught the eye of her fans who are invested in the former Spice Girl's interior design choices will be an unexpected snap of the former Manchester United player in his modest kitchen where he can be seen writing his wedding vows.

The then-24-year-old footballer was seen with blonde streaky hair in a pair of white shorts at the kitchen table which had been topped with a pink tablecloth and a glass overlayer.

Behind him, the space featured white cabinetry, granite worksurfaces, and classic 90s printed tiles.

Elsewhere in the carousel, the fashion designer shared an array of unearthed snaps from the lead-up to their special day. The pair were seen testing out the large red velvet-adorned thrones that they sat upon during their wedding reception.

Victoria looked effortlessly cool in mid-wash jeans with a white baby tee and trainers, while her husband-to-be looked chilled back in dark grey jeans and a white tee with a baseball cap.

The mother-of-four also showed off her wedding cake which was a three-tiered number featuring leaves and apples made from fondant with two nude figurine toppers.

The power couple tied the knot in 1999 at Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin. The castle dates back to the 15th century and features 20 bedrooms and a ballroom, set upon a private 560-acre estate.

The bride wore two gowns - one strapless corseted satin number from Vera Wang and a second purple slinky garment with a thigh-split and corsage detailing from Antonio Berardi.

Among the couple's family was an array of high-profile guests including Victoria's Spice Girls bandmates Emma Bunton, Mel B, Mel C, and Geri Halliwell-Horner, as well as David’s Manchester United teammates - Gary Neville, Dwight Yorke, and Ryan Giggs.

The kitchen which provided the backdrop for David's vow-writing sessions is a far cry from his current home portfolio. The doting dad and his 90s icon wife not only own a luxe £31 million townhouse in Holland Park, but a deluxe £6 million farmhouse in the Cotswolds.
