Look back at David and Victoria's epic wedding with thrones, tiaras and more

Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz are getting married this week and it remains to be seen how their lavish ceremony measures up to another high-profile wedding.

Back in July 1999, the soon-to-be-groom’s famous parents David and Victoria tied the knot in a stunning £750,000 event – roughly £1.2 million in 2022 – complete with iconic thrones and an epic outfit change.

The Beckhams went for a Robin Hood theme for their fairytale wedding at Luttrellstown Castle just outside Dublin, which dates back to 1794.

The 14-bedroom property is set on 560 acres and comes with its own golf course, while the towering stone wall meant they had plenty of privacy for their special day.

Sticking to the theme, the decor was on point with plenty of green, purple and burgundy, while there were plenty of apples weaved into an ivy arrangement through the banister.

The floral arrangements came from Simon Lycett – who worked on 1994’s Four Weddings and A Funeral – and John Plested, who took charge of the Queen’s ruby wedding anniversary in 1987.

As their son gets ready for his own nuptials, here are the best bits from David and Victoria’s iconic wedding.

A stunning dress, David’s white suit and that purple outfit change

Victoria impressed in a strapless, floor-length satin Vera Wang gown for her special day, and the dress – said to have cost $100,000 – is still in her closet waiting for daughter Harper’s own wedding.

Meanwhile, David went for a white suit and matching cravat, which perfectly fit his 1990s boy band image at the time, while he also debuted some fresh highlights.

Meanwhile, Becks’ then-Manchester United teammates Gary Neville was his best man, and he gave a suitably emotional speech.

He said at one point: ‘He would come into training every day like a little schoolboy. You’d go a long way to find two people more in love.’
