It’s almost time for what’s likely to be one of the biggest celebrity events of the year – Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding.
Spice Girl Victoria Beckham’s eldest son prepares to tie the knot in a lavish wedding ceremony to American actress Nicola Peltz.
Brooklyn Beckham, 23, is set to wed Nicola Peltz, 27, latest this month after the aspiring chef popped the question to the billionaire heiress back in 2020.
Big weddings must run in the Beckham family as David and Victoria’s 1999 ceremony was one lavish and extravagant ceremony people still talk about almost 23 years later.
Brooklyn, who attended his parent’s wedding as a newborn, has previously admitted he and his wife-to-be would be “married already” if it wasn’t for Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns, reports The Mirror.
From a star-studded guest list, designer dresses and Nicola’s fathers billionaire estate as a wedding venue – here’s everything we can expect from the couples upcoming nuptials.
Thanks to having one of the world’s most famous couples as parents, Brooklyn’s side of the guestlist is sure to feature some of the entertainment industry’s biggest names.
If the aspiring cook’s showbiz credentials weren’t enough, the fact he is marrying the daughter of a billionaire is also sure to make his wedding one of the most sought-after events of the year.
Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, a long-time family friend, is sure to make an appearance on Brooklyn and Nicola’s special day – with the eldest Beckham child classing 22-year-old Jack Ramsay as one of his best friends.
Mum Victoria’s former Spice Girl bandmates are also expected to nab invites to the lavish do, with actress Eva Longoria and Madonna’s son Rocco Richie also rumored to have made the final guestlist.
One famous face who won’t be there to see Brooklyn become a married man is his godfather, Sir Elton John.
The legendary singer, a close confidant to the Beckham family, is unlikely to be able to attend his godson’s wedding, due to his scheduled tour dates clashing with the big day.
With her future mother-in-law being one of the biggest name’s in fashion, bride-to-be Nicola could have easily turned to designer Victoria to whip her up a wedding dress for her big day.
However, it’s rumored the Transformers actress has opted for Italian house Valentino to design the gown she walks down the aisle in – after reportedly jetting off to Rome earlier this year for some final fittings.
Victoria – who apparently sketched a few potential designs for Nicola’s wedding dress – could still have a say on the fashion choice’s on her son’s big day.
It’s rumored the mum-of-four will have some input when it comes to wardrobe choices during the wedding – apparently designing the dress the bride will wear for the evening celebrations.
breaks from tradition
Both family-focused Brooklyn and Nicola have apparently asked their loved ones to play special roles during their lavish ceremony.
According to The Sun, Brooklyn has asked younger brothers Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 16, to act as his best men, while his future wife has broken tradition – asking her former ice hockey player brother Brad to be her “man of honor” .
“The first time I went to Rome, I brought my mum and my brother Brad, who’s actually my man of honour,” the actress revealed to CR Fashion Handbook.
“It is really a beautiful thing to be apart of and it’s very exciting.”
Brooklyn’s little sister Harper won’t be left out of proceedings later this month.
“Harper is a bridesmaid for both ceremonies, and the boys will be best men as well – but it’s a little complicated,” the source explained to heat magazine last year.
“Nicola also has a few brothers, with a big age range, so it’s a case of trying to make sure that everyone is included, but without going too OTT.”
It’s also thought that Brooklyn’s father, David, will be Master of Ceremonies, and he’s expected to give a short speech.
Brooklyn may have been born in England, and the couple currently resides in Hollywood, but the future Mr and Mrs Beckham are jetting off to Florida to tie the knot.
Why Florida? Well, Nicola’s billionaire father has a pretty stunning estate perfect for a wedding ceremony.
The young couple will be saying ‘I do’ on businessman Nelson Peltz’s impressive 27-bedroom Florida estate – worth an estimated eye-watering $103 million.
The 44,000-sq-ft mansion boasts a swimming pool, sprawling gardens and scenic seaside views – the perfect backdrop for the celebrity wedding of the years.
Guests at the lavish event will have to adhere to some strict rules while attending the wedding in Florida on April 9.
It’s been said that attendees will be instructed not to take any pictures, and use of social media throughout the day is apparently banned.
The orders come as it’s rumored fashion bible Vogue magazine has nabbed exclusive rights to the first pictures of the bride and groom.
Speaking to Vogue previously, Brooklyn and Nicola confirmed they will be having a ‘Jewish wedding’ due to the model’s heritage and religious beliefs.
Brooklyn revealed: “I’m wearing a yarmulke,” with Nicola adding: “Yes, [it’s a] Jewish wedding.”
When it comes to the food and drink served to their guests on their special day, budding chef Brooklyn has been keeping a close eye on things.
The aspiring culinary star admitted he was in “full wedding prep mode”, as he revealed a flavored martini is likely to be their wedding drink of choice.
When it comes to the food, Nicola gave a glimpse of what could be the couple’s wedding cake on her Instagram Stories earlier this year.
“On the way to cake tastings @brooklynbeckham,” the actress told her millions of followers, going on to share snaps of a range of pastries – including a delicious-looking red velvet cake, crowned with decadent frosting and pretty berries.
Brooklyn and Nicola are set to exchange wedding vows on April 9.
