Beckham has described Peltz as his “soulmate” ahead of their lavish wedding.

Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz have both said “I do” in a lavish, star-studded wedding in Palm Beach, Florida.

The pair married on Saturday 9 April with dozens of celebrity friends and family witnessing their nuptials.

The 23-year-old son of footballer David Beckham and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham popped the question to the 27-year-old heiress and actor Peltz in 2020 after nine months of dating.

Their wedding, which had been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is reportedly thought to have cost the families over £3 million and included a Valentino wedding dress for the bride and a detailed prenuptial agreement. Here’s everything you need to know.

How did they meet?

The pair met in 2017 but didn’t start dating until two years later after seeing each other at a Halloween party. Previously, Beckham has dated actor Chloë Grace Moretz and Peltz was in a relationship with model Anwar Hadid, brother of Bella and Gigi Hadid.

After they began dating in 2019, the couple quarantined together over the pandemic and they announced their engagement on Instagram on 11 July, 2020.

In his post, Beckham wrote: “I am the luckiest man in the world. I promise to be the best husband and the best daddy one day and in her post, Peltz said: “I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life by your side. Your love is the most precious gift.”

How did he propose?

The proposal took place at Peltz’s home in New York, surrounded by candles, flowers and her entire family of seven siblings and her parents, American billionaire and businessman, Nelson Peltz, and former model Claudia Heffner.

Her diamond engagement ring is thought to have cost an eye-watering £350,000, and Beckham has also confessed his love for his fiancé through a number of tattoos such as one of her eyes.

The pair described themselves as “inseparable” since connecting at a party in 2019.

Where was the wedding?

The wedding took place at the Peltz’s oceanfront family mansion in Palm Beach Florida, which is reportedly worth £76 million and is 44,000 square feet in size.

Who was there?

The celebrity-filled guest list included Spice Girl’s Mel B and Mel C, chef Gordon Ramsay, supermodel Gigi Hadid and socialite Nicole Richie as well as both of their famous families.

Elton John, godfather to Brooklyn, did not attend the ceremony to due scheduling conflicts with his US tour. Rapper, Snoop Dogg, previously said he would perform at some point during the multi-day celebrations.

What did Peltz wear?

Despite speculation that Victoria Beckham would design the dress, the bride-to-be wore a gown designed by Valentino, overseen by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli.

“It was the ultimate couture experience,” Peltz told British Vogue. “The simplicity of it was magnificent, We didn’t have to overly detail the dress to accomplish the magnitude of it, so we ended up eliminating the embroidery.”

Peltz travelled to Rome, Italy to be involved in the designing process. In an interview with CR Fashion Book, she said: “The creative process has been fun, like finding the perfect fit and fabric.” The dress is thought to cost in the excess of £100,000.

Peltz took inspiration from nineties supermodel Claudia Schiffer for her hair: “I always thought I wanted my hair half up, half down, but we’re going for long bangs with loose, natural hair,” she said of the styling decision.

Did they sign a prenup?

The couple reportedly signed a lengthy prenup in the week before the wedding, intended to protect the fortunes of both families. The Beckhams are thought to be worth at least £380 million and Peltz’s father Nelson Peltz is worth an estimated £1.3 billion.

A source told the Daily Mail: “Understandably, Nicola and Brooklyn want the entire day to be perfect and their attention to detail is quite astonishing... Money is obviously no object, but nonetheless they want the day to be a celebration of love, not wealth.”

What was the wedding like?

Peltz was accompanied by her father down the aisle, to a live rendtion of “Songbird” from British artist Sekou and a string orchestra.

According to Vogue, Harper Beckham was among the flower girls, and the bridesmaid gowns were designed by Joel Diaz.

Following the ceremony, there was a reception with a jazz quartet which was followed by a black-tie dinner.

David Beckham was among the speech-givers, as was Brooklyn’s brother Romeo and Cruz who served as his joint best men.

Brooklyn and Peltz’ first dance was to “Only Fools Rush In”, performed by South African artist Lloyiso.
