The newlyweds were joined by an array of A-listers who had gathered for the three-day spectacular, including Gordon Ramsay, tennis champ Serena Williams, and actress Eva Longoria.
Others on the guest list included Spice Girls Melanie Brown, and Melanie Chisholm, supermodels Gigi Hadid, and Gisele Bündchen, former footballer Phil Neville, and Brooklyn’s godfather Dave Gardner.

“They both looked stunning, and very much in love.
“Both of their families are very proud of them and delighted to see them so happy.”

Little sister Harper, 10, who was dressed in a white robe with blue frills, was dropped off at the same house by a black Cadillac Escalade at midday.
And brother Cruz, 17, was seen climbing into a red car in the mansion grounds soon after, dressed casually in a blue jumper and jogging bottoms.

Band equipment was also visible, ready for the reception entertainment.
Musicians could be heard rehearsing salsa music. Ahead of the 4.30pm start, hundreds of guests in black tie were seen arriving at the expansive property.
A nervous-looking Brooklyn then made his arrival, flanked by his groomsmen, brothers Romeo, 19, and Cruz, and supported by parents David, 46, and Victoria, 47.
Once the gathered guests were seated, Nicola made her entrance in a gown by Pierpaolo Piccioli at Valentino – one of three made for her for the celebrations.
Another guest said: “Nicola looked absolutely stunning – and Brooklyn was blown away.” Following the ceremony, sources say guests were treated to limitless bottles of $ 350 Bollinger at a champagne reception held in the garden marquees, one of which featured steps down to the ocean.

Following the dinner, guests then partied the night away to a series of musical acts – including Jennifer Lopez’s former husband and Latin star Marc Anthony and DJ Fat Tony. Rapper Snoop Dogg also performed.
The ceremony – which even eclipsed the Beckhams’ 1999 Golden Thrones nuptials – came after a welcome celebration for guests on Friday.
