Brooklyn Beckham’s epic wedding to Nicola Peltz a lavish, celebrity-studded affair

From the idyllic beachside setting to the mega-marquees, multitudinous celebrities and rivers of champagne – this was the wedding which had everything, for the people who have everything.

A celebration of young love on an epic scale, the bride – an actress and model who is the daughter of a billionaire – fulfilled her every fashion fantasy in a dreamy cloud of a bespoke Valentino gown with cap sleeves, long white gloves and a full veil of embroidered lace.

Nicola Peltz, 27, and groom Brooklyn Beckham, 23, said their vows at 6pm on Saturday in Palm Beach, Florida.

There were two ceremonies – one Jewish and one Catholic – to reflect the faiths of her parents.

The rabbi conducting the first ceremony caused consternation and mirth by repeatedly accidentally calling Brooklyn “David” while they said their vows.

I’m told Brooklyn, who bears accusations of nepotism with good grace, found it funny that even at this point he was being overshadowed by his more famous parent.

Apparently the rabbi excused himself by explaining that he is a football fan. Brooklyn’s new father-in-law Nelson Peltz, 79, a billionaire corporate raider who is one of the wealthiest men in America, footed the bill.

Well placed sources suggested yesterday the final total could have been closer to AUD $ 26million than the $ 5million which has been reported, making it one of the most expensive weddings ever – and sparking a backlash over such a show of excess at a time of hardship and war.

With festivities over three days, around 500 guests, and fortunes spent on flowers and clothes, the event may have quite comfortably exceeded the benchmark set by Formula One heiress Petra Ecclestone in 2011.

She spent “over AUD $ 20million” according to her father Bernie when she married bullion dealer James Stunt in Italy.

The Beckhams did contribute their bit – David and Victoria are thought to have paid for the services of DJ Fat Tony, who flew out from London to do a set.

Their friend Marc Anthony, formerly married to Jennifer Lopez, is understood to have performed gratis as a favor too. The couple’s first dance was to Can’t Help Falling In Love With You.

Guests – who had to give up their mobile phones to maintain a Vogue magazine exclusive – report that both shed tears of joyful emotion. Not that they are shy of attention.

Pictures will be released online by the magazine in due course, and video footage – and the July cover of Vogue – will be of the pair too.
