David Beckham Gave Brooklyn One Piece Of Advice At Wedding

David Beckham’s eldest son Brooklyn and actor Nicola Peltz’s wedding has gained huge attention on social media, and the newlyweds have recently revealed a memorable piece of advice given in a speech by the father of the groom. 

Connections between the pair were first drawn in October 2019 at a social gathering for Halloween, and the couple got engaged just months later.

At first, they reportedly drew up plans for a wedding in the summer of 2021 when the world was in lockdown, then autumn, and in the end agreed on April 2022, when the ceremony finally happened.

They told Vogue: “We wanted the big wedding as soon as it was possible to do it safely.”

Brooklyn, 23, and Nicola, 27, got hitched in a spectacular beach celebration which cost £2.3 million, which is over 130 times the average financial wedding budget of £17,300.

The three-day long party may have been a step above what most couples opt for, but as per tradition, the pair spent the night before their marriage away from each other. “Brooklyn and I are pretty inseparable, so that was dramatic,” Nicola said.

“The highlight of the whole wedding for me was seeing her for the first time in that dress,” Brooklyn said. “It was the first time ever in my life when I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath.”

Meanwhile, David Beckham apparently 'shed a tear' during his speech at the wedding ceremony, which clearly came from the heart as he looked back on the important moment when his eldest son was born.

But it was the sporting star's one piece of advice in the speech that Brooklyn will never forget.


He said: “The most important thing is to make each other happy. And treat your Mrs like gold.”

Brooklyn was also given a wedding gift from his mother and father worth $500,000: a vintage Jaguar XK120.

Some social media users were horrified at Brooklyn's Miami nuptial ceremony due to its huge cost as the world grapples with conflict, COVID and the cost of living crisis.

At the wedding, however, the groom acknowledged the Ukrainian crisis and encouraged his guests to give their cash to charities which help refugees.
