"It's like it was yesterday." Victoria and David Beckham showed what they looked like at the beginning of their relationship. Photo
English ex-footballer David Beckham married singer and fashion designer Victoria on July 4, 1999. The celebration took place at Luttrellstone Castle in Dublin. As noted by the athlete, he was ready to take his beloved as a wife after the first date, but waited until a year later he proposed to her. In honor of their 24th wedding anniversary, the star couple showed what they looked like at the beginning of their romance.
They posted rare archival photos to Instagram. In one shot, we see David, 22, and Victoria, 23, posing by their car in the small Italian town of Portofino. Another shows the sweethearts embracing while wearing similar sports outfits (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).
"On this day of July 04, 1999. 24 years on the bill. To the best wife, mom, and co-star (most of the time). Happy anniversary, love you very much," Beckham congratulated his companion.
Former English soccer club Manchester United midfielder David Beckham saw the love of his life for the first time in the music video for the song Say You Will Be There by the Spice Girls. He met Victoria at an after-match party and approached her to meet her. The girl wrote her phone number on a sporting event ticket, which her husband still keeps to this day.
The couple had a lavish wedding for which the singer chose a $40,000 Vera Wang dress. The outfit is still considered one of the most expensive wedding bows in history. The couple built their 97,000-square-foot "family nest" called the Beckham Palace. It was sold in 2016.
