David and Victoria Beckham have renewed their vows in a secret ceremony at their home, nearly 20 years since they met.
They’re one of the most famous couples in the world, and it looks as though they’re going to stay that way after David Beckham revealed that the couple recently renewed their wedding vows.
Appearing on iconic radio show Desert Island Discs as a special guest for the 75th anniversary, David gave an exclusive insight into his marriage, admitting that the pair chose a much quieter affair than their first ceremony this time around.
Although their first wedding was infamous for its glitz and glamour, it sounds like times and tastes have changed, with David describing their second ceremony as ‘a lot more private’.
‘We did throw a lot at [the wedding]. We have renewed our vows since then and it was a lot more private, there was about six people there in our house.’
The power couple famously wed in an Irish castle back in 1999, choosing a lavish theme complete with crowns and thrones for their wedding photos.
Reflecting on some of his outfit choices for his wedding to Victoria, David couldn’t help but cringe, admitting that his outlandish style was something he now regrets.
‘That was pretty bold. Victoria’s was pretty nice. Mine, I’m like what was I thinking? I even had a top hat in purple. What was I thinking?’
But despite there being some dodgy sartorial choices, David opened up about what really matters in a marriage and keeping a relationship strong. He credited the couple’s relationship success to being brought up with ‘values’ and working through issues.
‘We’ve got strong parents. We were brought up with the right values.
‘Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times but it’s about working through it.’
‘Whenever we’ve come up against tough times we know each other better than anyone knows us, so we talk.’
