Fairly or not, he has been labelled as the ultimate product of nepotism. But Brooklyn Beckham has finally outshone his parents by selling his wedding to Vogue magazine.
As the 23-year-old last night married American heiress Nicola Peltz in front of 300 guests, The Mail on Sunday can reveal the couple will appear on the cover of the fashion bible – eclipsing the deal his parents sealed with downmarket OK! magazine for their nuptials in 1999.
There will be further photographs of Brooklyn and Nicola, 27, and their A-list guests across several pages inside the publication, thought to be the June edition.
There is also speculation the wedding will appear in both the US and UK versions, which are edited by David and Victoria’s friends Anna Wintour and Edward Enninful.
A small selection of photos will go up on their social media today, along with some video footage.

Held over three days, Brooklyn and Nicola Peltz’s wedding started with a dinner Friday and will finish with a lavish lunch on Sunday

Perhaps predictably, the Vogue deal meant that security was tight for the opulent beachside nuptials, which were held at the Palm Beach estate of Nicola’s billionaire investor father, Nelson Peltz, in Florida.
Not satisfied with local police, or the swarms of security guards dressed in black suits, the young Beckhams also recruited a pack of German shepherd dogs.
Car windows were blacked out to avoid paparazzi camera lenses as friends and family arrived.
Guests included tennis superstar Serena Williams, actress Eva Longoria, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana, singer Marc Anthony – who was expected to perform – and sports agent David Gardner, Brooklyn’s godfather.

Madonna’s son Rocco Ritchie, a childhood friend of Brooklyn’s, was also expected to attend, as was model Gigi Hadid, a childhood friend of Nicola.
The Beckham clan was on parade, with Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17, sharing best-man duties and ten-year-old Harper as a flower girl.
Both sets of Brooklyn’s grandparents were also there, as was Victoria’s sister Louise Adams and her daughters Libby and Tallulah. Veuve Clicquot was the champagne of choice for guests, with floral decorations featuring white orchids, green cymbidiums and white hydrangeas.
Nicola wore a gown by Italian designer Valentino which she had custom-made during several visits to the label’s headquarters in Milan. Brooklyn’s outfit was chosen with the help of his father.

Before the big day, David and Victoria had told friends of their excitement and how it would be the proudest day of their lives so far.
One told the MoS: ‘The euphoria in the Beckham household has been massive for some months. Victoria keeps saying she doesn’t think she will be able to stop herself crying.’ Such joy could mean only one thing – a series of celebrations.
On Friday night, there was a barbecue party in the Peltz’s secondary property, which resembles a French chateau. The bride and groom-to-be were dressed in matching white trouser suits, which Brooklyn teamed with an open shirt and trainers while Nicola opted for heels and flares.
They posed for the official photographers before joining their guests for drinks and dancing. At 9pm speeches began, with one of Nicola’s brothers issuing a spot of advice to Brooklyn, telling him: ‘Happy wife, happy life.’ One of Brooklyn’s brothers spoke next, saying: ‘I’m so proud of the man he’s become.’
Last came former England captain David, 46, who spoke for around five minutes and finished by telling Miss Peltz: ‘We love you so much. We are excited that you’ll be part of the family. You’re an amazing person.’
