1999 - it was the era of butterfly clips, platform shoes and mood rings. It was also the year a Spice Girl named Victoria Adams married footballer David Beckham and thus Posh and Becks were officially spawned.
Following a romantic courtship, which began in 1997 after they hit it off at a charity football match, the pair tied the knot on July 4, 1999 with one of the most decadent weddings of the decade.
No expense was spared for their big day, which was held at the Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland and speculated to cost around £500,000.
Sitting happily on their golden thrones as man and wife, it was clear from the start Victoria and David Beckham were going to be a force of nature.
16 years later and the genetically blessed duo, who share four beautiful children, have become pop culture icons unto themselves. Despite the very glamorous nature of their existence, at the core of their relationship is pure and simple love.
"I like Victoria for herself... I'd like her if she worked in Tesco," David, who officially retired from football in 2013, once sweetly remarked of his wife to The Guardian.
And the feeling is mutual: "He's got more personality than people think and he's very deep and spiritual," accomplished fashion designer Victoria gushed of her guy.
