16 Years Strong: Victoria and David Beckham’s Wedding Photo Throwback Celebrating Their Anniversary

In the wake of unconscionable amounts of “conscious uncoupling” in Hollywood, it helps to remember that Victoria and David Beckham still exist.

1997: Posh Spice meets her soccer stud at a charity game. Beckham requests a one-on-one match with the pop star who later admits, “I didn’t really know who he was. I was never into football.”

Flash ahead to a year later. “Posh and Becks” announce their engagement and are married on July 4, 1999 in an Irish castle by the Bishop of Cork, attended by their four-month-old son, Brooklyn.
