Posh and Becks previously laughed at their choice to go purple in last year's Netflix documentary Beckham.

David shared clips from his big day in the docu-series, laughing at his decision to make their guests wear black and white while he and Victoria donned the garish purple ensembles.

As his former teammate Gary Neville described the wedding as 'a spectacle', David mused: 'I try to think back to when I decided to wear a purple suit and I don't know when that happened...

'I think I just took Victoria's lead on it but what were we thinking?!'

Having no regrets on her end, Victoria quipped: 'It was fun!

She did confess 'I don't know where the thrones came from', while referring to the gold chairs she and David posed on.

David also previously joked about the look during a 2017 appearance on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs: 'I even had a top hat in purple, what was I thinking? I looked like the guys out of Dumb and Dumber.'

In the comments section on Wednesday's post David's mother Sandra gushed: '25yrs and you both still look amazing, special memories'.

Victoria wore a more reserved champagne Vera Wang gown for the ceremony, while the groom opted for a white suit.

During a 2021 appearance on Jimmy Fallon she said of the outfit change:'It just seemed like a really good idea at the time, you know?

'It really did. I think it was a naiveté then, we didn't know about fashion.

Before adding: 'We were just having fun with it, which, to be honest with you, is kind of the way it should be.'

Sparing no expense for the big day back, the power couple hired Bentley's Entertainments, organisers of Elton John's birthday as well as Princess Anne's 40th, to mastermind the highly-publicised showbiz event.

Their picturesque Irish venue sat on 560 acres and dated back to the 18th century, with organsier Peregrine Armstrong-Jones telling OK! how 'Victoria wanted somewhere really private and unique, somewhere leafy and green'.

The Beckhams' celeb pals, including Gordon Ramsay and Gary Neville, rushed to congratulate them

And not only did the couple once again don their matching purple ensembles from the reception but also sat on their infamous gold thrones (pictured in 1999)

She had hired Simon Lycett, who worked on the 90s rom-com Four Weddings And A Funeral, to set up the floral arrangements - complete with fresh apples which had been pierced and dotted around the castle in order to discharge the scent of fruit.

With David rocking up in a £230,000 Bentley Azure wearing a cream suit designed by Timothy Everett, Victoria sported a Vera Wang dress as she rode in style in a Bentley Arnage.

She commanded attention in a diamond-and-gold crown, which was custom-built by Slim Barrett who had previously crafted accessories for Princess Diana.

Despite the nuptials being covered as part of a lucrative magazine deal, Victoria is adamant the wedding wasn't as fancy as it appeared.

Saying in 2022 of her big day: 'I think that the media glamorised the wedding much more than it actually was ... [It was] actually much more intimate than it looked.'

She added: 'I love to have fun. I work very very hard. I take what I do very seriously. I want to be a great wife, a really great mum, but I wanna have fun as well. Sometimes my tongue-in-cheek sense of humour does tend to get me in trouble, but the wedding wasn't as huge as everybody made it out [to be].'

Just over a year after meeting, in January 1998, the couple, now affectionately dubbed Posh and Becks, ended weeks of speculation over whether they'd taken their romance to the next level, when they announced that they were engaged to marry.

Speaking about the proposal, Victoria said at the time: 'We'd already looked at a few rings but I didn't know which one he had chosen. I'd told him what my dream ring would be. He remembered and had it specially made for me'.

The proposal came when they checked into a hotel after a Manchester United game, after which Victoria was presented with 30 roses before being escorted to their room which was packed with £200 worth of red and yellow lillies.

The duo slipped into bath robes, ordered dinner and champagne and David popped the question much to Victoria's utter delight.

In the book Arise Sir David Beckham: Footballer, Celebrity, Legend, it was reported Victoria said: 'We were sitting there in our dressing gowns when David pulled out the ring, got down on one knee and said, 'Will you marry me, Victoria?''

David meanwhile said: ''I wasn't at all nervous about getting engaged, we'd decided a while ago we would make it official this weekend. I got the ring and was really looking forward to it. But when the moment came there were a few butterflies.'

The couple swiftly called a press conference where Victoria flashed her bling and told the gathered media at Rookery Hall hotel in Nantwich.: 'I am the happiest girl on the world today. I'm with the man I know I'm going to grow old and wrinkly with.'
