And while it provided a sizeable platform for father-of-the-groom David to promote one of his post-football investments – which saw him behind the wheel of an electrified and re-engineered $500,000 1954 Jaguar XK140 – his own father Ted and his wife Hilary Meredith were spotted sticking to traditional and less costly modes of transport.
After the family relished a post-wedding brunch at one of the properties on the Peltz family compound in Palm Beach, Florida, Ted, 74, was pictured waited patiently outside the front door for an Uber.
Did they run out of cars? David Beckham took the wheel of a $500,000 1954 Jaguar while the grandparents (David’s dad Ted and his wife Hilary Meredith pictured) were spotted waiting for an Uber after Brooklyn and Nicola’s post-wedding brunch in Palm Beach over the weekend
Wearing a white shirt and sporting a tattoo on his left arm, Ted was smiling and laughing alongside his lawyer wife, who was sporting a white top with narrow straps and fringed with bobbles.
The former Manchester United and England midfielder used his eldest son’s nuptials as an opportunity to give car restoration company Lunaz – with whom he holds a 10 percent stake – a valuable assist by using one of their classic vehicles on the day.

Lavish: The vintage car – later handed to Brooklyn and Nicola as they ventured out for a lavish brunch – was the product of thousands of hours of work from the company’s 120 strong team of craftspeople
The retired footballer was joined by fashion designer and former Spice Girl wife Victoria, 47, in the vintage Jaguar, with both also seen occupying the same $500,000 (£383,502) classic car ahead of their attendance at the marriage ceremony.
Business savvy Beckham is an investor of UK based restoration company Lunaz, having taken a 10 percent stake in the company in June 2021.
The vintage car – later handed to Brooklyn and Nicola as they ventured out for a lavish brunch – was the product of thousands of hours of work from the company’s 120 strong team of craftspeople, designers and Electric Vehicle (EV) technicians and was built entirely in-house at the home of Lunaz in Silverstone, England.
The sustainable trend sees Lunaz tear out engines which pollute our atmosphere and replace them with zero exhaust emissions batteries and electric motors.
Lavish: David was also seen talking to his son Cruz from his MC20 Mazeratti

David Lorenz, Founder & CEO of Lunaz said: ‘In creating this beautiful, electrified Jaguar XK140, we are honoured to bridge the gap between David Beckham’s professional life, where he is an investor in Lunaz and his family life.
‘This remarkable car is the perfect gift to his son Brooklyn and daughter-in-law, Nicola on their wedding day. In every respect, this extraordinary electric classic car by Lunaz symbolises a bright, positive future.’
Car fan Beckham is one of a group of wealthy Lunaz investors that includes the Reuben Brothers, the Barclay Family and Alexander Dellal.
Referring to his investment last June, he said: ‘Lunaz represents the very best of British ingenuity in both technology and design. I was drawn to the company through their work restoring some of the most beautiful classic cars through upcycling and electrification.’
Lunaz – who are they?
Lunaz is based at Silverstone which, aside from hosting F1 racing, has also become a hub for advanced automotive technology .
Producing its first cars from 2019, its Lunaz Design arm created the world’s first fully-electric Range Rover, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and Jaguar sports cars through its Lunaz Design brand.
The 1961 Bentley Continental Flying Spur by Lunaz, costing £350,000, was awarded by BBC Top Gear in its ‘Electric Vehicle Awards’ issue.
Prices start at £245,000 (excluding tax) for an electrified Range Rover Classic. An electrified Rolls-Royce Phantom V, a limousine starts at £500,000 (excluding tax).
