Taking to Instagram Stories, she wrote: ‘My dad spoke about this in his wedding at our wedding. 

‘Me and Brooklyn are devastated about what is going on in Ukraine and have asked for donations to CareOrg in lieu of wedding gifts. Anything helps.’

Her new sister-in-law, 10-year-old Harper Beckham, was among the flower girls, and her bridesmaids wore gowns crafted by tailor Joel Diaz.

He added a diamond lapel chain from Anita Ko – a gift from his new in-laws. 

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails adorned with white cherry blossoms as a jazz quartet played, Vogue reported.

A 12-piece live band then took over the entertainment for the black-tie dinner organised by ALR Music.

The dinner was served in a marquee by the seafront, filled with spectacular floral arrangements from HMR Designs.

The team used garden roses layered with peonies, white ranunculus, spray roses and hydrangea, Vogue said.

The father of the groom gave a speech, reportedly crying and having to ‘stop to take a breather’. He called the billion dollar heiress ‘incredible’.

He ‘shed a tear’ while speaking about ‘wanting to protect’ his first son following his birth in 1999, according to onlookers.

A source told The Sun: ‘He said he was sleeping on the hospital floor, holding the door shut because he didn’t want to let anyone get in.

‘David got a lump in his throat and had to stop and take a breather to regain his composure, but it was a very sweet speech.’

He’s thought to have added of Nicola: ‘We love you so much. We are excited that you’ll be part of the family.’

Brooklyn’s best men, his brothers Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17, delivered speeches.
