Brooklyn Beckham’s Wedding Venue: Here’s Where He Married Nicola Peltz


Over the weekend, close to 600 guests arrived at Nicola Peltz and Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding venue—a sprawling Palm Beach, Florida, estate—to celebrate their nuptials. The 27-bedroom property, known as Montsorrel, belongs to the actress bride’s parents, billionaire investor Nelson Peltz and former model Claudia Heffner Peltz. 

The location provided a perfect backdrop for the star-studded event, which was attended by Venus and Serena Williams, Eva Longoria, Michael Bay, M. Night Shyamalan, Marc Anthony, Gordon Ramsay, and more A-listers. Images of the home are somewhat rare, but one published by The Palm Beach Post shows that it has the quintessential look of a Palm Beach mansion, with a white exterior and bright blue shutters. With 13 acres (including a private beach), the property had plenty of room for Brooklyn and Nicola’s wedding planner, Michelle Rago, and event designers Rishi Patel and HMR Designs to erect a tent decorated with spray and garden roses, peonies, petite white ranunculus, and hydrangea (per Vogue), where guests danced the night away at the black-tie reception.

Photos posted on Instagram by aspiring chef Brooklyn’s famous parents, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and soccer superstar David Beckham, show that the ceremony also took place in what looks to be a tent, with a sleek white runway as the aisle and gray drapery at the entrance. Despite the sleek aesthetic of that space, the very traditional decor of the Peltz mansion serves as the backdrop for some the most widely circulated pictures of the newlyweds and their families. In one stunning portrait of the bride—who wore a Valentino Haute Couture gown with a long train and veil, and lacy opera gloves—she poses next to a gilded console table with a matching antique-looking mirror. Behind her is an Oriental rug flanked by two oversized chinoiserie urns on gilded stands. In another image, Peltz and her father appear in front of a large piece of art that appears to be one of the six pieces by Rashid Johnson, titled Untitled Anxious Audience. We don’t know exactly when Nelson purchased the piece or how much he paid, but one of the paintings in the set sold at Sotheby’s for $1.1 million in November of last year.

Aside from the lavish surroundings, the Peltz home also has quite an interesting history. The Palm Beach Post reports that the dwelling was built in 1964 by a woman named Anita Young, the sister of artist Georgia O’Keeffe. Young and her railroad-magnate husband lived in a different home on the same site, but, after he died by suicide, Young knocked the house down and rebuilt it into what is now Montsorrel. She owned it until her death in 1985, and, two years later, it was purchased by the Peltzes for $18 million—one of the most expensive real estate transactions in the country at the time. Today, the estate is worth an estimated $103 million.
