The never-before-seen video from the sensational event at 15th-century Luttrellstown Castle, near Dublin, shows the couple’s first dance to It Had To Be You, by Frank Sinatra.

They had by then changed into their second outfits of the day, choosing to wear matching purple designer ensembles.

In typically romantic style, the newlywed Beckhams can be seen whispering in each other’s ears as a star-studded guest list watches on from beside the dance floor.

And in one particularly cheeky new clip, Victoria is seen dancing with her hand placed on David’s bum.

Another incredible clip shows the couple using a bespoke Wilkinson sword to cut into their three-tiered cake, topped with fondant sculptures of a semi-naked David, Victoria and then baby Brooklyn.

It comes as music icon Robbie Williams and Spice Girl Mel B have paid tribute to the couple reaching the milestone.

Robbie told The Sun: “David and Victoria, your love and devotion to each other has stayed true and is lasting the test of time.

“It is heartwarming, being in a long-term relationship with my beautiful wife, who I like and love, that there are others around me that show me how to do it.

“Your children reflect who you are as people and as parents. I’ve met all the Beckham kids and they are all incredibly polite, incredibly kind and incredibly respectful.

“That’s who their children are and that must mean that’s who their parents are, too. Long live David and Victoria.”

Mel exclusively told us: “Victoria and David, 25 b****y years – what’s the secret?

“I was there at your wedding with the thrones and who can forget the purple outfits?

“David and Victoria, congratulations.”

The £750,000 wedding was kept under close wraps by a huge team of 236 security guards, led by ex-military man Kevin O’Brien, as fans from across the world flew in to try and catch a glimpse.

On the morning of the big day, David played a round of golf at the castle with best man and then Manchester United teammate Gary Neville.

For the ceremony itself, he adorned a cream suit, gold and cream waistcoat, cream shirt, cravat, top hat and shoes by British designer ­Timothy Everest – before arriving in a £230,000 Bentley Azure.

Victoria, meanwhile, wore a £100,000 gown by Vera Wang, featuring a bodice by couture corsetiere Mister Pearl, who has since worked on outfits for Bridgerton.

The gown required six fittings in New York and took an astonishing 15 months to make.

Their guests were were given a black and white dress code so they would not clash with the star couple.

The only exceptions were three of Victoria’s Spice Girls bandmates – Mels B and C and Emma Bunton – and David’s teammates Gary, Teddy Sheringham, Ryan Giggs and Dwight Yorke.

The ceremony itself was tight-knit, watched by 29 close family and friends.

Guests dined on a three-course meal before the wedding became an A-list extravaganza as a further 197 friends joined for the reception.

After the traditional speeches, guests were led into second another extravagant marquee decorated with golden statues, flowers and a black and white chequered dancefloor.

The party carried on well into the early hours, with guests gathering on a large platform to watch a fireworks display – the finale of the night.

A quarter of a century on, the Beckhams now have four kids and have amassed an estimated £455million.

But their anniversary celebrations are unlikely to match the vast expanse of their wedding.

Instead, despite their continued love for a party displayed by Victoria’s 50th birthday earlier this year, it is expected to be a more intimate occasion.

Posh and Becks’ romantic story in their own words

David’s story

Recalling fondly the first time he laid eyes on Posh, David told The Sun: “I always said that once I met Victoria, I would always be with her.

“A couple of months before we met I was abroad with the England team. Gary Neville and I were in the hotel room and a Spice Girls video came on. I think it was Say You’ll Be There. I pointed at the screen and told him, ‘That’s the girl for me and I’m going to get her’.

“It was her eyes, her face. She’s my idea of perfection.”

They finally met the following year and David, now 49, recalled how they initially took things slowly — before enjoying secret trysts in the footballer’s BMW in a Harvester pub car park.

He said: “I fancied her like mad but I didn’t want to rush things. It was hard, but I managed to stop myself kissing her until our fourth date. I’m glad I waited. It was a great kiss.”

Victoria’s story

Victoria admits: “I fancied David long before we met.

“I remember doing an interview for a soccer magazine and they showed me photos of different footballers.

“I had no idea who he was, but I just remember thinking one word: Gorgeous.”

n her life story, Learning To Fly, Victoria recalls: “We looked at each other. We both knew.

“I said, ‘Go on, give me your number then and I’ll call you’.

“‘No’, he said, quick as a flash. ‘You give me your number’.

“So I did. I opened my bag, found a pen, then looked for something to write on.

“The tear-off bit of my boarding card, that would do. First I wrote my mobile number. Then I thought better of it.

“You never know. I scribbled over the top then wrote down my mum’s number.

“‘I’ve got to go now’, I said.

“‘I’m telling you, Mr David Beckham, if you don’t ring me, I’m going to kick you in the bs next time I see you’.

“By the time I was next back in England a week later, me and David had talked for hours and hours on the phone.

“I don’t think there has been a day in my life since then that we haven’t spoken to each other.”
