Liz Hurley and Sir Elton John were among an impressive line-up of celebrity guests at the christening of David and Victoria Beckham's two sons.
Brooklyn, five, and two-year-old Romeo were christened in a ceremony in the grounds of the family's Hertfordshire mansion, dubbed Beckingham Palace.
Sir Elton and his partner David Furnish are thought to have become godfathers to both children. The celebrity couple arrived for the black-tie affair in a silver Rolls Royce.
The service was planned as a traditional Christian ceremony - media pundits had earlier hailed the bash as ranking alongside Christmas itself, when the Christian world celebrates the birth of Jesus.
But unlike Christian tradition, the entrance to the specially built chapel was guarded by Buddhist statues.
Shortly after Sir Elton arrived at the house, Liz Hurley was driven past security guards and through the gates of the mansion.
Among those also attending were Spice Girls Emma Bunton, Mel Chisholm and Geri Halliwell - but minus Mel Brown.
Other famous guests included tennis player Greg Rusedski and footballers Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.
The christenings were conducted by the Rt Rev Paul Colton, the Bishop of Cork, who married the couple five years ago.
Earlier, Beckham's mother Sandra drove to the couple's home near Sawbridgeworth, closely followed by Victoria's parents, Tony and Jackie, and then her sister, Louise.
