The Beckhams paid my mortgage’


Then the bride gets a phone call. Cameron House asks if she can shift the wedding date – no explanation given. The bride says no. Days later Cameron House calls again. “We have a client who is very keen to hire the venue on that weekend,” says the receptionist. “The client is offering to cover the cost of your wedding if you would change the date.”

Again, the bride refuses: she has relatives flying in from overseas. The following day, the phone rings again. Cameron House’s top-secret client is offering to cover the cost of the wedding, the honeymoon, and to pay for their relatives flights to Scotland.

Perhaps surprisingly the bride declines again. “Everyone has booked time off work – it’s too short notice.”
Then the comes the pièce de résistance. “Do you have a mortgage?” asks the receptionist in a final phonecall. “Our client is willing to pay it off.” Deal done.

“The cheque came in the post last week for £260,000 – signed by Victoria Beckham.”
