Posh Spice 'to wed in Ireland'

Victoria Adams and David Beckham: An Irish Spice splice?

Spice Girls singer Victoria Adams is planning to marry her soccer star fiancé David Beckham in Ireland, according to a UK newspaper.

The Sun reports the couple will wed on 4 July at a church near Dublin.

A reception for about 500 guests is planned at a nearby castle after the ceremony, according to the report.

The couple are reported to have asked guests to wear black and white for the event, and have designed their own wedding coat of arms featuring the Premiership trophy.

The lavish parchment invitations are reportedly laced with gold leaf and show the crest which includes a swan floating on a gold crown and a red and white shield with the couple's initials above the words Love and Friendship.

Guests have reportedly been banned from bringing cameras to the service. It is believed celebrity magazine OK! has paid £1m for exclusive rights to the service.

Adams, 24, and Manchester United midfielder Beckham, 23, have a month-old son, Brooklyn George.

Her Spice Girls colleague Mel B married dancer Jimmy Gulzar in September near their home in Buckinghamshire. Despite enormous press interest, the couple managed to evade fans and media waiting outside.
