Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s celebrity wedding plans

Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz will tie the knot at the so-called “society wedding of the year” this weekend.

The unification of a Miami dynasty and the meeting of British celebrity royals is expected to be a star-studded affair with a host of high-profile names.

While Brooklyn’s parents David and Victoria Beckham have an estimated net worth of £380million, that’s nothing compared to the money his wife-to-be’s family has.

Bates Motel actress Nicola is the daughter of American businessman Nelson Peltz, who is worth four times the Beckhams.

With an estimated fortune of £1.7billion, it’s no wonder Brooklyn was asked to sign the “mother and father of all pre-nups”.

Who is the Peltz family and how did they make their fortune? Here’s everything we know about Brooklyn Beckham’s new in-laws.

Nicola’s father, Nelson Peltz, is an American — and Donald Trump-supporting — businessman who turns 80 in June.

He is currently ranked number one with a personal fortune of £1.7 billion forbes as the 1,729 richest man in the world.

But that’s not how it started. The New York native, who was born into a Jewish family in Brooklyn, has a rags-to-riches history similar to that of the Beckhams.

After dropping out of college in 1963, he worked his way up in his family’s food company, A. Peltz & Sons.

He started out as a driver, delivering fresh produce to New York restaurants. He later led the company into the frozen food business and bought several other food companies.

Then in 1983 he and his business partner bought a stake in Triangle Industries and turned it into one of the largest packaging companies in the world. He later sold his stake for a whopping $840m (£701m).

In 2005 he started a new company, Trian Fund Management, an investment firm he still owns today. The company has interests in companies such as Heinz, Cadbury and Tiffany & Co, among others.

Today, the American investor is non-executive chairman of the US fast food chain Wendy’s, the multinational Sysco and the sports company The Madison Square Garden Company.

Nicola’s mother, Claudia Heffner Peltz, is a former American model who is said to have a net worth of $5 million herself.

She rose to fame in 1985 when she became Nelson’s third wife.

The 67-year-old had eight children with Nelson, three of whom are public.

Just as daughter Nicola is an actress, son Will, 35, has acted in teen movies like Time Freak and Sierra Burgess Is A Loser.

While 32-year-old son Brad is a professional ice hockey player for the Ottawa Senators team.

Claudia disappeared from the limelight after having children who preferred being a housewife.

She is reportedly an avid philanthropist with an impressive collection of diamond jewelry.

But the only time people see much of her is on her lookalike daughter Nicola’s Instagram feed. Claudia is shy of technology and does not use social media herself.

Nelson and Claudia live in a sprawling 27-bedroom mansion called High Winds in the affluent New York suburb of Bedford.

Her famous neighbors include Martha Stewart and movie stars Bruce Willis, Glenn Close and couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.

Every day in the 1990s, Nelson commuted by helicopter to his office in downtown New York until he received complaints about the noise.

The 130-acre mansion was formerly owned by Reader’s Digest founder DeWitt Wallace and is said to feature an impressive art collection, an indoor ice rink, a private lake and a flock of albino peacocks.

Peltz’s property portfolio also extends to a luxurious £78million beach house in Miami, where Brooklyn and Nicola’s wedding is set to take place this weekend.

One of the most expensive homes in the area, the palatial Palm Beach estate spans 44,000 square feet.

In addition to its dreamy beachfront location, it has extensive gardens and a swimming pool on the premises.

Nelson reportedly bought the house across the street to get permission to build a tennis court. This now serves as the mansion for guests and no doubt where people will be staying at the wedding this weekend.

The Peltz family also owns a fleet of helicopters and two private jets so they can get around with ease.
