Earlier in the day, Victoria gave an insight into their wedding day with a clip of the couple cutting their cake.
Posh and Becks were seen in their famous matching purple outfits at the Robin Hood themed wedding at Dublin’s Luttrellstown Castle.
Victoria captioned the shot: “4.7.99. 24 years ago. I love you so much @DavidBeckham.”
She then took to her Stories to show how spoiled she was on the anniversary, showing off all the cards she received for a giant Hermes box containing a gift from David.
Their youngest child, 11-year-old daughter Harper, also treated the couple to two gift bags while praising them for being the “best mom and dad ever.”
Victoria and David, who are also parents to sons Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 20, and Cruz, 18, tied the knot in Ireland in 1999 and have kept their lives together in the spotlight.
Last year they revealed that naysayers were rife, with Victoria saying: ‘They say he’s not funny, they say I never laugh, they said it wouldn’t be long… Today we celebrate turning 23 years of marriage. David you are my everything, I love you so much!”.
In 2017, Victoria wrote a letter back to her 18-year-old self Fashion, with wedding tips. She wrote, “In marriage: be patient. Bite your tongue. Be supportive. And keep a little mystique. Never let yourself go completely.’

The Beckhams famously got married in a spectacular ceremony, reportedly costing £800,000, with them both wearing daring ensembles. Footage from the big day in an OK! spread and story on the front page.
Their marriage came about when David had just won the treble with Manchester United and Victoria was a global icon with the Spice Girls.
Their highly anticipated wedding ceremony, on July 4, was complete with golden thrones and a glittering tiara for the bride.
While no expense was spared for the wedding — officiated by Bishop of Cork, Paul Colton — the day was also filled with touching, heartfelt moments, including four-month-old Brooklyn serving as ring bearer.
The power couple hired Bentley’s Entertainments, organizers of both Elton John’s and Princess Anne’s 40th birthdays, to mastermind the much-publicized showbiz event.
Their picturesque Irish venue was set on 560 acres and dated back to the 18th century, with organizer Peregrine Armstrong-Jones telling OK! how ‘Victoria wanted somewhere really private and unique, somewhere leafy and green’.
She’d hired Simon Lycett, who worked on the 1990s rom-com Four Weddings And A Funeral, to set up the floral arrangements — complete with fresh apples pierced and scattered around the castle to give off the scent of fruit.
While David was rocking a £230,000 Bentley Azure in a cream suit designed by Timothy Everett, Victoria wore a dress by Vera Wang as she rode in style in a Bentley Arnage.
She turned heads in a diamond and gold crown, which was custom made by Slim Barrett, who had previously accessorized Princess Diana.
Family: The couple, parents of Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 20, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 11, tied the knot in Ireland in 1999 and have lived their life together in the spotlight (Brooklyn, his wife Nicola Peltz, daughter Harper and son Cruz, photo)
Despite the marriage being discussed as part of the lucrative magazine deal, last year Victoria was adamant that the wedding wasn’t as lavish as it seemed.
Speaking to The Business of Fashion as part of the BoF VOICES 2022 event, she said of her big day: “I think the media glorified the wedding a lot more than it actually was… [It was] actually much more intimate than it seemed.’
She added, “I like to have fun. I work very hard. I take what I do very seriously. I want to be a great wife, a great mother, but I also want to have fun…
“Sometimes my tongue-in-cheek sense of humor gets me into trouble, but the wedding wasn’t as big as everyone thought [to be].’
