David and Victoria Beckham welcomed a host of celebrity stars to their Hertfordshire mansion, Beckingham Palace, as they celebrated the christening of their two boys, Brooklyn and Romeo, on December 23.

The couple were said to have had a traditional Christian baptism for the two boys with Rt Rev William Paul Colton, the Bishop of Cork, performing the service. The bishop had married the couple in Ireland back in 1999.
