David Beckham may have been flying solo at Guy Ritchie and Jacqui Ainsley’s wedding last week but, as his latest Instagram posts prove, he made the most of his time away from his loving wife, Victoria Beckham, and his adoring brood by catching up with some of his closest guy pals—including Brad Pitt, no less—, in what has to be the most stylish lads weekend of all time.

Taking to his social media account after the beautiful celebrations on Thursday, the 40-year-old football star (and the man who’s frequented more of our NSFW dreams than we can count) shared a host of behind-the-scenes snaps from the run-up to the nuptials alongside the groom-to-be, film director Guy.

The first post has to be one of the hottest uploads in Instagram history, as David shared a laugh with Guy (second from the left) and his U.N.C.L.E co-stars, Henry Cavill (left) and Armie Hammer (second from the right). What we wouldn’t give to be LOLing alongside those dapper blokes at the seemingly hilarious quip… dreamy.

Next, the sports star-turned-underwear model took a snap of his digs for the lads weekend—an array of tipis and tents, sitting in the morning mist. Now this is a camping trip we can get on board with.

David’s last intimate photograph shows he and Henry Cavill walking arm in arm with Guy the night before his wedding, with very serious looks on their faces. Clearly poking fun at the shot, David captioned it with the words: ‘Myself and superman aka Henry feeling like we are being told off by our dad... And if you look closely I believe superman looks a little more scared than the underwear model’. Seriously, what’s that all about?

After having all the fun at Guy and Jacqui Ainsley’s wedding, it was time for David to head back to LA, where he and his family are staying for the summer. However, something a little bit strange happened at the other end of his journey.

The paps stateside went into overdrive when they spotted Victoria Beckham heading into LAX airport, and it was assumed that she was picking up her hubby after his trip. However, after David emerged from the terminal minute later, sans his wife, rumours started to swirl that the couple—who have been married for 10 years—we deliberately avoiding each other…

NONESENSE, we say!

The couple are known for being fiercely protective of their family, especially their four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper, with the pair going to great lengths to ensure that at least one of them is with their brood at all times. Hence why Vic was M.I.A at the wedding itself.

And while it hasn’t been confirmed exactly where the fashion designer was heading off to, with New York Fashion Week just under one month away, you can pretty well guarantee she’s busy finishing up her SS16 collection in time for her show. Oh, and who’s to say they didn’t have a romcom reunion inside the airport away from the flashbulb? We don’t know about you, but we can’t think of anything worse than having our PDA’s caught on camera for the world to see…

Travelling in serious style, Victoria looked incredible in a black mini dress, complete with multi-colour motifs to the neckline and hem, which she paired with stacked tan wedges and her signature oversized sunglasses.

Regardless of their near-miss at the airport, the way that David and Vic continually make a conscious effort to keep their family grounded and as normal as possible is nothing but admirable. And, to be fair, we all need a bit of time to ourselves now and again…
