Last night's Met Gala might have been the biggest fashion party of the year, but there's one event this weekend we wish we had a ticket to - David Beckham's spectacular 40th birthday bash.

The entire Beckham clan - including their four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper - jetted off to Marrakech, Morocco at the start of the Bank Holiday weekend. 

The festivities began with an intimate family breakfast on the patio of the breathtaking and secluded Amanjena resort and ended with a lavish poolside party attended by A-list friends Eva Longoria, Liv Tyler and every member of the Spice Girls (bar Melanie Brown).

David finally joined Instagram just in time for the celebrations, sharing his highlights with his 5million followers. His family and friends also snapped the main events using the hashtag #DB40 which was trending throughout the weekend. Step inside the biggest celebrity birthday bash of the year so far...

  • All aboard...
