Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz's wedding planners slam $159k lawsuit over ... trends now
It was the stellar event that should have been a gleeful career highlight for even the most illustrious luxury-wedding planners.
Yet though the world looked on in delighted fascination when Brooklyn Beckham married Nicola Peltz last year, the whole celebration has been irretrievably soured for two women involved in its planning but who were fired at the 11th hour.
Last week, the bride's father, billionaire Nelson Peltz, launched a lawsuit demanding his $159,000 (£132,000) deposit back from wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba over alleged 'mistakes'.
But last night, in a world exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, the pair blasted back against what they claim is a 'frivolous' lawsuit.
Speaking from their homes in Florida, they claimed they worked around the clock to ensure the $3.5 million (£2.9 million) wedding went off flawlessly last April.

The women have spent 17 years building up their business, Plan Design Events, and say they have never before had a single complaint filed against them. According to the wedding planners:Bride Nicola sent them a gushing text the day before they were fired saying: 'You're killing it!' They worked 17-hour days and claim they are owed more than $159,000 for the work they did. Brooklyn Beckham was 'sweet' and 'a gentleman' and sent them a message saying: 'Thank you guys so much for everything you're doing.'
Nicole, a 42-year-old mother- of-two who was born in Brazil and came to the US aged ten, said: 'We love what we do and we're good at it,' adding that 'never once in that time' have they ever felt 'bullied or disrespected by any of our clients'.
'My daughter gives the best job description when she says "my mommy makes dreams come true". If it was Mr Peltz's mission to damage our reputations, impact our business and hurt our families –then mission accomplished.'
The women were approached by Mr Peltz, 80, and his third wife Claudia, 67, a former model, on February 23 last year.
