In a great spoof of the Posh Spice and David Beckham wedding...London's Evening Standard newspaper July 5, 1999, calls upon the help of our Elton look-a-like Raymond Johnson to re-create the special day.

 

A grand colour photo of Elton (Raymond Johnson) graced the cover of the pull-out "Life & Style" section of the newspaper.

 

Iin the newspaper's own words: "Mr and Mrs Beckham leave the chapel to the sound of Elton John playing an arrangement of Love In An Elevator. Elton is using the Casio SA-38. [Goldfinger film star] Oddjob assists."

 

The newspaper claims that while OK! Magazine paid £1 million for pictures of the real wedding...the Evening Standard paid...a few pence!
