Jamie Oliver has renewed his wedding vows with his wife Jools, 23 years after they tied the knot.
The pair, who have been together since the age of 18, share five children together, including Poppy Honey, 20, Daisy Boo, 19, Petal Blossom, 13, Buddy Bear, 11, and River Rocket, five.
The celebrity chef, 47, shared an intimate carousel of family snaps on Instagram after saying ‘yes’ for the second time in the Maldives.
For the special occasion, Jamie looked smart in a blue blazer and matching trousers, paired with a crisp white shirt and lapel flower.
Jools, 48, looked elegant in an off-the-shoulder wedding dress complete with a ruffled design and a thigh-high slit.

Alongside the photos, Jamie wrote, “Morning y’all, me and @joolsoliver got married again! Yes, after 23 years together we thought it would be a special moment to celebrate the renewal of our wedding vows before the kids all leave the nest.’
Her brunette locks were styled straight with a white bow that held her hair in place, while she accessorized with pearl earrings.
She opted for a bronzed makeup palette that accentuated her natural features, along with a touch of nude lipstick.
Alongside the photos, Jamie wrote, “Morning y’all, me and @joolsoliver got married again! Yes, after 23 years together we thought it would be a special moment to celebrate the renewal of our wedding vows before the kids all leave the nest.
“It was very special, funny and romantic, with the words in the ceremony making more sense now that we had come this far together.
“It seems like a blink of an eye since the first wedding we kept very private, apart from the paparazzi in the village church, we thought it would be a happy and joyful moment to share with you all this Easter.
‘We always dreamed of going to the Maldives and it was exactly as you would have dreamed, just amazing! huge thank you to all the team at @discoversoneva for amazing and making this moment so special and memorable big love guys Jamie x’
Jamie later shared more snaps from the ceremony on his Instagram Stories, including a selfie with his wife and daughters captioned, “My queens.”
He also posted a photo with his two sons, Buddy and River, revealing that his oldest son had acted as a best man.

Jools also shared her own selection of snaps on her social media, writing:
“So great the first time we did it again. What an incredible memory to cherish so happy, emotional, romantic and beautiful. Seeing the little faces of the children made the whole experience so special. I could only have dreamed of being on vacation, so magical thank you so much Discover Soneva.
‘Your care, attention to detail and incredible kindness made everything so special it almost feels like it was a dream xxx
Jools and Jamie first started dating when they were teenagers and tied the knot on June 24, 2000 in the chef’s hometown of Rickling, Essex.
Jools spoke about renewing their vows in 2019, saying: ‘Next year we’ll have been married for 20 years and we’re getting married again, but doing things differently – outdoors and barefoot.

Looking back at their first ride down the aisle, she recalled, “Our first dance was to Dusty Springfield’s I Only Want To Be With You, but Jamie doesn’t like to dance, so I threw him off.” I was in my element!’
Chef Jamie, who hails from Essex, is reported to have a net worth of over £240 million.
He recently stressed that the humiliating collapse of his Italian restaurant chain, which saw 1,000 people lose their jobs, was just a “minor blip.”
The TV chef’s comment comes as he revealed he was returning to the restaurant game, opening a new food delivery chain and insisting, “We’ll go again.”
Jamie’s Italian went bankrupt in May 2019 after profits plummeted and customers stayed away, closing 22 outlets and cutting about 1,000 jobs.
The spectacular demise of Jamie’s business empire left the Italian food company owing around £83 million.
Speaking on Friday about the crushing collapse of his beloved restaurant chain, the TV personality said, “It happens, and I would actually call it a little blip, in the vision and the dream. A very painful one. But sure, I’m better for it.
“We had 13 great years and learned a lot. I was a young man when I started, I’m much older and wiser now.’
When asked whether or not he’d learned anything from the closure of his Italian restaurant chain, he said, “Yeah, sure, and every other failure I’ve had — that’s about 50 percent.” But I’ve never been so rounded, I’ve never been so experienced.’

But Oliver hopes to cause a storm with his latest venture, Pasta Dreams.
Starting with two pop-up spaces – in London’s Soho and Paris – he aims to roll out the service in London and other UK cities at a rate of two locations per month.
And the chef added that he also hopes to revive his collection of restaurants.
“We are really well positioned to go again, and we will go again, and I will go to restaurants again, as soon as I can,” he said.
It’s in my blood, it’s all I know really. It was never a problem of size, it was rent and rates that really got to us, and the decline of the high streets.’
