Jamie Oliver and Jools have said their vows three times in very different ceremonies.

Congratulations are in order as the couple have exchanged their vows for the third time to mark their 24th wedding anniversary. They love being the parents to their five children - Poppy, Daisy Boo, Petal, Buddy and River.

Their romance goes back to before Oliver found fame as the Naked Chef to when they were just teenagers on a double date. We take a look at Jamie and Jools Oliver's very different wedding ceremonies: Las Vegas, The Maldives and Essex.

With an Elvis impersonator, the Olivers renewed their vows at Graceland Chapel Las Vegas to celebrate their wedding milestone. This time round, Jools opted for a more casual look with jeans and a white blouse instead of a traditional white bridal dress. She carried a bouquet of red roses and had a mini veil.

Oliver shared photographs on his social media saying it was "really good fun" as well as sending "big love" to his wife Jools. Meanwhile, his wife joked that their marriage had a third person in it due to her big love for Elvis Presley.

She wrote on social media: "Happy 24 crazy married years together. I love you so much. Thank you for indulging my LOVE for Elvis. I know this marriage has ‘3 people in it but you get me like NO other! Just you wait and see what I have planned for our 25th."

Their latest vow renewal will come as a surprise to fans after the Olivers renewed their vows in The Maldives, in April last year. The TV chef and his wife were joined by their five children for the dreamy beach nuptials to celebrate 23 years of marriage.

Oliver said their vow renewals were "really special", "memorable" and "romantic" as he reflected on the major milestone and shared gorgeous photographs from the day on social media. They were barefoot but just like the very first time, Jools wore a beautiful white dress and Oliver wore a sky blue suit.

He wrote: "Morning all, Me & @joolsoliver got married again! Yep After 23 years together, we thought it would be a special moment to celebrate renewing our wedding vows before the kids all start leaving the nest.

"It was really special, funny and romantic with the words in the ceremony making more sense having come this far together. It seems like a blink since the first wedding which we kept very privet apart from the paparazzi at the village church we thought it would be a happy and joyful moment to share with you all this Easter.

"We’ve always dreamed of going to the Maldives and it was just as you would have dreamed, simply amazing ! a massive thank you to all the team at @discoversoneva for blowing our minds and making this moment so special and memorable big love guys Jamie oxxxxxxxxx."

It's been 24 years since the couple first tied the knot in July 2000 at All Saints Church in Rickling, Essex. Jools was every inch the blushing bride in a strapless white dress and veil. Her new husband looked stylish in a sky blue suit, fittingly the "something blue" for his bride.

Jools remembered their "formal" first wedding and she looked back with great fun on their first dance. She told Red magazine in 2019: "Our first dance was to Dusty Springfield's I Only Want To Be With You, but Jamie doesn't like dancing so I threw him off. I was in my element!"

Oliver said the vow renewal was his wife's idea! However, he said renewing the vows for the second time meant "something more" after their lifetime together because they had "earned it".

He told The Graham Norton show: "It was my wife's idea and I thought I'd go along with it. Saying the vows a second time around actually meant something more – you've earned it rather than just saying it, and I loved it. It was actually a very nice thing to do, very romantic, and I ended up enjoying it more than anyone else."

Oliver also told BBC Breakfast: "I wanted to do it on the 20-year anniversary, which was three years ago. Covid obviously put an end to that, and I just felt that with the kids leaving school and going to university – I have got two in Leeds at uni – it was just a nice moment to let them know that their parents are tight and we love them."

Their tenth wedding anniversary looked pretty special too as they hosted a party with friends and family. Jools seized the chance to wear another stunning bridal gown too.
