The couple was celebrating their milestone wedding anniversary and after sharing a video showing off their personal wedding album earlier in the day with their millions of fans, the celebrity chef had something more intimate planned for his wife – a picnic!
They’re childhood sweethearts who have been dating since they were just 17, and Jools and Jamie Oliver‘s relationship appears just as strong as ever. The couple has welcomed five children together since tying the knot in 2000, with the celebrity chef often proclaiming his love for his wife in interviews and on social media – and revealing they intend to renew their vows as they reach their 20th wedding anniversary. In honor of their milestone anniversary, take a look back at Jools and Jamie’s wedding day, including their picturesque wedding venue, his colorful suit, and her timeless dress…
“Our wedding was formal, but we’re so not like that. It’ll be a big party. Why the hell not? I think we’ve done well!”
Jools shared the sweetest tribute to her husband on her Instagram.

Jamie previously suggested that the key to a happy marriage is “white lies”, to avoid hurting your other half. “I try not to do big lies, but subtle, gentle white lies are generally the key to a slightly happier life,” the TV chef admitted to Sunday Times food magazine in 2015. “They’re absolutely essential in a long-term marriage, I can assure you.”
