Jamie shared the sweet photo to mark Jools' birthday

Jools and Jamie tied the knot on 24 June 2000, after dating for eight years. The lovebirds got together long before Jamie made a name for himself in the culinary world when they were both just 17. The couple have since become parents to five children: Poppy, 19, Daisy Boo, 18, Petal Blossom, 12, Buddy, 11, and five-year-old River.

Jamie and Jools have been married since 2000

Jamie, 46, has often spoken out about what has made his marriage go the distance. Of their plans to renew their wedding vows on their 20th wedding anniversary last year, he previously told Event magazine: "Jools wants to get married again. We'll do it completely differently. It sounds a bit cheesy, but 20 is an amazing milestone. It's nice to have an excuse to get people together."

Jools revealed that they wanted to "do things differently" the second time around. "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!" she told Red magazine last July.

Recalling their first nuptials, the doting wife continued: "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!"
