Jamie Oliver posts rare throwback photo of parents celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary
James Oliver, the chef and restauranteur known for several television shows, including “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” uploaded a photo of his parents on their wedding ceremony.
In the image, the chef’s father, Trevor, was wearing a grey suit with a dark purple shirt and an even darker tie. As for the accessories, he added a lapel flower pin on the left side of his chest.
Sally, Jamie’s mother, was wearing a white bride dress while holding the bouquet with one hand and her husband with the other. Both of them looked happy right after exchanging vows and saying “I do.”
For the caption, the celebrity chef wished his parents a happy 45th wedding anniversary and admitted that it was an amazing achievement.
Finally, he thanked them for being great parents and wonderful role models for him and his sister Anna. As soon as he uploaded that photo, his followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
One of them was Instagram user @jenbais14th, who congratulated the couple and said that Jamie looked a lot like his father. @okie_angie chimed in and said that they looked like a current handsome hipster couple of lovebirds.
As Hello Magazine reported, Jamie, who has five children, is very close to his family. He grew up living in The Cricketers pub in Essex, England, with his parents who still own the place.
Jamie’s wife, Juliette Oliver, revealed that the chef used to be a drummer and that, when she saw him playing with his band in a gig when he was about 18 years old, she fell in love.
“He was quite popular, so I thought 'I want a piece of that,' and he was very cool and the man about town. When I was 18, he asked me out on a date, and then we had a courtship for a year, and we have never separated since. Never broken up,” added Juliette.
The 43-year-old chef married the woman in 2000. So far, they have had five children, all born after they walked down the aisle: Poppy, 2002; Daisy, 2003; Petal, 2009; Buddy, 2010; and River, 2016.
