In a 2015 interview with Andy Cohen, Seal admitted that he wasn’t actually a fan of the renewals and that it was all Heidi’s idea. “It kind of turned into a little bit of a circus, which I wasn’t terribly fond of because, by default, I’m quite a private person…I don’t know how necessary [renewing our vows] was, but it was cool,” he said.
3. Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster
After a decade of marriage, Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster renewed their vows at their home in Essex, England.

1. Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
A-list actor, Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso opted for a small and private wedding which took place on December 2005 in a courthouse to avoid paparazzi. A few years later, in April 2013, they hosted a vow renewal in St. Lucia and this time they invited all their friends and family to watch. During a speech at Harvard University that year, he said: “It’s nice to say your vows in front of your family. That’s the point of taking the vows. These are people who will hold you to them. One of my vows was I gave her the side of the bed closer to the bathroom. And if I don’t stick to that, I’m gonna hear about that from my mom, brother and father.”
