American singer Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon garnered some publicity when they renewed their wedding vows last Friday at France's greatest monumental icon, the Eiffel Tower. The couple married in 2008 in the idyllic setting of the Bahamas and the famous singer has since given birth to twins.
Following a romantic tinged dinner in the lovely Jules Verne restaurant, the couple rededicated themselves in what was described as "an intimate ceremony" - one that was well-publicised and lavishly photographed. Good for them. Sometimes you need a quite moment.
And with that news, I hasten to say that you can do the same. How romantic it would be to take your dearest companion to the Eiffel Tower for a rededication of your love - and if the romance of the event was somehow missing, the meal at the Jules Verne would more than make up for any lingering disappointment. It would be your choice entirely whether to blast loud on the details to publicise the occasion, or to opt instead for a quiet, intimate gathering with representatives of the world's media in attendance.
I am on your side either way.
