Pop star Michael Jackson was best man on Wednesday as Uri Geller and his wife Hanna renewed their wedding vows in a traditional service held at Uri's mansion in Berkshire.

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach conducted the blessing - a renewal of vows between Uri and Hanna, who actually married 10 years ago. 10.3.01
