Renate Ruth Margot Blauel (born 1 March 1953) is a German music engineer.


Already a sound engineer, she had engineered albums including Hysteria for the Human League and Croatia Records.[2] She met Elton John whilst she was working as a recording engineer on his 1983 album Too Low for Zero in Sydney, Australia. John admitted that his bisexuality was a "compromise". They were married on Valentine's Day, 1984, in Sydney, after he had proposed to her four days earlier in a restaurant. Attendees included Olivia Newton-John. A second service was held for John's family members in the United Kingdom a few days later. She also worked as a recording engineer on John's 1984 album Breaking Hearts. Their marriage was dissolved on 18 November 1988, when John said he could no longer deny his sexual orientation.
