Considering we haven't even been invited we've probably been a bit too excited about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's forthcoming nuptials. But as more details of the big day begin to emerge we're beginning to experience levels of giddiness last felt this time last year when Wills and Kate tied the knot.

Brad and Ange are getting hitched at their £35 million French chateau (complete with specially built reception hall) on 11 August - that much we do know - but now a few more bits of info about the big day have emerged.

Despite Brad apparently being keen on a traditional wedding, Ange has set her heart on an ethnic ceremony to reflect how different cultures tie the knot around the world - particularly the home countries of their adopted children - Maddox, 10, from Cambodia, Pax, 9, from Vietnam and Zahara, 7, from Ethiopia.

"They both agree on the essentials, like the fact they want it to be a big celebration with their family and friends.

Angelina is also said to be keen to have a fuller figure for her big day and has reportedly asked Jamie Oliver to help her put on a few pounds.
