Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Marry In France


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have married.

The A-list couple finally married in private on Saturday (August 23) at Chateau Miraval, their home in the south of France, a spokesperson confirmed to Associated Press.

Brad, 50, and and Angelina, 39, - who have been together for nine years since falling in love on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith - tied the knot in a chapel on their estate near Nice, surrounded by friends and family.

All six of their children took part in the ceremony.

There was no exotic honeymoon - far from it. Instead, Brad spent today (August 28) at the Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset, where he was promoting his new Second World War film. News of their marriage emerged after he flashed a gold wedding ring.

Angelina walked down the aisle with her eldest sons, Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, while daughters Zahara, nine, and Vivienne, six, threw petals.

Shiloh, eight, and Vivienne's twin brother Knox, six, were ring bearers.

A spokesperson for the couple confirmed they obtained a marriage licence from a local California judge, who also conducted the ceremony in France.


The couple have been the subject of countless rumours about their wedding plans, but managed to keep their day private. No photos or further details have been released.

This is a second marriage for Pitt – he was divorced from Jennifer Aniston in 2005 – and a third for Jolie. She was previously married to the actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.

In 2013 Angelina announced that she had had an elective double mastectomy to reduce her chance of breast cancer. She praised Brad for his support and understanding.

In May, Angelina said her kids had 'hysterical' plans for the couple's wedding, saying: "We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be, which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding.

"They will, in a way, be the wedding planners. It's going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other."

Well, it sounds like they didn't quite get their way!
