The uber classy and fashionable couple of Hollywood, known the world over through one catch word, Brangelina have finally taken their relationship to the solemnisation level.
The dynamic and glitzy partners of almost nine years finally went through their nuptials in a little chapel at Chateau Miraval of village Correns, in Provence, south of France. The couple have an estate there which is practically a second home. It was apparently a private ceremony with only a very select list of family and friends in attendance.
While Pitt was previously married to friends star Jennifer Anniston with whom he split in 2005 about the time when his relationship with Jolie was making rumour mills go in to overdrive. They had been married for five years. Prior to that Pitt had been engaged with Gwyneth Paltrow for a couple of months.
Jolie herself has been married before. The first time with Jonny lee miller, her British co star from the movie Hackers for three years. She then married Billy Bob Thornton (1999 to 2003). Her eldest child Maddox had been adopted by her while she was still with Thornton.
It had been widely written that Pitt had said that the two would not get married until same gender couples or people with all kinds of preferences had equal rights to marriage across the United States. However, with the constant insistence of the kids which had made them go for the engagement finally did them in.
It is being said that the marriage licence was given by a local judge from California who flew in to conduct the ceremony. The couple became romantically involved back in 2004 while filming the thriller Mr. And Mrs. Smith, and were engaged in 2012. The ceremony was non denominational in the sense that it was not a very expensive high profile wedding and was in fact very intimate.
All the children had roles to play in the ceremony. It is being said that Jolie walked the aisle with sons, Pax (10) and Maddox (13). Her son Knox who is six years old and daughter Shiloh served as ring bearers. The daughters Vivienne (6) and Zahara (9) were entrusted with petal throwing. It is rumoured that Robert Procop, a really good friend has designed the wedding bands. It is also rumoured that Jolie did wear all white ensemble.
Jolie has an upcoming movie in Unbroken while Pitt has Fury, a World War II thriller. The two are slated to make an onscreen comeback after their first movie back in 2005, in By the Sea, which is slated to be written and directed by Jolie herself. The couple kept the wedding well under the wraps and away from the massive media glare it would have attracted successfully much to the chagrin of the paparazzi.
