It’s been a long time coming but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally tied the knot. They met in 2004 on the set of Mr&Mrs Smith (2005). In early 2005, their relationship became the subject of a much-publicized Hollywood scandal, when they were alleged to have begun an affair. At the time, Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. By April 2005, Brad and Jen were over, but Angelina and Brad still weren’t official. Pitt and Jolie denied all speculations on several occasions, but both admitted that they “fell in love” after they starred together in Mr&Mrs Smith (2005).
After nine years and six children together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have married in France. Brad and Angie got married right before lunch local time on Saturday, August 23rd 2014, in the chapel in the grounds next to their house at Chateau. The wine-growing estate has a 35-room main house, an ancient chapel and a working vineyard spread over 1,100 acres. The only guests were Brad’s family from the states—his mom and dad, Bill and Jane Pitt, his brother Doug, sister Julie, and their kids. Jolie’s father Jon Voight was not in attendance.
The ceremony came two years after the couple’s 2012 engagement, when Jolie, 39, first showed off the custom sparkler that Pitt, 50, designed for her.
Jolie spoke about the couple’s low-key, kid-centric marriage plans. “We’re just waiting for it to be the right time with the kids, with work, when it feels right,” she said. “We talk about it occasionally, and the kids talk about it with us.
A source described the 39-year-old actress’ wedding dress as “very traditional, but very Angie.” “It was comfortable with plain white floor length antique lace and silk”. After saying “I do,” the clan celebrated at their lavish estate. They all went back into the main house into the ‘Great Hall’ and had a big celebration lunch with local hams, cheeses, freshly caught sea bass, Italian pastas and champagne, as well as Chateau Miraval rosé wine (Pitt and Jolie’s own brand),a source reveals.
Jolie also spoke about how supportive Pitt had been through her 2013 double mastectomy and ensuing recovery.
“We’ve been through so much,” she said. “We’ve gotten a lot closer, which I think naturally happens with raising a family together.”
It has been turned out to be an exceptionally big year for the couple.
In the days before coming to France, and as citizens of California, Brad and Angelina filled out their paperwork and obtained a marriage licence from a local judge, who also travelled to France to conduct the ceremony at Chateau Miraval. They are therefore married under Californian law.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie looked every inch the loved-up newlyweds on Saturday, 30th August 2014, as they took to the seas in Malta on board a luxury yacht with their whole brood in tow. The couple brought their six children along to help celebrate their honeymoon, squeezing in some quality time with their little ones in the midst of working on their new film project, By The Sea. The A-listers might have been together since 2005, but there’s clearly no shortage of passion in their relationship and the pair were very affectionate with one another during their day out.
Angelina was clad in a sporty ensemble comprising a black vest top, running shorts and a baseball cap, while 50-year-old Brad was covered up in a dark T-shirt and board shorts. At one point, the 39-year-old beauty reached up to give her new husband’s hair a tender ruffle as the pair stood looking out to sea from the stern of the boat.
The couple spoke about their experience “It’s a wonderful feeling to be married, the children are so happy!”
