Inside Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s Secret Wedding: The Food, The Dress, The Details!
In case you’ve been living under a rock, this past weekend, the world’s most genetically perfect couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, decided to get hitched at their estate in France. While the pair somehow managed to keep their nuptials completely under wraps, details of their big day are finally coming out, and we’ve got the scoop!
A rep for the pair released the following statement about the event:
On Saturday 23rd August 2014, in the presence of family and friends, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married in a small chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. It was a non-denominational civil ceremony.
It was very much a family affair. All their children took part. Angelina was walked down the aisle by her eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Zahara and Vivienne threw petals, gathered from the garden. Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers.
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.
In case this wedding doesn’t seem magical enough, an insider exclusively told E! News that “the chapel smelt of rosemary and jasmine from the bushes outside the window and the sun streamed in the tint-stained glass windows.” The pair were also said to have written their own vows “telling each other how much they love each other and their beautiful family, and they both had tears in their eyes as did everyone else.”
BUT TELL US ABOUT THE DRESS. The source describes the 39-year-old actress’ gown as “very traditional, but very Angie.” “It was comfortable with plain white floor length antique lace and silk. She had a veil but Brad lifted it and gasped because she looked so stunning. The boys all wore tiny matching cream linen suits which were just like Brad’s while the girls had each chosen a dress to match their own individual style and they had them specially made.” [I refuse to believe Shiloh wore a dress.

An estimated 22 guests attended the wedding, but one famous family member was missing from the affair: Jon Voight, Angie’s dad, with whom she’s had a tumultuous relationship for many years. Although Jon wasn’t present for the nuptials, that didn’t prevent the newlyweds from celebrating in style with their guests once they officially tied the knot.
“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],” the source reveals. “There were three different types of cakes, all picked by the kids—one was a strawberry ice cream one, another was a three chocolate gateau and a third had fresh cream and raspberries.”
Just like a freaking fairytale, did we really expect anything less from Brangie? Nope. [E! News]
