Jolie, Pitt wed privately at chateau in France

Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally tied the knot last Saturday in a private ceremony in Southern France, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.

The Hollywood couple exchanged vows in a small chapel at their Chateau Miraval in the Provence hamlet of Correns, according to a spokeswoman.

Before the nondenominational civil ceremony, they obtained a marriage license from a local California judge, who also conducted the ceremony in France.

Pitt and Jolie have been together nearly a decade and have six children, all of whom participated in the wedding.  Pitt had said he didn’t want to marry until gay marriage was legal everywhere, but in recent years, the couple had said publicly they intended to. They were engaged in early 2012. 

Jolie has said they fell in love while making the 2005 film Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

This is the second marriage for Pitt, who wed Jennifer Aniston in 2000. They divorced in 2005.

Jolie was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years in the late 1990s and to Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003, the report said.
