Hollywood’s most famous couple may have exchanged vows on the sly over a week ago, but Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have decided to share photos and details from their intimate ceremony, which People debuted exclusively in conjunction with Hello! magazine in this week’s issue.
“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” Pitt and Jolie told People of their Aug. 23 ceremony held at the family’s estate in France. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”
The family affair, attended by just 20 people, integrated each of the couple’s six children in meaningful ways leading up to and during the ceremony. Not only did the kids help write the vows, bake the cake, and create designs for Jolie’s custom veil, they also teamed up to escort their mom down the aisle, and serve as flower girls and ring bearers.
For more details on the wedding, Jolie’s gown and veil (created by close friend and Atelier Versace mater tailor Luigi Massi) and Pitt’s suit (from his closet!), be sure to pick up this week’s issue of People.
