“It allows same-sex marriages, something the couple passionately believe in.”
According to reports the 48-year-old actor, who splurged £160,000 on the engagement ring, had considered having a simple wedding in the Bahamas, on the beach where Jolie’s mother’s ashes were scattered.
But as they’re both based in UK now and both of them are busy shooting for their respective films, they’ve decided on a quickie English wedding.
“It just seems easier. They’ll keep it very low key,” the insider said.
“They haven’t finalised a date, but they are planning to slip out and get married with the minimum of fuss.”
After the ceremony, the duo plans to fly to the south of France for a posh bash at Chateau Miraval, their huge estate in Provence.
