Angelina Jolie's wedding veil has artwork by kids, Brad borrows tie from son
The world came to know about their wedding four days too late. But Hollywood's golden couple -- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt -- have gone ahead and shared the pictures of their 'super secret' wedding with Hello magazine, in conjunction with US publication People.
The photographs show the duo kissing as well as a look at Angelina Jolie's fab gown and veil, which is covered with artwork by her six children.
There is also one of the couple with their brood -- Maddox, 13, Pax, ten, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox -- all dressed in their wedding finery.
Angie's gown was designed by gown by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace.
"Luigi is like family to me and I couldn't imagine anyone else making this dress," Jolie said in the interview to the magazines. "He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together."
The magazines also reported that Pitt wore a suit from his closet – with a tie borrowed from one of his sons because Pitt forgot to pack his. Zahara's dress was designed by family friend Adama Kebe. Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, and Knox wore black suits (Shiloh's included shorts and a top hat), and Vivienne wore a white dress from her closet. Jeweller Robert Procop, who designed Jolie's engagement ring, created the couple's wedding bands.
The intimate August 23 ceremony – attended by just 20 friends and family members – was held in the chapel of Château Miraval, the family's estate in the French village of Correns.
Each child had a key role to play: Eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, walked their mom down the aisle; flower girls Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, tossed petals gathered from the garden; and Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers. The kids also helped write their parents' vows. And Pax baked the cake, Hello reported!
"It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter," Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, told the magazines. "It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family."
