Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married at a chateau in France on Saturday, a spokesman for the couple has revealed.
According to a Sky news report, it was initially believed they had just been on holiday in the south of France at the weekend.
But now it has emerged that they tied the knot in a private ceremony attended by their family and friends.
The wedding took place in a small chapel at Chateau Miraval, in the village of Correns, which the couple has rented since 2008.
In advance of the non-denominational civil ceremony, Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, obtained a marriage licence from a local California judge.
The judge also conducted the ceremony in France.
The spokesman said the couple’s children took part in the wedding with Jolie’s eldest sons Maddox and Pax walking her down the aisle.
Zahara and Vivienne threw petals while Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.
On Thursday Pitt was photographed for the first time wearing his wedding ring as he attended an event to promote his World War Two film Fury in Dorset.
