The amazing Hollywood actress and philanthropist Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt surprised the world with the announcement of their wedding which took place on the 23rd of August 2014 surprised many as the couple managed to keep the occasion completely secret from the public.
The intimate Aug. 23 ceremony was attended by just 20 friends and family members and was held in the chapel of Château Miraval, the family’s estate in the French village of Correns.
Now we get our first look at the couple on their special day alongside their 6 beautiful children.
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! Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, sewed dozens of designs from her children’s drawings into the dress and veil.
Jeweler Robert Procop, who designed Jolie’s engagement ring, created the couple’s wedding bands.
Expressing their joy, the couple said “It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, tell PEOPLE. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”
