'Brangelina' marry in secret French wedding

LOS ANGELES -- Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally tied the knot after nine years together at a secret wedding in the south of France described as a “family affair” with their six children.

The A-list Oscar winners were married by a U.S. judge on Saturday in a small chapel at Chateau Miraval, in the picturesque village of Correns, a spokeswoman for the Tinseltown royal couple said.

George Clooney was among the celebrity friends to congratulate them. “I'm really happy for Brad and Angie and their whole family,” said the 53-year-old veteran bachelor, who announced his own engagement in April.

Jolie was walked down the aisle by her eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Daughters Zahara and Vivienne threw petals, while the couple's other two children, Shiloh and Knox, were the ring bearers.

“It was very much a family affair,” the spokeswoman said in a statement.

Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, obtained a marriage license in California from a local U.S. judge who traveled to France to conduct the wedding, which was described as a “non-denominational civil ceremony.”

Pitt was photographed Thursday wearing a gold band on his left ring finger during an event in Britain to promote his new World War II film “Fury,” in which he plays a battle-hardened army sergeant.

He and Jolie fell in love on the set of 2005 action film “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” — spawning the media phenomenon of “Brangelina” that has dominated celebrity journalism and the tabloids ever since.

Earlier this year, Jolie told People Magazine that she and Pitt were “not really in a rush” to get married, adding: “We're just waiting for it to be the right time with the kids, with work, when it feels right.”
