The most important wedding from the Royal Wedding onward, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s secret wedding ceremony took place a week ago. Famously private about their personal life, the couple celebrated the special day with just 22 guests.
Too few details emerged to satisfy our Brangelina thirst, however, People magazine just published photos of what will most certainly be one of the world’s most famous and copied wedding dresses: Angelina Jolie, the bride, was wearing an Atelier Versace white wedding dress!
The antique lace and silk white simple dress was designed by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace, a close friend of the family (Jolie said) and completed with artwork hand drawn by the couple’s six children and sewn onto the gown and veil. The wedding took place in the family’s French castle Château Miraval, in the French Provence, the village of Correns.
Brad Pitt was wearing a suit he already owned, coordinated with the boys suits – Maddox, Pax, Knox and even Shiloh were all wearing black suits (for Shiloh there were shorts and a top hat). Zahara wore a dress, also designed by a friend of the family (Adama Kebe) while Vivienne chose a white dress she already owned. The simple, yellow gold wedding bands were designed by Robert Procop (who also designer Angelina’s engagement ring).
“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” says Jolie in her interview. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.” “It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt gushed to People magazine “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”
