Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have stunned Hollywood by announcing they tied the knot in a secret ceremony on Saturday (23Aug14).

The Tomb Raider star wed the Hollywood actor at a small chapel at Chateau Miraval in Correns, France, a spokesman for the couple confirms.

The private, nondenominational civil ceremony was attended by family and friends of the superstar couple, and was conducted by a Californian judge, who gave Jolie and Pitt their marriage licence in the U.S.

The couple's six children were all involved in the wedding - Maddox and Pax walked Jolie down the aisle, Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers, while Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals. Shiloh, eight, and twins Knox and Vivienne, six, are the couple's biological children while Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, and Zahara, nine, are adopted.

Jolie and Pitt began dating in 2005 after meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and they have been dogged by marriage speculation for years. They got engaged in 2012. It is Pitt's second marriage following his divorce from actress Jennifer Aniston in 2005. Jolie was previously wed to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
