Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have released the first images of their private wedding ceremony. Photo: Getty ImagesAfter marrying in secret late last month, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally released the photos – including images of Jolie’s custom-designed wedding dress.
The veil and ivory dress has a classic look from the front, but the back view shows the extent of creative licence Jolie gave her six children in the design.
Both the veil and the dress were covered in colourful drawings done by the couple’s children, as revealed in photographs obtained by People and Hello magazines.
Atelier Versace designer Luigi Massi embroidered all the children’s designs into the dress and veil, making one memorable wedding dress.
“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” Jolie told People.
“He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”
The ceremony was held in the chapel of their French castle and vineyard estate Chateau Miraval, near Correns in the south of France.
The couple’s children helped organise the intimate affair, which was attended by only 20 close family and friends on August 23.

50-year-old Pitt and 39-year-old Jolie told People they wanted a “fun and relaxed” wedding.
“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” Pitt told the magazine.
“It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”
Their eldest sons 13-year-old Maddox and 10-year-old Pax walked their mother down the aisle, and Pax also baked the wedding cake.
Zahara, nine, and Vivienne, six, were the two flower girls, and eight-year-old Shiloh and six-year-old Knox were the ring bearers.
Apart from the bespoke gown, the wedding was a fairly relaxed affair.
Pitt wore a suit he already owned, and Vivienne also wore a dress from her wardrobe.
The couple’s other children all wore black suits, and the flower girls used flowers from the estate’s garden.
The wedding bands were designed by Robert Procop, the jeweller who also designed Jolie’s engagement ring.

The pair originally met on the set of their movie Mr and Mrs Smith, and Pitt proposed in 2012.
At the time, he told E! News it was the children who really wanted the couple to get married.
“We’re getting a lot of pressure from the kids,” he toldE! Newsat the time. “We didn’t realise how much it meant to them and then, in getting engaged, how much it also means to us.”
Jolie also told Good Morning America this year it was really important that the couple’s children enjoyed themselves at the wedding.
“We talk to the kids about it once in a while,” said Jolie.
“You know, I think the important thing is that whatever we do, it’s that the kids do have a great time, and we all…take seriously the love, and the connection between all of us. But also just get silly and do something memorable.”
It’s Pitt’s second marriage (he was married to Jennifer Aniston for five years) and Jolie’s third.
The Malificent actress was first married to Jonny Lee Miller, and then Billy Bob Thornton.
