The 39-year-old beauty graces the covers of both People, and HELLO! magazine, in her wedding dress after tying the knot with Brad Pitt in an intimate ceremony which took place at the family’s magical French home, Château Miraval on 23 August 2014.
While only 20 friends and family members were invited to take part in the couple’s big day, Pitt and Jolie’s six children played the largest roles. Eldest sons Maddox (13) and Pax (11) walked their mother down the aisle, while Zahara (9) and Vivienne (6) threw flower petals, and Shiloh (8) and Knox (6) served as ring bearers.
Meanwhile the children also literally put their mark on their mother’s gown. Never one to conform to expectations, Jolie donned an ivory satin Atelier Versace gown adorned with dozens her children’s designs and drawing sewn into the back of the gown and veil.
Jolie’s decision to make her kids such a large part of her wedding is hardly surprising since she previously told People that her children would definitely be heavily involved in the planning process.
“We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be, which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding,” she told the magazine back in May. “They will, in a way, be the wedding planners. It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other!”
“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family,” Brad and Angelina told Hello!
