Brad and Ange’s mock wedding: The kids marry them!

Brad and Ange's mock wedding: The kids marry them!

The superstar couple’s kids grew tired of waiting for Mum and Dad to get hitched, so they organised a cute backyard ceremony.

I t’s the wedding the world has waited for – the exchanging of vows by one of the most famous couples on the planet, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Now Woman’s Day can reveal that the Hollywood power pair has finally “tied the knot”.

No, not officially, but in a surprise mock ceremony orchestrated by their six children at their $10 million London mansion, Whornes Place, in Richmond upon Thames. A long-time close friend of Ange and Brad tells us their five-year-old daughter Shiloh was the mastermind behind the touching event. “Shiloh came up with the plan to give them a surprise wedding, just like the surprise birthday party she was given back in May,” the insider reveals. “Shiloh and Zahara organised the whole thing and enrolled their brothers to join.”

Having decided what part each of their siblings would play in the wedding ceremony, enterprising Shiloh and Zahara, 6, appointed themselves as flower girls. “They even planned to secretly make their own bridesmaid dresses by attaching real flowers from the yard to white nightgowns,” the friend says. According to the friend, Ange, 36, and Brad, 47, were powerless to resist the pleas of their much-loved little girls.

“They’ve been doing their best to hold off getting married,” the source says. “But the pressure’s been mounting and mounting.” While some were confident that when Ange and Brad did marry, it would be in a lavish ceremony at Chateau Miraval, their $56 million estate in the south of France, it seems their “big day” was a far more intimate affair. The “wedding” was held in the backyard under an archway covered in vines at their London home, which they call “The Old House”.
