WORLD EXCLUSIVE: BRANGIE SECRET BEACH WEDDING
WORLD EXCLUSIVE: ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT are thrilled to pieces over their fabulous secret wedding on a beach in the Bahamas!
With only their six children, the kids’ nannies and a few close friends as witnesses, they’ll say “I do” near the spot where Angelina scattered her late mother’s ashes, The ENQUIRER has learned.
“The wedding will be held before Angie heads to England to begin filming her next project, the movie ‘Maleficent,’ in June,” said a source close to the Hollywood superstars.
“The ceremony will take place in the same tropical setting where Angelina spread her beloved mom Marcheline’s ashes. She’s convinced her mother’s spirit will be with her on her big day, and Angelina is filled with joy just thinking about it.”
As The ENQUIRER recently reported, the newly engaged couple had planned to tie the knot in a splashy affair before hundreds of guests at their renovated $70 million estate on the French Riviera, Chateau Miraval.
They set the date for Aug. 11 – the 50th wedding anniversary of Brad’s parents, Bill and Jane.
But sources say the A-list lovebirds hatched a new plan after they began bickering over the details of their big day.
“Brad wanted the big bash in France, but Angelina wanted an intimate ceremony that would be just for them,” said the source. “It became a huge bone of contention between them.”
For a while, it seemed as if the Hollywood wedding of the century wouldn’t happen at all, another source said.
“But then Brad came up with a compromise,” the source revealed. “They’d have two weddings – a private ceremony in the Bahamas, and then a big party in France.
“The moment Brad suggested it, Angie screamed, ‘YES!’ It seemed like the perfect solution to all their problems.
Angelina,36, has already contacted the Bahamian registrar’s office to make sure her wedding day will run like clockwork, sources say, and Brad, 48, has jumped feet-first into planning.
“Logistically, Brad and Angie hope to pull off a feat like the late John F. Kennedy Jr. did when he married Carolyn Bessette,” the source explained.
“They plan to keep the wedding secret from everyone so that no one gets hurt feelings. Angie knows that a wedding should be about the couple who’s making a lifelong commitment – but weddings somehow end up being about family instead.
“By involving only family, Angie knows she and Brad will have the wedding they really want.
“Everyone will wear white. Brad will don a white linen suit and Angie will wear a white gown with a garland of fresh flowers on her head.
“Their sons Maddox, Pax and Knox will wear versions of Brad’s suit, and their daughters Shiloh, Zahara and Vivienne will wear miniature copies of Angie’s dress – though Shi is putting up a fight because she wants to wear a suit too!
“Angie and Brad will exchange vows at sunset as the warm summer breeze sweeps across the island. ”
The wedding feast will be an international smorgasbord of dishes – with nods to Africa where Shiloh and Zahara were born, Pax’s birthplace Vietnam, Maddox’s birthplace Cambodia, and France where Viv and Knox were born, said the source.
“Brad also wants a burger and fries station for him and the kids,” said the source.
“The point is that neither Brad nor Angie wants a stuffy affair. Their wedding will be spiritual and deeply moving. They want it to be a memory that Brad, Angie and the kids can hold dear for the rest of their lives!”
