Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, considered one of the most powerful couples in Hollywood, married on 28 August in a secret ceremony at Chateau Miraval in France. The wedding took their fans by surprise, and the ceremony was attended only by family and very close friends.

Speaking about the ceremony, Jolie later told NBC's Tom Brokaw: "We got married with our children and they were part of the ceremony and they wrote some of the vows. It was all of us agreeing to be together and to just commit to this life together. Not because we had to, not because anything was missing in our lives... because we were absolutely sure we felt that much of a family. It was really lovely."
