Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Marry in May — With Elephants and Ponies?
Not too long ago, there was a rumor that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had already gotten married in a secret wedding on Christmas day in the Caribbean's Turks and Caicos Islands.
But hold on, 'cause now Brad and Ange are rumored to be getting married at the end of May at their French estate Chateau Miraval, which has its own chapel. Their plans for the big day reportedly include topiary elephants cut into the grounds, with each one representing a member of the family. (!)
Lucille Michele, the couple's wedding florist, talked to the UK’s Grazia magazine about the big event. Brad is apparently taking quite a hands-on approach. "Brad flew in two weeks ago and has given a team of eight gardeners very specific clean-up plans, along with planting instructions that he drew up himself,” Lucille said (via Yahoo!). "Guests will travel past water fountains and Shetland ponies leaping as they go up the two-mile long drive to the house. Brad wants the guests to say, 'Wow!' the moment they sweep through the gates. … When the guests park, they'll see the family of elephants. Brad hopes it will make them smile. Apparently, the elephants were the children's idea. They want the wedding to take place just before sunset, so that as they say their vows the church will fill with fabulous red, orange and yellow light.”
She added that Brad wants what they plant to help local wildlife for generations to come. “He's spending in the region of £20,000 [around $30,000] on flowers and says they've decided no cut flowers, just planted wild ones, so that in the future, their great-grandchildren can see where they made a promise to each other."
That sounds … amazing, but does it fit with what Brad said about the wedding? In December, Brad told People his wedding would be soon, but he was planning for a “simple affair with Angie and the kids.” This doesn’t sound that simple, but it does sound fun, and certainly involves the kids.
What do you think? Do you hope this latest rumor is true?
