  • The first photos of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wedding have been released...

    It’s the wedding dress we never thought we’d actually see. The usually private Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have sold images from their big day to two of the world’s key tabloid mags (no doubt donating those megabuck fees straight to charidee) and Ange’s dress is SO not what we had expected.

    The couple’s six children were always going to play a huge part in the nuptials, but no one could have predicted that Ange would let them actually design her dress.

    Yes, you read right, Maddox (13), Pax (10), Zahara (9), Shiloh (8) and twins Vivienne, and Knox (6), clearly doodled up a storm in their playroom before Donatella Versace translated their pictures into a chic embroidered mural on the star’s veil. Considering that most parents would just stick them on the fridge, we see this as a pretty huge compliment to the kids’ creative talents.

    The gown itself is a simple satin strapless number, hand-made by Atelier Versace.

    ‘Versace is honored to announce that on August 23rd 2014 Angelina Jolie chose to wear a stunning Atelier Versace creation designed by Donatella Versace in occasion of her marriage to Brad Pitt,’ a statement from the brand reads.

    ‘For the special occasion Donatella Versace envisioned for Angelina Jolie a one of a kind custom-made Atelier Versace look: she was perfect in a white silk-satin Atelier Versace gown gathered at the bust with elongated train, detailed with the embroidered drawings of her children that got reproduced also on the silk veil. She accessorised her stunning creation wearing a pair of white Versace silk satin pumps.’

    Other details revealed in the new images include shots of the couple’s first kiss as man and wife and the fact that the children took on key roles – Maddox and Pax walked their mum down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne were flower girls, and Shiloh and Knox turned ring bearers.

    Angelina had previously hinted to People that her children would play an integral part in her wedding.

    ‘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 said back in May. ‘They will, in a way, be the wedding planners. It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other!’

    Well, now we know.
