Brangelina planning festive wedding?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are apparently planning a romantic Christmas wedding.

The Hollywood stars have been engaged for 18 months and raise six children together. Now that Angelina has recovered from her double mastectomy, the couple are eager to finally tie the knot.

“They love the idea of a Christmas wedding at their French home, Château Miraval, with a big roaring fire and lots of festive decorations,” a source told British magazine Grazia.

It has been claimed the ceremony will take place before Angelina has her second operation, to reduce her risk of ovarian cancer, next year.

The pair can’t legally marry in France, so they have decided to hold the formal ceremony in Hawaii. This was a special place for Angelina’s late mother’s Marcheline Bertrand.

“It means that her mother can be a part of the small ceremony on her favorite beach,” a source explained. “Then the main event will be a wintery-themed bash in France with all of their closest friends and family. Everyone, especially the children, is very excited.”

It has also been suggested that Brad, 49, has persuaded Angelina to have a pre-nuptial agreement.

Apparently the pair signed a 101-page document last month, which was drawn up by Brad’s legal team. According to insiders, they have decided to evenly split any money they make during their marriage.

“Angelina has always been a bit reluctant about having a pre-nup, but Brad has persuaded her it is for the best. He’s a romantic guy but also very practical, and give that they’re worth £200m between them, with six children and a load of property across the globe, it definitely makes sense,” a source revealed. “Both Brad and Angelina have been married before, so they know how messy a divorce can get.

“It’s even more important this time because there are children involved and Brad wants to cover all eventualities.”

Earlier this month, the pair sparked rumors they had married in secret after Angelina was spotted wearing a new ring on her wedding finger.

The 38-year-old actress was photographed showing off the latest addition to her jewelry collection while shopping in Bondi Beach, Australia.
