In stark contrast to the Kimye wedding circus, Brangelina married in secret last week.

In fact, despite being one of the world's most famous couples, they managed to keep their nuptials private for almost a week.

So private that, along with the rest of the world, Jolie's father, Jon Voight, didn't know they had taken place. 

"That's nice," Voight said when America's Inside Edition broke the news to him.

In a separate statement to E!, the 75-year-old actor said: "It sounds like it was a wonderful wedding. It must have been very beautiful with the kids participating. I know it was during Emmy weeks and they were able to do it very quietly. I'm very happy for them."

Last night a spokesperson for the couple confirmed that, last Saturday, they tied the knot at a small chapel on the grounds of their wine chateau in the South of France.

Inside Edition reports that Angelina wore a long gown of antique lace and silk as well as a small gold locket once owned by her beloved mother, Marcheline Bertrand who died of ovarian cancer in 2007.

According to an E! News 'source', who said Angelina also wore a veil, "Brad gasped when he lifted it because she looked so stunning".

Jolie, 39, was walked down the aisle by her sons, Maddox, 13 and Pax, 10. Daughters, Zahara, nine, and Vivienne, six, threw flower petals from the garden, while Shiloh, eight, and Knox, six, carried the rings.

"The chapel smelt of rosemary and jasmine from the bushes outside the window and the sun streamed in the tint-stained glass windows," the source said.

After the ceremony, the 22 guests, which included Pitt's two siblings and parents, gathered in the garden for a pizza party.

The couple's six kids chose the three wedding cakes - one was a strawberry ice cream, another was a three chocolate gateau and a third had fresh cream and raspberries.

A rep for the couple told E! News

"On Saturday 23rd August 2014, in the presence of family and friends, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married in a small chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. It was a non-denominational civil ceremony...

"In the days before coming to France, and as citizens of California, Brad and Angelina filled out their paperwork and obtained a marriage licence from a local judge, who also travelled to France to conduct the ceremony at Chateau Miraval. They are therefore married under Californian law."

The date of the wedding marks 10 years since they met and fell in love on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith.

Pitt, 50, proposed in 2012.

"We're getting a lot of pressure from the kids," he told E! News at the time. "We didn't realise how much it meant to them and then, in getting engaged, how much it also means to us."

In Elle's June 2014 issue, Jolie spoke about their relationship. 

"You get together and you're two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy," she said. "After all these years, we have history - and when you have history with somebody, you're friends in such a very real, deep way that there's such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together."

In May this year Jolie also opened up about the couple's impending wedding.

"We talk to the kids about it once in a while," she told Good Morning America. "And one of them suggested paintball. And we thought, 'Well, different.' So who knows? You know, I think the important thing is that whatever we do, it's that the kids do have a great time, and we all...take seriously the love, and the connection between all of us. But also just get silly and do something memorable."
