Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have reportedly married in France, following the announcement of their engagement last April.
Halle Berry, 46, and Olivier Martinez, 47, tied the knot at the Chateau des Conde in Olivier’s native France on Saturday, UsWeekly reports.
A source confirmed to the publication that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are now officially husband and wife.
Halle Berry is reported to have arrived in a vintage car to the sprawling Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, where white tents had been erected to ensure the couple’s privacy.
The actress, who has been married twice before, reportedly wore a simple cream dress as she arrived in a white limousine.
A source said that a civic ceremony took place at 4.15 and then a religious one in a chapel in the grounds of the chateau at 5.30.
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez boarded a flight for Paris on Tuesday with Halle’s five-year-old daughter, Nahla, joining them.
Now it appears to be the case that the family were headed to the Renaissance chateau in the Burgundy countryside, around an hour’s drive south of Paris.
Despite Halle Berry previously telling InStyle magazine of her wedding: “I do know it will be very small,” it seems that may have been a white lie, judging by the fanfare surrounding the French estate where the wedding was held.
People Magazine has reported that among the 60 guests – thought to be close friends – were the groom’s mother Rosemarie and brother Vincent.
Dinner is said to have been served for the guests at an arbor and there was also a fireworks display.
This is the first marriage for French actor Olivier Martinez, who previously dated Kylie Minogue.
It seems to be a change of heart for Halle Berry, who once declared six years ago: “I will never, never get married again.”
However, Halle Berry laughed as her comments came back to haunt her just last week, when she was quizzed by impending nuptials, saying: “I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!”
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez began dating after meeting on the set of Dark Tides in August 2010, and they announced their engagement less than two years later – in March 2012.
The actress is currently pregnant with her first child with Olivier Martinez – a baby boy who is due sometime around October.
The couple announced their happy news in April this year, before the proud dad-to-be accidentally let slip that they are having a son.
“My son will be an American, but I remain French,” he told People magazine on June 12.
