Four weddings and a Brangelina




Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning four wedding celebrations.

The couple - who raise six children together, Maddox, 12, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, seven, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - will kick-off their nuptials in Australia where Angelina is currently directing her new movie 'Unbroken'.

Although the 38-year-old actress in located in sunny Sydney they will head to natural wonder Ayers Rock - known as Uluru by the natives - in the Northern Territory in December, which is when Brad is due to celebrate his 50th birthday which falls on December 18.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "They are having the first party at Ayers Rock in Australia to tie in with Brad's 50th birthday in December.

"Angelina wants an aboriginal style ceremony at sunrise."

Brad and Angelina - who have been together since meeting on the set of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' in 2005 - got engaged in April 2012 and in early 2014 they will be legally wed in an intimate ceremony in either Los Angeles or New Orleans.

Following this they will head for the Bahamas, a place of importance to Angelina since the ashes of her mother Marcheline Bertrand - who died of ovarian cancer at the age of 56 - are scattered on the island.

The final party will be at their French estate, Chateau Miraval, where they will hold a reception for friends and family.

The source added: "After that wedding number three will be on a beach in the Bahamas where Angie's mother's ashes are scattered.

"And finally a glitzy reception will be held at the couple's south of France home next May to coincide with the Cannes Film Festival."
