Pitt takes over planning for Jolie wedding

Brad Pitt is taking charge of his wedding to Angelina Jolie, even down to planning the menu.

The 'Moneyball' actor is set to wed the Oscar-winning actress this summer at their home in the south of France and he is getting involved in every aspect of the big day as he wants the nuptials to be perfect.

A source said: "Brad's been doing extensive renovation on the house and is using a specialist in chateau restoration.

"Brad's spent over £10m already. Now he's offering hefty bonuses to workers to complete it by summer. He's even trying to organise an aeroplane landing site in the grounds for guests to come in by private jet - but that's proving rather tricky, what with permits and no-fly zones."

Brad - who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston - wants all the food and drink for the reception to be locally produced and has been very involved with the menu.

The source added to Grazia magazine: "Brad's been asking all the locals if they'll be able to source produce from the local area for the reception. It's certainly going to be a moment in local history.

"Brad's been tasting and looking up French dishes for weeks. He wants the perfect menu and, of course, the perfect wine to accompany it. That is all going to be locally sourced, too."

Brad has also asked Angelina's brother James Haven to officiate the ceremony as minister.

The source continued: "Brad thought it would be a nice touch to ask James to conduct the ceremony."
