Angelina's wedding dress revealed - veil was covered in kids' drawings

The first pictures have emerged of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's secret wedding at the family estate in the south of France.

Published in the latest issue of Hello! Magazine, out today, the shots reveal that Angelina's designer dress featured a veil covered in drawings by her own children.

"It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family," Brad and Angelina told HELLO!

The couple were married on August 23 in the chapel of Château Miraval, the family's estate in the French village of Correns.

The pair's wedding album also features in the upcoming issue of US-based People magazine as part of an international deal.

"As the incredibly natural photos show, the pair chose to marry in a ceremony on 23 August that was as simple as it was intimate," Hello! magazine said.

"here's the first look at Angelina in her breathtaking wedding gown by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace, the veil covered with artwork by her and Brad's children - Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox."

Angelina told the magazine it was "great fun putting it together", while it was also revealed that Brad wore a suit he already owned, and the pair let Pax make their wedding cake.

"Each child had a key role to play," People magazine reported.

"Eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, walked their mom down the aisle; flower girls Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, tossed petals gathered from the garden; and Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers. The kids also helped write their parents' vows. And Pax baked the cake! "

"It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter," the couple said.

"It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family."

"We are delighted and honoured to be able to share these captivating photos of Brad and Angelina on their wedding day with their children and other close family members and friends in attendance," HELLO!'s editor-in-chief Eduardo Sanchez Perez said. "We wish them all the very best for the future."

This is the second marriage for Pitt, who wed Jennifer Aniston in 2000. They divorced in 2005.

Jolie was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller for three years in the late 90s and to Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003.

Both Jolie and Pitt are working on movies. Jolie’s second directorial effort, the Second World War odyssey Unbroken, will be released in December in the US.

Pitt stars in Fury, also a Second World War drama and due out in the US on October 17.
