Halle Berry and French film star Olivier Martinez, who are expecting their first child together later this year, are now also officially married! As gossip hounds had noted when Halle, Olivier, and Halle's 5-year-old daughter Nahla (with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry) were seen flying to Paris, they were indeed en route to France for a not-so-"secret" wedding. The first photo from the nuptials (right) shows Halle wearing what appears to be a white dress with silver sparkles, arriving in a white limousine.
Sources tell Us Weekly that the starry wedding actually included two ceremonies, in accordance with French law. Halle and Olivier first exchanged vows in a civil ceremony performed by a local mayor at around 4:15 p.m., and then went onto have a religious ceremony in the chapel on the grounds of the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France at 5:30 p.m. We also know that they hosted around 60 guests, including Martinez's brother, Vincent, and mother, Rosemarie.
White marquees were put up, and everyone was very discreet becuase it was a show business wedding. But generally it was pretty down-to-earth.
Not to mention festive, however! Wedding guests were said to have enjoyed a celebratory dinner, followed by a fireworks display, and dancing. A source says, "They all partied long into the night," revealing that the music could be heard until around 1 a.m. Sounds like a blast!
Surprisingly, six years ago, the twice-divorced movie star told InStyle, "I will never, never get married again." But soon after Halle's now-husband proposed, a source explained that "she trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He's a keeper!"
Sophie Dulac, president of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, which the couple attended together in Martinez's native Paris last month, seems to agree, having said:
[Halle] has called him 'The One.' She said she never expected to meet this Frenchman, to fall in love like she has.
Aww! Sounds like the third time could be the charm for Halle Berry. Congrats to the happy couple!
