Sources indicate that a ceremony could take place in the 16th century chapel on the couple’s chateau in Correns, France. They say it will be a small, intimate affair with a handful of family and close friends.
This couldn’t be further away from Pitt’s £600,000 ceremony with previous partner Jennifer Aniston, held in Malibu, California in 2000 and attended by a range of celebrity guests.
Earlier this year, Pitt mentioned that the couple’s children have asked about marriage, saying: “It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”
Celeb watchers say this comment adds weight to the credibility of the rumours.
The couple had also previously stated that they wouldn’t consider tying the knot until gay marriage was legalised across America, but following a recent change in the law allowing gay couples to marry in New York, Pitt hinted that a wedding was something that could now be considered.
