It’s a story ten years in the making: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married in a small ceremony in a Chateau Miraval chapel in Correns, France on Saturday, RadarOnline.com has learned.

The Maleficent star, 39, and Moneyball hunk, 50, tied the knot in a nondenominational civil ceremony with a small group of family and friends witnessing the nuptials. The couple — who got engaged in April 2012 — received a marriage license from a California-based judge, who also officiated Saturday’s exchange.

The A-list duo made sure their children all played a chief role in the wedding, as sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, walked the actress down the aisle; daughters Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, sprinkled petals on the ground; and Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, were ring bearers, according to a rep for the famed duo.

The Fight Club star in Nov. 2012 called the idea of getting married “an exciting prospect.”

“Even though for us, we've gone further than that,” Pitt said in an interview with the AP. “But to concretize it in that way, it actually means more to me than I thought it would. It means a lot to our kids."

Pitt previously said he and Jolie, both tireless advocates for many social causes, promised they’d wait to wed until gay marriage was legalized.

“I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this county had the right to get married,” he told Ellen Degeneres in 2011. “We live in this great country that is about freedom.

“It is defined by our freedom and equality and yet we allow this discrimination to go on everyday and that’s not what we’re about — that’s not what makes us great. Until that is reversed, I just don’t get it.

Jolie famously began seeing Pitt while he was still wed to Jennifer Aniston, when the two starred in the 2005 film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, marking a sordid start to one of Tinseltown’s most celebrated pairings, with unending speculation as to when they’d actually make it official.

It’s the second marriage for Pitt, and third for Jolie, who was previously wed to Trainspotting star Jonny Lee Miller, and Bad Santa star Billy Bob Thornton.
