Earlier this week we learned that Halle Berry and fiancée Olivier Martinez were planning to get married sometime this weekend and today we learn that the couple went and did just that. Halle and Olivier got themselves hitched at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France today in front of a select group of close family and friends … and no one else. The couple went to great pains to secure their wedding site from prying eyes but all of the big white sheets they put up to try and hide the wedding only managed to attract photographers. Halle was photographed making her way onto the chateau grounds in what looks to be a sparkling wedding dress. Click below to see a few photos and learn the known deets about Halle & Olivier‘s happy day.
Never say never. Halle Berry looks like a bride once more. The expectant Oscar-winner, 46, apparently wed French film star Olivier Martinez, 47, on Saturday at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, according to photographs showing wedding guests entering a white tent adjoining the chateau, which has a church on its grounds. Six years ago the actress told InStyle, “I will never, never get married again.” But four days ago the duo boarded a flight to Paris with Berry’s daughter, 5-year-old Nahla. The pair met in 2010 while co-starring in Dark Tide. Although the movie was a flop, their chemistry has been red-hot ever since their romance spilled off-screen.
“She has called him ‘The One,’ ” says Sophie Dulac, president of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, which the couple attended together in Martinez’s native Paris last month. “She’s said she never expected to meet this Frenchman, to fall in love like she has.” “They seem truly in love,” Dulac also said. “I’ve known Olivier very well and have never seen him like this.” The crinkle-eyed Frenchman proposed in early 2012 and presented Berry with an emerald engagement ring by Paris designer Robert Mazlo. In April, the couple revealed they’re expecting their first child together – a boy – early this fall, an unexpected joy Berry has called “the biggest surprise of my life.” The baby will join big sister Nahla, Berry’s daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey. Martinez infamously slugged Berry’s ex last Thanksgiving after Aubrey reportedly attacked him while dropping off Nahla for the holiday. This marks Berry’s third trip down the aisle. She was previously married to baseball player David Justice in the early 1990s and to singer Eric Benét in the early 2000s. This is a first marriage for Martinez, who previously dated singer Kylie Minogue.
Mazel tov to the happy couple! I had a feeling that the couple might get hitched once it was discovered that they were having a baby together … I guess they have decided that they want to spend the rest of their lives together in happily wedded bliss. Halle has been working the heck out of her burgeoning baby bump in recent weeks, I cannot wait to see how radiant she will look in her wedding dress. Let’s send all of our love and congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Berry-Maritnez today as they begin their new life together.
