Halle Berry, who is currently expecting her second child, has married the father-to-be Olivier Martinez in a small private ceremony in Martinez’s native France. The nuptials took place Saturday, July 13, at Chateau des Conde.
Security was tight at the event (see photo above) and the only photos o Halle Berry herself that have surfaced feature her riding in a car arriving at the ceremony:
Guests were photographed arriving and there appeared to be a photo shoot just behind a white tarp:
I can’t quite tell if the elaborate camera in the photo is a video camera or not — I suppose we will know soon enough if th wedding was caught on video 🙂
This was the third time down the aisle for Halle Berry, who is expecting a younger sibling for her five year-old daughter Nahla some time this summer. Berry and Martinez have been dating since 2010, but didn’t reveal their engagement until January of 2012. It wasn’t until a few months later that Berry, who had sworn she wouldn’t get married again after her second marriage to R&B singer Eric Benet (and tumultuous relationship with boyfriend and father of Nahla, Gabriel Aubry), finally addressed the engagement by delaring to Us Weekly, “Who knew? I swore marriage off, right?” she quipped. “Never say never, people!”
Here is a photo of Chateau des Conde where the wedding was held, which Wikipedia describes as “a private estate in Condé-en-Brie, Aisne, France, set in its park with three-hundred-year-old trees, on the Champagne route and 100 km from Paris.”
Congratulations to Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez! Or is it Halle Martinez now? (I hope it’s still Berry — always loved her first and last name combo!)
