The couple tied the knot on Saturday in a ‘down-to-earth’ ceremony at Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France. According to Us Weekly, the newly weds exchanged vows in a civil ceremony, before moving to the Chateau for a religious ceremony with around 60 guests in attendance.
An insider revealed: “White marquees were put up, and everyone was very discreet because it was a show business wedding. But generally it was pretty down-to-earth.” Despite being quite relaxed, the party – which featured a celebratory dinner, a fireworks display and dancing – went on into the night.
A source added: “They all partied long into the night.” The Cloud Atlas star has been married twice before –to baseball player David Justice and to R&B singer Eric Benet – and had sworn off marriage after her second ended in divorce. However, a close friend previously explained: “She trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He’s a keeper!”
Halle – who also has daughter Nahla, five – has shown no signs of slowing down her professional life despite her growing family, with recent news she was set for an independent comedy not long after the expected birth of her first son later this year. She previously said: “There’s a movie called Shoe Addicts Anonymous that’s a comedy. I’ve been wanting to do a rom-com for a very long time, and this is my chance. That could happen very soon after I have my next child. I started off doing rom-coms early in my career, but after Monster’s Ball everybody thought that’s all I wanted to do or should do.”
