Halle Berry Marries Olivier Martinez In Secret French Chateau Ceremony
Actress Halle Berry has married for the third time with Olivier Martinez in a highly secretive ceremony in France.
The rumours were true! An expectant Halle Berry has wed French actor Olivier Martinez after being snapped catching a departing flight on Wednesday with Berry's daughter Nahla in tow. The couple reportedly had wanted to leave for France for good, taking Nahla with them to start their new family in Europe but a legal tussle with Berry's ex and Nahla's father, Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, prevents them from putting down roots outside the US.

The pair are now believed to have gotten hitched at a chateau in Vallery, Burgundy - a pictureseque region in central France, according to French Pure People magazine, via People Magazine. Apparently the extremely exclusive ceremony took place at the breathtaking Chateau des Conde, after a civil union was held in the village. It is not known what ties Berry or Martinez have with the small wine-making town but a pregnant Berry was pictured wearing a sparkling white gown in a vintage Citroen car that had been decorated with white veils. Aside from exchanging vows, privacy was top of the pair's agenda with police assembled to keep onlookers away from the venue and security staff holding up white sheets to prevent any photography. Only 60 guests were in attendance to enjoy an intimate, romantic ceremony followed by dinner, and a fireworks display in the evening to herald the couple's new chapter.

Martinez and Berry met during the filming of Dark Tide - a shark drama flop in which both had lead roles - and began dating soon after. Berry, who has been married twice before to baseball player David Justice and R&B artist Eric Benét, can be quoted from 2007 saying she'll "never, never get married again", but it looks like love has struck the 46 year-old three times, with fingers crossed that this will be her third time lucky. After her engagement in early 2012, Berry voiced her surprise at embracing a third trip down the aisle: "Who knew?! I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!"
Berry stars in upcoming crime thriller The Call which will be released in September this year whilst Martinez's historical drama The Physician will be released this December. The couple are expecting a son together, due in Autumn.
