Wedding Week: Halle Berry Marries Olivier Martinez Whilst Jimmy Kimmel Weds Molly McNearey
It seems to have been the weekend for celebrity weddings. Halle Berry married Olivier Martinez in Vallery, France whilst Jimmy Kimmel tied the knot with Molly McNearey in Ojai, California.
Halle Berry married Olivier Martinez this weekend, according to reports in E! The ceremony appears to have taken place at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France. Photographs of guests arriving at the ceremony and the couple in their wedding car are likely signs the couple did finally tie the knot. Berry is a stickler for details and promised the wedding would only be "very small", as she said in an interview with InStyle magazine.

A continent away but on the same day (Saturday 13th July), Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearey had a larger ceremony with their 300 guests including Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, Matt Damon, Jennifer Aniston, Louis Theroux and Emily Blunt.
More details of the Kimmel-McNearey wedding are available. The ceremony took place in Ojai, California. A guest, speaking to US Magazine, said "the wedding was blast!" The speeches, made by Kimmel's brother John and McNearey's sister Kelly congratulated the couple. John said "Molly is an awesome addition to our awesome family" whilst Kelly said the couple were "the best people" she knows.
Berry's previous marriages have been to David Justice and Eric Benet. She also has a child with model Gabriel Aubry (they have a 5 year old daughter, Nahla, together). This is the first marriage for Martinez.

Kimmel has been married once before to Gina Kimmel with whom he has two children. He started dating McNearey, a writer on his comedy show, in 2009. They were engaged in August 2012 whilst holidaying in South Africa. This is McNearey's first marriage.
Berry and Martinez met in 2010 on the set of Dark Tide. Martinez proposed last year, despite Berry's claim in a 2007 InStyle interview that she would never marry again. The couple are expecting a baby later this year.
