Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt's wedding tribute to Angelina's mother

Brad Pitt paid a special tribute to Angelina Jolie's late mother on their wedding day.

The 50-year-old star tied the knot to the brunette beauty in France last month and he made sure he honoured his bride's mum, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of ovarian cancer in 2007, by engraving a tribute to her in stone at the position where they stood to tie the knot.

Speaking to UK's HELLO! magazine, in conjunction with PEOPLE magazine in the US, a source said: ''Brad and Angelina wanted the ceremony to be both simple and personal.''

The pair tied the knot at their French estate Chateau Miraval in Correns because they thought the venue would be best suited for their children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

An insider added: ''They always wanted to have this wedding at the chapel at Miraval. That is their family home, it is where the children and they are at their happiest ... There was never a question of this ceremony taking place anywhere else.''

Angelina - who was with Brad for nine years before they married - also paid tribute to her mother on her big day by wearing a special necklace which once belonged to Marcheline.

A source told UK's OK! magazine: ''It was a small locket with a photo of her mother inside it.''

Angelina, 39, was flanked by her and Brad's two eldest children, Maddox and Pax, as she walked down the aisle to the music of 'Here Comes the Bride', which the 'World War Z' actor hummed as she made her way towards him.
