PARIS (AP) – American actress Halle Berry has married her fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez, at a weekend ceremony in a church near a chateau in France’s Burgundy region.
The owner of the Chateau de Vallery, where the couple stayed with their 60 guests, said on Sunday that the betrothal a day earlier ended with a dinner and fireworks display. A wedding cake followed. Patrice Vansteenberghe said Berry – 46 and pregnant – and her 47-year-old husband “were very beautiful and very happy.”
He said the bride’s long, white dress had a plunging back.
Vansteenberghe added that the event was “confidential” because “she wanted to be left alone.”
Berry’s publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, confirmed the marriage.
