Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have married in France, a spokesman has confirmed.

Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, were wed in a small chapel in Chateau Miraval in a private, nondenominational, civil ceremony attended by family and friends.

The couple, whose relationship began after they starred together in the 2005 film Mr and Mrs Smith, have been engaged since April 2012.

The BBC's Colin Paterson explains why they decided to tie the knot now.
