Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez got married at the Chateau des Conde in France

Well, the reports last week were right! Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez got married yesterday in France. I guess they scouted locations for the wedding in June, when Olivier was a judge for the Paris Film Festival and Halle came along for company. Us Weekly was the first to confirm the Saturday nuptials, and it seems that they had the ceremony at Chateau des Conde. There are some photos from the locale at the end of the post – it looks more like an old church rather than a “chateau” but there is some kind of tent set up, so maybe the vows were said indoors and then they had the reception in a tent?

Halle and Olivier flew to France with Nahla, although there are no photos of her in France. I suspect – and sincerely hope – that Gabriel Aubry authorized this whole thing. Meaning, I hope it was okay with him that Halle took Nahla out of the country, and hope he has some kind of guarantee that Halle and Olivier will return to America. For Olivier’s part, he seems to have made his peace with living in LA, and he seems fine with having an American baby. I personally think that this wedding – the timing of it – was a rush-job, and perhaps Olivier’s way of shoring up his parental rights in advance. Basically, if and when Olivier and Halle split, Olivier will have an easier time asserting his custodial rights with his son than Gabriel ever had with Nahla.

Anyway, congrats to Halle and Olivier. I hope the third time’s the charm.

    Wow…I didn’t think she would go through without it. He seems like he would be such a control freek. Oh well I hope she has a pre-nup and he better treat both Halle and Nahla right. Congrats…I guess.

    • Elodie says:

      Well he probably didn’t want the baby out of wedlock, hence why they got married. He is still a pied-noir after all.

    • Spooks says:

      Well, congrats to them. Personally, I kinda think a third wedding should be a bit more quiet, but that’s just me.
      And, where are his eyes? He used to be sort of handsome, what happened?

      • lisa2 says:

        Maybe it is a bit bigger because it was his first marriage. Maybe he wanted it to be a bigger deal for his family and friends.

        Who said the wedding wasn’t quiet? Kaiser certainly didn’t say it was a huge wedding. All the other outlets announcing the wedding have all stressed the ‘quiet’ nature of the nuptials.

        They were married by the major of the town, and the only ‘wedding guest list’ mentioned at other outlets are Nahla and family and Halle’s dress was probably more for Nahla’s benefit than hers. So what’s ‘loud’ about their wedding?

    I guess congratulations are in order but I can´t stand her. Sorry to say that but this divorce drama is going to be epic.

    • Meredith says:

      True enough. Both her previous marriages (and previous relationships) have ended so badly with her doing so much trash talking… I can’t see how this one will end any differently. She doesn’t seem to have “grown” as a person or learned from her past “failures” because according to her, it was always the other person’s fault.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Meredith, who wrote: “True enough.

        Was it really only “according to her” in Halle’s past relationships? Did Halle make up media reports of Eric Benet ‘admitting’ to cheating on her with other women during their marriage? She actually defended him when news of his cheating came out during their marriage and gave him the second chance he asked for (because he supposedly was a sex addict) until news of his cheating again came out just before she won her Oscar (sound familiar? Sandra Bullock went through a similar thing). She didn’t make up his cheating, it actually happened and he admitted to it. But hey, don’t take my word for it … you can certainly Google it all and read if for yourself.

        There was obviously something more going on in Halle’s relationship with Gabriel Aubry than we know of, and absolutely no news outlet (including those based in Canada) seem willing to print anything at all about ‘Gabriel Aubry’s’ past relationships and how they ended. So everyone dumps all the ‘crazy’ on Halle.

        Halle has HUGE daddy issues and truly seems to pick men like her father … who dogged her mother and left the family when Halle was four years old. Halle’s mother has said that Halle can go to any city in the world and choose the very worst man in the city to fall in love with.

        I’d feel more comfortable with the ‘love’ people here have for Gabriel Aubry if someone, anyone, could post news of his past relationships.

  3. Elodie says:

    Congrats Halle and Olivier.

    Well er… Hopefully third time is the lucky charm, BUT…

  4. stella says:

    Congrats to the newlyweds. I think they really love each other. Haters are gonna hate.

  5. Mika says:

    Congrats to Halle and Oliver!

  6. Alexis says:

    Congrats to them. They seem well matched and in love. I hope they have many years of happiness. *dodges tomatoes*

  7. lisa2 says:

    Congrats..

    I thought you had to live in France for a period before you could marry there. But maybe because Olivier is French it is different.

    just saying. I don’t like Halle’s hair. It looks so dry and it makes her look older. Not sure why because I usually lover her short do. I bet that is going to be a cute baby.

  8. Ollie says:

    i give it 3 years…. maximum

  9. Catherine Anne says:

    Actually if you google it the Chateau is a huge beautiful facility and the church is part of the grounds. The Chateau is amazing. It must have been very beautiful even though I am not a fan of hers. Best wishes though.

  10. Mika says:

    I like the fact that this was done discreetly. Other celebrities take note – the media only prints what YOU want them to print – cough Kardashian cough.. We never saw Halle’s invites, her dress, or heard “friends” tell of what was on the menu or other tidbits. Well done Halle and Oliver for being discreet and classy. We may hate Halle’s crazy but at least let us admire her ability to keep some things private.

  11. Mandy says:

    Yeah, probably not. We’ll see what these two are up to in a couple of years…if that long!

  12. dorothy says:

    Guess we’ll gear up for the ultimate divorce and nasty custody battle that follows in a couple of years. Sad.

  13. Deidre says:

    Evenly matched, bully boy will dare to curb and crush her and she will eventually annihilate the beast who spawned her son.. but it’s done for a good cause..so daddy Gabriel can’t succeed once she forcefully tossed him out, besides hog all the spotlight, enjoy dad day out Nahla and perhaps secretly make a honest living while he gets more favorable publicity, while he is a direct reminder what a nut-cake she is. What a humanitarian and great brain the suffering sacrifices she makes to get her way….

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      What are you talking about? Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry weren’t married, so why ‘would’ she have to force him out? Nothing, absolutely nothing is, or has, kept Gabriel Aubry from working … he just doesn’t want to work. It seems to me that he wanted Halle to take care of him, and she wasn’t having that. So he went after her money so he wouldn’t have to work … and he doesn’t, who would on $240,000.($20,000 per month) per year?

      In spite of what you think, Halle has had reason to end her other relationships. I really think Gabriel is bad news, and it will come out sooner or later.

  14. Deidre says:

    Then she’ll marry someone like Janet Jackson did.. um a Qatari billionaire boyfriend and live sequestered with her kids in a foreign land.. with no bother from any contrary laws making her behave nicely with Gabriel.. free at last., no more films, endorsements and promo’s..! So there .. lose-ahs!

  15. judyjudy says:

    It will be interesting when he fights to keep his baby in France. Nahla stays in US with her Dad, new baby has to stay in France with its dad. Poor Halle. Whatever will she do? Wah-waaaaaah.

  16. slightly peeved says:

    Well, they are married under US law with a church wedding, but if they didn’t have a civil ceremony as well, they are not married under French law.

    • Enny says:

      It wouldn’t be legal in the U.S., either. A marriage is valid in the U.S. only if it was legally valid where it was performed. So, if they didn’t do the civil part, it wouldn’t be valid here, because the marriage wasn’t legally sufficient where it took place. Hence, even if the ceremony would have been okay on U.S. soil, if it wasn’t legal in France, the marriage won’t be considered legal here, either. Put more simply, if a couple gets married, and they comply with all requirements to marry in the country where they are, then they won’t be denied the privileges of being a married couple if they move to the U.S. But, if they are never legally married when abroad, for instance they don’t have a civil ceremony in France, then they were never married at all under the laws of France, so they don’t suddenly become married when they get to the U.S., they were never married in the first place, even if technically the ceremony would have been valid in the U.S.

    • Ivy says:

      If you read the articles, you would have known that they had the civil union first and and hour later the church ceremony.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Slightly Peeved, who wrote: “Well, they are married under US law with a church wedding, but if they didn’t have a civil ceremony as well, they are not married under French law.”

      I don’t know exactly why Kaiser didn’t include this since every other outlet, including ‘E’Online, has reported that Halle and Olivier were married in a ‘small’ private ceremony by the Mayor of the town. Doesn’t that make it a ‘civil’ ceremony?

    • TrustMOnThis says:

      American law also requires getting a license from the government. You can’t just walk into a church and be legally married. Not even in Vegas.

  17. janie says:

    I’ve always liked her, and I wish them both the best.

  18. ErinINPitt says:

    Countdown to Olivier being a “racist” who doesn’t deserve to know his child because he “can’t understand black” begins now……

  19. DiamondGirl says:

    Oh please tell me those ever-present jeans can actually be removed from his body so he didn’t wear them to the wedding.

  20. Tessa says:

    I hope their marriage fails. They’re both shady shady people.

  21. Kaboom says:

    So the countdown has started until he throws in the towel on her crazy.

  22. Jennifer12 says:

    Of course the reports were right. They came straight from Halle.

  23. Isabel says:

    And then they divorce and Halle cries that Olivier beat her on a regular basis. In short; she is gonna treat him the same she treated the father of her daughter as soon as the relationship ends. Sure she is gonna give birth in France so she has leverage to move there with her first kid.
    Bitch.

    • jwoolman says:

      I don’t think she has to give birth in France. The kid will have dual citizenship if she files the right papers, no matter where she gives birth. The French end will be simple if the father is a French citizen, she just has to go to the French consulate in California. The US end will be more difficult if she gives birth in France, much easier to just have the kid born in the US because the US government tends to snarl a bit with dual citizenship cases and the process tends to be more difficult (unless the rules are different for the rich and famous). But the French don’t have a problem with it.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        Halle is a U.S. citizen, so it won’t matter where she gives birth, the baby will still get U.S. citizenship. She just needs to file a report of birth abroad. I was born overseas (to American parents) and I’ve never had a problem with my citizenship or getting a passport.

      • Amelia says:

        The US doesn’t recognize dual citizenship. Nif you have a parent who is an American citizen, or you are born on American soil, you are an American. But one citizenship, one passport, etc.

  24. womanfromthenorth says:

    OMG Why does she have to Wed all of them. What a cluster F waiting to happen. Feel for her kids the most.

  25. Renee says:

    Couldn’t care less. Girl’s a tool. And her husband is just a total ass.

  26. skuddles says:

    That is going to be one short baby.

  27. Ginger says:

    I’m a sucker for a baby and a wedding. I know this couple is kinda crazy but I can’t rain on their parade too much. I also hope Halle got permission from her daughters father as you are legally supposed to do. As a co-parent with my ex-husband, these sorts of things are very important. How fun to get hitched in France. Must be nice. That’s all I’ve got.

  28. Chutzpah says:

    YEARS – poor Kylie Monogue wasted waiting for this asswipe to marry her.

    She dodged a bullet.

    And he walked right into one.

  29. homegrrl says:

    doesn’t this man look so different? I’m not for man obsessing over huge muscles, but so many men have gone with this skinny look. Hmmm. Yogathing, I guess, it’s those damn skinny jeans, made our man asses get flatter.

    I just finished up with a french guy. Best sex I ever had, smouldering, with that dry accurate humour too. But I couldn’t take the condescending conceited crap. It’s like, stay in france with yer stinky cheese or shaddyuppy. Hope this french stays just smouldering for Halle. Love her.

  30. Elisabeth says:

    this is a tsunami of crazy getting married. I guess 3rd times a charm…right?

  31. d b says:

    wish them the best and that they go the distance. They said Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas wouldn’t make it either

  32. stella says:

    I hope Halle and Olivier prove all the haters wrong and stay together. I applaud Halle for living her life and not giving up on love.

  33. Sam H x says:

    I hope for the sake of Nahla and her half sibling, this marriage works out. It was bad enough to put Nahla through a vicious custody battle. Let alone have 2 children be put through another one and a divorce. I hope they manage to avoid it. x

  34. Oyn says:

    Elsa Pataky really dodged this bullet by him being a drunk serial cheater with her. Same with Kylie too I guess.
    Still wearing the same jeans when with Elsa! lol

  35. Maritza says:

    I truly hope this marriage works out for her. I thought she and Olivier wouldn’t last a year, glad I was wrong.

  36. JulieM says:

    I’m in the “this will end badly” camp, but I do wish them the best. I’m amazed she was allowed to take Nahla out of the country. Let’s see if she brings her back. And now, maybe, Gabriel will be allowed to take his daughter to Canada to sample her other cultural heritage.

  37. Jayna says:

    One of the prettiest pregnant women in Hollywood. Dressed just right and love the short hair with long swept-over bangs. Best wishes to them.

  38. Nibbi says:

    He was drop-dead, smoldering, jaw-breaking, panty-dropping absolutely white-hot sexy in Unfaithful with Diane Lane.

    Compared to that, looking at him now, I just don’t see it. He hasn’t aged well at all.

    And yeah, it kinda bugs that no one else seems to be picking up on that, while if he was a woman, that’d be all we’d be talking about, along with what plastic has been/ shouldn’t have been had.

    Equal access condemnatory superficiality, I say…
