Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly planning an extravagant wedding to be held at the couple's Chateau Miraval estate in the South of France, and their florist recently shared exclusive details.
Lucille Michel, who works as a florist, opened up about Pitt and Jolie's wedding day ceremony in an interview with Grazia magazine U.K.
"Guests will travel past water fountains and Shetland ponies leaping as they go up the two-mile long drive to the house," Michel told Grazia.
"When the guests park, they'll see the family of elephants. Brad hopes it will make them smile," he continued adding. "Apparently, the elephants were the children's idea."
The couple's six children Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne will all play individual roles during the ceremony, with the three girls set to be flower girls.
"They want the wedding to take place just before sunset, so that as they say their vows the church will fill with fabulous red, orange and yellow light," Michel said.
"Lawns have all got new sprinkler systems in, so they'll be green and lush for the big day. Brad wants the guests to say, 'Wow' the moment they sweep through the gates," he added.
In February 2012, photographs revealed what appeared to be the construction of a large white reception hall being built behind a chapel on the couple's $60 million dollar southern France estate. The wedding is reportedly scheduled for May.
"It's a place that they all absolutely adore. With the vineyards and the gorgeous wide-open spaces, they will really be able to create a dream wedding, right on their own property," a source previously told OK! magazine of their French property.
The wedding, which will mark Jolie's third marriage and Pitt's second, is scheduled to be a small, low-key event inside their 35-bedroom French Château Miraval.
On Nov. 27, it was claimed that Jolie's stylist had collected the couple's wedding rings from Neil Lane jewelers, and that the the actress reportedly selected a wedding dress designer during the same month. American fashion designer L'Wren Scott will reportedly create a custom wedding gown for Jolie, 37.
"She's been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn't important to her ... Of all the people she's met with she feels L'Wren is the one that understands her body the most," an insider previously told Grazia magazine.
"Angelina wanted someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns. L'Wren is famed for designing clothes to suit taller, thin women like herself," the source went on.
