So Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie AREN’T getting married this weekend. Humph

They'd been rumoured to be getting hitched this weekend at their county estate in the south of France but now it seems that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wedding is off.

But before you worry that Hollywood's golden couple have pulled a Katie and Tom, fear not, it's all down to a French law.

Brad and Ange had been hoping for a civil partnership instead of a religious ceremony but due to the restrictions of French laws, they would not have been permitted to hold it in their home.

Patrick Mareschi, the deputy of culture secretary of Correns, where the couple's estate is located, explained: "Under French law, couples have to get married at the town hall."

"Unlike with a religious wedding, there's no way a couple can hold a civil ceremony at their own home."

Rumours that the couple were to be married this weekend had been spreading like wild fire for the past few weeks with Brad's best friend and Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney also being rumoured to attend.

Here at omg! HQ, we had been gearing up to bring you all the latest from the star studded wedding.

Thankfully, we weren't quite as eager as photo agency X17 who had sent a photographer to the south of France to capture moments from the day.

Posting on their official website, the agency left a sarcastic message to their clients.

"We sent an X17 photographer all the way down to the south of France - it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere - to check out Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's chateau Miraval to see just what's going on and ... drumroll, please ... there's NOTHING going on!"

Oops.

Brad and Angelina announced their engagement last April. As for the when they will wed is still anyone's guess.
