Mr and Mrs Smith actor Brad Pitt has taken control of planning his wedding to co-star Angelina Jolie this summer because he wants the ceremony to be perfect.
The wedding, reportedly scheduled for August 11, will take place at Chateau Miraval, the Jolie-Pitt French estate.
Pitt, 48, who raises six children with Jolie, 36, is being involved in every aspect of the big day as he wants the
nuptials to be perfect, reported Femalefirst.
"Brad's been doing extensive renovation in the house and is using a specialist in chateau restoration.
"Brad's spent over $10 million already. Now he's offering hefty bonuses to workers to complete it by summer. He's even trying to organise an aeroplane landing site in the grounds for guests to come in by private jet - but that's proving rather tricky, what with permits and no-fly zones," a source said.
Pitt, who was previously married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston, wants all the food and drink for the
reception to be locally produced and has been very involved with the menu.
"Brad's been asking all the locals if they'll be able to source produce from the local area for the reception. It's
certainly going to be a moment in local history. Brad's been tasting and looking up French dishes for weeks. He wants the perfect menu and, of course, the perfect wine to accompany it. That is all going to be locally sourced,
too," the source said.
The Troy star will marry the Oscar winning actress this summer at their home in the South of France.
Pitt has asked Angelina's brother James Haven to officiate the ceremony as minister.
