Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt got married on August 23, 2014

Angelina says marriage to Brad Pitt was very special because their children were present at the wedding ceremony

Actress-director Angelina Jolie says marrying actor Brad Pitt was an "extraordinary feeling."

The 39-year-old, who married Brad Pitt after nearly ten years of courtship, admits the ceremony was so special because it was shared with their children - Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox, reports

"As soon as it was all over, we all just changed clothes and hung out. It was just a very happy time. It wasn't this monumental change - we were just very happy and sure, and it's quite an extraordinary feeling to be so sure. It gives you peace," she said.

The Unbroken director says that she and Brad Pitt, 51, who split from wife Jennifer Aniston after meeting Angelina on the set of their 2005 film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, didn't feel pressure on their big day as they were already completely committed to one another.

She added: "What was lovely about it was that we didn't feel there was something missing or we needed to get married.

We felt so complete, and the commitment to children is one that you cannot walk away from, so we already had that commitment.

It was really that we wanted to re-commit and commit deeper in a way, and we wanted to celebrate that union with our children."
