French president, former supermodel marry

PARIS – They had a glitzy, jet-setting courtship, but when it came time for the wedding, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and former supermodel Carla Bruni opted for a simple, classic ceremony.

Sarkozy, 53, and Bruni, 40, were married Saturday in a small private ceremony at the presidential Elysee Palace, less than three months after they reportedly first met, and less than four months after his divorce.

The newlyweds said in a statement only that they tied the knot “in the presence of their families in the strictest privacy.” The mayor who performed the ceremony filled in the details.

“The bride wore white; she was ravishing, as usual,” Francois Lebel told Europe-1 radio. The groom wore a suit and tie, and he “wasn’t bad either.”
