Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ‘to wed on boat’

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could tie the knot on a ship in Scottish waters on the advice of their son.
The couple are thought to be organising their nuptials to take place somewhere in Europe.
Apparently they have been making serious enquiries about tying the knot in Scottish waters aboard the Hebridean Princess.
The suggestion reportedly came from the couple’s adopted son.
“It was Maddox who came up with the idea of the ship,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “He came across it after looking back at photos of the Carnell Estate in Ayrshire, where they stayed and all loved.
“So now they’ve made enquiries into booking the whole vessel.”
The ship would accommodate plenty of guests. The couple would also have the option of moving it to different locations which could help to ensure their affair isn’t hijacked by paparazzi.
“It’s just what they’re after. It can hold up to 50 of their friends and family and serve as a traditional, romantic setting - all totally private,” the insider continued.
“Or they could always sail to a secluded bay off the Orkney or Shetland islands and have the ceremony there. The kids are all hooked on old British voyages, so they would love it. The fact that Maddox found it makes it more special.”
The duo originally planned on saying “I do” at their French chateau, it is claimed.
But it seems as if they may put down over $450,000 to enjoy the ship with a storied history.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II booked the Hebridean Princess in 2006 to celebrate her 80th birthday. The royal used again in 2010 for a vacation with her husband Prince Philip.
A spokesperson for Hebridean Island Cruises declined to confirm if Brad and Angelina had enquired.
“We have a very confidential relationship with a number of high-profile guests,” Ken Charleson, the company’s chief operating officer, said.
“I can’t confirm whether they have been making enquiries or not. But of course, they are more than welcome.”
