Brad Pitt has reportedly arranged for a number of animals to entertain guests when he marries Angelina Jolie.

The Hollywood couple are rumoured to be tying the knot at the end of May in the South of France.

A florist who works near the A-listers' mansion Château Miraval, has confirmed that the wedding is going ahead.

Lucille Michel shared details of the preparations Brad has ordered for the big day.

"Brad flew in two weeks ago and has given a team of eight gardeners very specific clean-up plans, along with planting instructions that he drew up himself," Lucille revealed to British magazine Grazia.

"Guests will travel past water fountains and Shetland ponies leaping as they go up the two-mile long drive to the house. Brad wants the guests to say, 'Wow!' the moment they sweep through the gates."

As well as miniature horses, Brad has allegedly also enlisted larger animals to entertain guests.

Greeting the lucky wedding goers will be elephants, which were requested by the couple's children Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.

"When the guests park they'll see the family of elephants," Lucille added. "Brad hopes it will make them smile. Apparently the elephants were the children's idea."

The 49-year-old actor's plans also include a lavish floral display.

Lucille explained that Brad wants wild plants to feature as part of their nuptials.

"He's spending in the region of £20,000 on flowers and says they've decided on no cut flowers, just planted wild ones, so that in the future their great-grandchildren can see where they made a promise to each other," Lucille finished.
