Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not getting married this weekend, contrary to reports.

It looks like the Hollywood couple will not be walking down the aisle in their luxury Chateau Miraval estate in the South of France any time soon, according to French officials who have put the rumours to bed.

Speaking to Reuters, Patrick Mareschi, deputy culture secretary of the village of Correns said: ''We don't know anything about it. Under French law couples have to get married at the town hall.

''Unlike with a religious wedding, there's no way a couple can hold a civil ceremony at their own home.''

Meanwhile, photo agency X17 further confirmed that the couple won't be tying the knot.

In a message on their website, they wrote: ''We sent an X17 photographer all the way down to the south of France - it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere - to check out Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's chateau Miraval to see just what's going on and ... drumroll, please . . . there's NOTHING going on!''

The A-list couple, who met on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2005 and have six children three of whom are adopted, announced their engagement in April.
