VIDEO: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donate their $5m sum from wedding photos to charity

Newlyweds Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie sold their wedding pictures for $5m.

People and Hello magazine paid the sum of $2.5m each for exclusive rights to their intimate wedding in Chateau Miraval in France, reported RadarOnline.

The couple are planning to give all the money to charity.

The website reported that the couple were well aware there would be huge interest in their wedding day and decided to donate the money to their foundation, the Maddox Jolie Pitt Foundation which supports numerous humanitarian projects around the world such as clean water projects and vaccines for children.

When their daughter Shiloh was born in 2006, the couple are believed to have made up to $6m from the first pictures – and this was donated to charity.

By the time their twins – Knox and Vivienne – arrived in 2010, the Maddox Jolie Pitt Foundation had been set up.

The couple wed two weeks ago in an intimate ceremony which had just twenty guests including Brad's parents.

Angelina's father Jon Voight did not appear to be aware the wedding had taken place until after the event.
