Halle Berry was wed Saturday to French actor Olivier Martinez.

The Associated Press

The owner of the Chateau de Vallery, where the couple stayed with their 60 guests, said Sunday that the betrothal a day earlier ended with a dinner and an unusual fireworks display -- of water, fire and snow -- in the chateau gardens. A wedding cake followed.

Patrice Vansteenberghe said the actress -- 46 and pregnant -- and her 47-year-old husband "were very beautiful and very happy."

Berry's publicist, Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson, confirmed the marriage.

Vansteenberghe would not say who attended the gala wedding. But he said the bride was coy about her long, white dress, wanting to keep it from public view.

"All I can say is that it was a dress with a deeply plunging back," Vansteenberghe said. The event was "confidential" because "she wanted to be left alone on the day of her marriage," she said.

Berry, who has a 5-year-old daughter, is expecting her first child with Martinez. Although there was no sign of a baby bump when The Associated Press interviewed the Oscar-winning star in early April, Vansteenberghe said that "she is very pregnant."
