While François Hollande and Julie Gayet got married in the greatest discretion in Tulle this Saturday, June 4, the identity of their witnesses has been revealed. And one of them is very famous.
The marriage between François Hollande and Julie Gayet was a nice surprise for many French people. In a relationship since 2012 – remember the famous story of the scooter – the former President of the Republic and the 50-year-old actress said yes in the greatest discretion this Saturday, June 4, in Tulle. It was the daily La Montagne which revealed that the two lovebirds have sworn loyalty forever. The marriage was pronounced by the mayor of Tulle and close friend of François Hollande, Bernard Combes.
But apart from two photos published by the newspaper, nothing else had leaked. The only things known were therefore the outfits of the two stars of the day: Julie Gayet got married in a white Hermès dress and François Hollande in an elegant suit. Another important point: the presence of Benjamin Biolay among the few handpicked guests. A good week after this beautiful day, the two lovers made their first official release in order to go and vote for the first round of the legislative elections.
Benjamin Biolay was Julie Gayet’s wedding witness
But François Hollande and Julie Gayet also took advantage of this day to give some details on the most beautiful day of their life as a couple to a journalist from La Montagne. Thus, readers were able to learn that Benjamin Biolay was not in fact a guest like any other: he was the witness of Julie Gayet, to whom he is necessarily very close. The other witness of the pretty actress was her best friend, a certain Catherine. For his part, François Hollande has decided to assign this role to Jean-Pierre Jouyet, and Jean-Louis Audrentwo longtime friends.
