Planning a wedding can be stressful enough, but what happens when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt inadvertently disrupt your wedding day? Do you resign to the fact and chalk it up that they’re Hollywood’s most beloved power couple? Not if you’re Maria Arpa.
The London charity executive was scheduled to get married to fiance Mgarr ix-Xini on the beach of Gozo in October, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening. About three weeks ago she learned that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s film secured permits to film on that specific beach in Malta where she planned to get married.
The bride to be reached out to the BBC so she can alert Angelina Jolie so she’s aware that her filming schedule is ruining her wedding. Maria is simply requesting that Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt, “could find some way to accommodate us.”
She continued to tell the outlet:
“I’m sure Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would have no idea that they have ruined our wedding plans but I would like them to hear about this.”
Unlike many other fans of the Hollywood couple, Maria Arpa doesn’t wish to get an autograph or a photo from Angie and Brad, but has hopes of opening up a conversation about her special day.
“My only hope is I can have a conversation — not necessarily with Angelina Jolie herself — and know a message has gone from me to her. I don’t want to cause trouble. I don’t want to get compensated. I don’t want to stand in the way. I’d just like to have satisfied myself that I’ve done everything I can to have the wedding we’d planned.”
As stated, the location is in Malta — specifically the island of Gozo — where the film will be shooting. This project marks the couple’s first return to the big screen as a pairing since their 2005 spy action film Mr. and Mrs. Smith. While everyone has been very excited about the untitled project, we’re all just now learning that this woman’s wedding plans might be put on hold for the shoot.
Jolie told Extra that the film isn’t a huge film like Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Pitt and Jolie’s new film as described by Jolie is, “a very experimental, independent-type film where we get to be actors together and be really raw, open, try things.”
As for Arpa, the bride-to-be was never given an official permit to have her wedding on the beach, but she did receive verbal confirmation that it could take place. Unfortunately, we’re sure that verbal agreement doesn’t hold up much when it comes to the movie making business.
In closing, she said, “Why can’t I just ask another human being to help me out?”
