Brigitte Bardot’s Wedding to Actor Jacques Charrier (1959)

On 18 June 1959 Brigitte Bardot married fellow actor Jacques Charrier, her costar in Babette Goes to War.

The wedding took place in Louveciennes, France. The bride wore a coquettish pink gingham shirtwaist by Jacques Esterel as her wedding dress. When the actual marriage was to take place photographers burst into the registry office and formally asked Brigitte for permission to photograph the ceremony. Brigitte allegedly stamped her foot and shouted ‘Non, non, non.’ Then buried her face in her hands and burst into sobs.

Bardot and Charrier divorced in 1962. They had one son, Nicolas-Jacques Charrier, Bardot´s only child, born in 1960. Nicolas was raised in the Charrier family and did not maintain close contact with Bardot until his adulthood.
