Sarko Weds

By Cernig

According to the Daily Mail, France's president has wed his model fiancee.
President Nicolas Sarkozy married his girlfriend, former model Carla Bruni, in a small ceremony today at the presidential Elysee Palace, the mayor who performed the ceremony said.

...It was a historic occasion, "the first time in the history of the Republic that a president has gotten married in office," as Lebel said.

About 20 people attended the ceremony, he said.

Lebel called it "a moment of family intimacy for the young newlyweds, of great simplicity and apparently a lot of affection between the spouses."
I applaud his understated handling of the marriage - most politicos would have turned it into a massive photo-op and PR exercize.
