Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni
Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni arrive in Egypt for their Christmas holiday in 2007.

Although some media reported this as a fait accompli weeks ago, it only happened Saturday 11 a.m. in Paris’s 8e arrondissement: President Nicolas Sarkozy and model–singer Carla Bruni have wed, on the ?rst ?oor of the Élysée.
   The source is more credible than others cited before: the Mayor of Paris, François Lebel, who told the AFP, con?rming it on the Europe 1 and RTL radio stations. Lebel of?ciated at the ceremony.
   Bruni wore white while Sarkozy wore a suit and tie, he said. It was a ceremony of ‘great simplicity and much love between the couple.’
   The ceremony itself took around 20 minutes, said Lebel.
   The witnesses were Nicolas Bazire and Mathilde Agostinelli for M. Sarkozy and Farida Khelfa and Marine Delterme for Mlle Bruni. Twenty-odd people—‘close family and several friends’—attended the wedding, according to Lebel.
   A few hours later, the Élysée issued its own press statement.
   Despite the happy day, Sarkozy was still at work: he spoke with the President of Chad, Idriss Deby, and held a crisis meeting about the rebel attack on the capital, N’Djamena.
   Sarkozy’s popularity ratings have been falling, and some connect them to his romance with Bruni.
