Although François Hollande is a very famous figure in France, he still chooses simplicity for his “sober” marriage with Julie Gayet.
The politician invited only a dozen people to the party. For the menu, guests ate Beef Ribs from Toole Market.
Despite 4 children, Francois Holland married for the first time at the age of 67
François Hollande has just proven that marriage is never too late. In fact, on June 4, 2022, the 67-year-old former President of the Republic tied the knot with his sweetheart, Julie Gate.

These include his first marriage, although he is already the father of four children, including Thomas, Clemens, Julian and Flora, the fruits of his relationship with his ex-wife Segolene Royal, whom he never married.
François Hollande didn’t pass the ring on Valerie Trierweiler’s finger either, even if they went out together between 2010 and 2014.
On the other hand, for Julie Gayet, this is her second marriage, because in the past she was already married to Santiago Amegorina, the father of her two sons, Tadeo and Ezequiel.
Why did not marry Franoise Holland and Segolene Royal never?
François Hollande and Julie Gayet lived together for eight years before they said “yes” to life. However, this is minuscule compared to the number of years the former head of state spent alongside Segolene Royal.

And indeed, before breaking up in 2017, the former spouses had a thirty-year romantic relationship, in addition to sharing four children.
But despite their breakup, they remained on good terms, and they respect each other. Anyway, the sweetheart of the actress “Polly” confirmed in her book “Lessons of Strength”, which was published in 2018.

“We weren’t married. We had four kids and this family commitment was worth all the wraps,”
He said, if in the same year, the politician said:
Contrary to what has been written here or there, the fact that we did not marry François Hollande was not at all an ideological model or a rejection of anything.
In fact, for Segolene Royal, the reason why they were not married is particularly related to the problem of timing.
We were very early involved in political careers. It was complicated. And then, it was a time when weddings were more family affairs than couples.
However, she wanted to do so.
When Segolene proposed in front of the cameras – but she didn’t reply
When Segolene Royal shared the life of François Hollande, she was kind enough to be his wife. She even tried to do it at one point in front of the cameras, but to no avail.
In 2006 the politician took action. To do this, she invited the television cameras of the “Sagas” program to their house. At that time, the mother wanted us to photograph their daily lives.

She seized the opportunity to ask for the hand of the father of her children, saying:
Francois, will you marry me? But she was met with silence from her companion, and then said, “Look, he’s still hesitating.”
It must be said that François Hollande was embarrassed by the situation. When he didn’t find an answer, he tried to turn around, and finally said “No, that’s not what I mean… I’ll answer you after the show.”
Then everyone knows the rest of the story.
It is Thomas, son of Franoise Holland, who introduced Julie Gayet to his father
Now, François Hollande swirls the perfect love in the arms of Julie Gayer. But before living out this beautiful romance, the couple faced criticism from people first.
It all started on January 10, 2014. On that day, Closer magazine shared a photo of the two love birds together. Of course, this sparked controversy, since at that time the former head of state was still in a relationship with Valery Trierweiler.
He even initially denied their relationship, until he decided to officially break up with the French journalist.
It was only after the two lovers announced their relationship. A relationship that likely would not have seen the light of day had Thomas, son of François Hollande, not stepped in.
And it was the latter who actually made the actress of the movie “What is this family?!” To his father, since 2007, the young man asked her, to support his mother.
So Julie Gait decided to start over, in 2012, except this time she backed the Roanne native. Therefore, since then, they have become inseparable, although their romance was not always clear to some people, including the children of Ségolène Royal.

The first details of their simple wedding Tol
For those who do not know it yet, the marriage of François Hollande and Julie Gayet took place in their hometown of Tulle. And all this happened in private. Details of the ceremony were revealed only a few days later.

So we know that for their wedding, the two love birds chose simplicity. To do so, they invite their loved ones to their home in Tullist.
For the occasion, the couple had not hired a caterer, and on the menu they were content only with “beef ribs bought at Toll Market,” as the former mayor of Seven Hills noted.
As for the wedding bouquet, it was bought by the florist in Tulle.
Who were their guests?
Little information has been revealed regarding the wedding guests. We only know that dozens of people answered present, including the four witnesses.
As the groom was captured, Jean-Pierre Jouyet, his former general secretary at the Elysee, and his “high school friend” Jean-Louis Audrain, were his witnesses, while there for the bride were singer Benjamin Beaulay and her best friend Catherine.
According to the women’s magazine, the couple’s children also attended the ceremony.
Their 350 square meter house where they celebrated their wedding
The house where François Hollande celebrated his marriage to Julie Gayer is located on the right bank of the Correez River. This late 19th-century building, with an area of 350 square metres, is remarkably located in a park not far from Vidale Street.
Few people probably know this, but the former President of the Republic acquired this beautiful residence in Toul, by signing a “compromise” for sale. He himself disclosed this information.
For information, this property was the property of the department, before he put it up for sale in 2010. Now, this “beautiful home” but without “sea view” practically belongs to Julie Gate’s husband, although it still requires refreshments slight.
