War of the renovations: the race is on for Hollywood exes Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to spruce up their luxury pads ahead of their respective weddings

Planning a renovation? Take inspiration from two Hollywood couples, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, who are renovating their homes for their respective weddings - and they're spending a fortune!

Two of Hollywood’s hottest couples are giving their homes a makeover ahead of their forthcoming weddings.

After eight years together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are finally set to tie the knot – and what better place to do it than in their very own east Hollywood home? At the same time, over in Bel Air, Brad’s ex Jennifer Aniston is due to wed her actor beau Justin Theroux in another ceremony rumoured to be held at home.

Despite both couples remaining tight-lipped about the upcoming events, it is thought the Pitt-Jolie wedding, which sources reveal is set to happen ‘sooner rather than later’, will be held at their Los Feliz home.

The 5,338 sq ft property, which Pitt
purchased
for £1.1 million back in 1994, has one main five-bedroom house and lots of other outbuildings.

Work at the site is thought to involve the construction of new outhouses. Apparently the grounds now include a separate guest house, swimming pool, vineyard, wine cellar and projection room.

Aerial views of the pair’s house in Los Feliz reveal just how large the stunning compound actually is.

Brad’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, is also in the middle of a huge property renovation.

With her wedding to fiance Justin Theroux rumoured to be this weekend, the pair are desperate to get work finished on their Bel Air mansion as soon as possible.

Again, there are no details about where Jen is set to wed, but if the new landscaped garden is anything to go by, we reckon it could be at home too!

Jen’s construction
crew were seen finishing work in the grounds of the 8,500 sq ft, 3.5 acre property last week.

It is thought Jen is creating a large vegetable plot, Japanese-style garden and orange grove in the garden of the £14 million Bel Air home.

Other work is said to include renovating the swimming pool and patio area. Ariel photographs also show that an extension has been added to the main building.
