Brosnan daughter's secret wedding

London - Pierce Brosnan's late daughter married in secret two weeks before she died.

Charlotte - who passed away aged 42 on Friday after a three-year battle with ovarian cancer - tied the knot with artist Alex Smith at an undisclosed location before her life came to a tragic end.

Charlotte was walked down the aisle by her stepfather Pierce, while her daughter Isla Bella, 15 - who referred to her mum as an "angel" in an emotional Facebook tribute - was her bridesmaid.

A friend who attended the ceremony told The Sun newspaper: "It was the most moving day of my life. It wasn't a day to be sad. Alex and Pierce were smiling broadly."

'Put Charlotte's name in the prayer book'

Staff at the 60-year-old actor's local church in Malibu, California, have paid tribute to his daughter and promised they'll put on a special service in her memory.

Sister Mary Prendergast, of Our Lady of Malibu Church, explained: "We are very sad to hear about Mr Brosnan's daughter passing and he is in all our thoughts and prayers.

"Mr Brosnan has attended the church for some years and his children have attended our school. Today we will put Charlotte's name in the prayer book and when he returns to America we will be here to offer him support and be able to plan a mass in Charlotte's honour, should he desire us to do so."

Pierce - who is devastated following Charlotte's passing - has thrown himself back into work as he tries to cope, jetting from London back to Belgrade, Serbia, to resume filming his new movie November Man on Tuesday.

He adopted Charlotte and her brother Christopher, the children of Pierce's first wife Cassandra, following the death of their father Dermot Harris in 1986.

He and Cassandra went on to have a son Sean in 1983 before her death, also from ovarian cancer, in late 1991.

Pierce has since married Keely Shaye Smith and the couple have two children, Dylan, 16 and Paris, 12.
