Etienne Cardiles’ marriage to the late Xavier Jugelé is attended by Paris mayor Hidalgo and former president Hollande.
The city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, and the former French president François Hollande attended the wedding on Tuesday of Etienne Cardiles to the late Xavier Jugelé.
Jugelé, 37, was shot dead on 20 April while on duty three days before the first round of France’s presidential election.
He had campaigned for LGBT rights within the police service.
At a moving remembrance ceremony led by Hollande on 25 April, Cardiles said the killer would “not have my hatred”, echoing the words of the husband of a victim of the November 2015 attacks in Paris.
“I have no hatred, Xavier, because it is not like you and does not fit with what made your heart beat nor what made you a guardian of the peace,” Cardiles said.
Jugelé was the fifth police officer killed in terrorist attacks that have claimed more than 230 lives across France since January 2015.
Hollande posthumously made him a knight of the Legion of Honour, one of France’s highest honours.
