George Clooney finally ended his years of bachelorhood over the weekend. Yup, our favorite ER doctor is no longer ready to mingle as he and his now wife Amal Alamuddin sealed their love for each other in a very romantic wedding ceremony that took place at one of the most stunning cities in Italy – Venice.
The couple tied the knot on Saturday, September 27 in a private ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande Venice Hotel. The ceremony, although private, was an extravagant one and was attended not just by their families but also by well-known celebrity friends like Cindy Crawford, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Emily Blunt, Bono, Ellen Barkin, John Krasinski, Vogue America editor in chief Anna Wintour and many other personalities. Paparazzi and different media personalities also flocked to Venice to get a glimpse of this widely anticipated event. Clooney, 53, and Alamuddin, 36, exchanged vows under a simple but breathtakingly decorated arch of imported white roses. A 5-course dinner was served to the guests following the ceremony and everyone enjoyed the party until morning.
A day after their private ceremony, George Clooney and wife stepped out of their hotel room with glittering wedding bands and wide smiles on their faces, they hopped into a water taxi named “Amore” to go to another hotel for brunch and dinner with their wedding guests. Clooney sported a gray suit while the bride looks stunning in her white Giambattista Valli long-sleeved dress decorated with pastel flowers.
On Monday, Clooney and Alamuddin appeared at the City Hall of Venice for a short civil ceremony to comply with the necessities of making their marriage legal. The couple arrived at the city hall via “Amore” and spent about 10 minutes inside for the ceremony then went back to their hotel right after. It was reported also that they have flown to London afterwards.
The pair is considered one of the power couples to tie-the-knot this year. Amal Alamuddin is a well-respected lawyer with strings of powerful clients on her trail. She is a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers. She’s also known as an activist and an author. Clooney on the other hand is popular not only as an actor and filmmaker but also due to his highly publicized relationships with different models and actresses and other media personalities.
This very romantic wedding is obviously Clooney’s way of putting an end to his years of bachelorhood. It also made his vow of never marrying again null-and-void. The actor previously made a promise never to marry again after his marriage to Talia Balsam went haywire and officially ended by divorce in 1993.
