George Clooney, 57-year-old actor, marries the budding lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36 in Venice, Italy, on Saturday! Clooney’s rep has further confirmed this to the press media. There are a multitude of reports that the couple exchanged vows at the world renowned location, the Aman Canal Grande luxury resort, which is the place where they were married by Walter Veltroni, the former mayor of Rome. Alamuddin, 36, was reported to have arrived at the Milan airport earlier the week, along with a fairly large box, a suitcase and a Stella McCartney garment bag, whilst Clooney, 53, had shared the wedding details while accepting a Humanitarian Award at Celebrity Flight Night in Tuscany, much earlier this month. He further added lines showing his love for his bride-to-be Amal.
This was the first marriage for Amal, who is an attorney and an activist often referred to as a Human Rights Lawyer, who is of a Lebanese origin. Whereas for George Clooney, this was the second marriage, with the last one being a 4 year relationship with the actress Talia Balsam ending in 1993. But this certainly does not mean that this was the only relationship he has had in two decades! Clooney has previously had long-term relationships with Sarah Larson who used to be a model, with an Italian actress named Elisabetta Canalis and also with Stacy Keibler, who got married in March and received a son in August as well! George had once stated that he would never marry again after his break up with his previous wife Talia Balsam, and stood on his word – up till he met Amal. No matter how many girls had he dated in the past, Amal certainly had something different which was able to ring a bell for George.
The ceremony took place on Saturday 7th, and was attended by multiple stars, like Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Bill Murray, Anna Wintour, Bono, and multiple other actors. The ceremony was also attended by Cindy Crawford, who came along with George in the last water taxi with her husband Randy Gerber. She was wearing a purple floor-length halter dress whilst Clooney and the men were dressed in tuxedos. This water boat was blocked by a passing cruise-liner and then by a water bus, which gave ample amount of time for dozens of boats carrying tons of photographers to catch up to George’s boat and click pictures. Police had to make loads of effort to keep these photographers away, whilst Clooney seemed to be unfazed by the paparazzi. He further waved at the cameramen swarming around his boat. On his arrival at the location, he could not find his bride-to-be Amal, anywhere in the crowd. Apparently, Amal’s arrival was the last, according to the witnesses. When George Clooney was asked “Is it really happening, George?” his reply was, again, a very entertaining one. The actor looked at his watch on his bare wrists and yelled back, “Yeah, right now.”
Cheers to the happily married couple!
