The George Clooney Wedding Affair in Venice: Canal Rides & Lots of Amore

George Clooney’s marriage to Amal Alamuddin was a three-day affair, beginning last Saturday and ending on Monday with the civil ceremony at Venice’s City Hall.

For the entire weekend, Venice was stormed by paparazzi and fans trying to get a glimpse of the Hollywood star and his bride, as well as their celebrity friends, including Cindy Crawford, Matt Damon, Bono and Bill Murray.

George and Amal rode through the city's canals in a water taxi named 'Amore' - the Italian word for love.

The couple’s unofficial wedding was celebrated on Saturday at the seven-star Hotel Aman on the Grand Canal. The brief civil ceremony was held at the 13th century palace Ca' Farsetti on Monday.

For Monday’s wedding ceremony, the couple looked very elegant, with Clooney wearing a grey suit, and  Amal dressed in wide-legged cream trousers by Stella McCartney with a matching top and broad-brimmed hat.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
