George Clooney has previously been known as Hollywood's most seasoned bachelor having vowed never to marry but thats all changed. This weekend, the A-list heart-throb married his partner Amal Alamuddin in a lavish and beautiful ceremony in Venice, Italy and, needless to say, the star looked over the moon to have tied the knot.
The eye-wateringly beautiful couple (talk about a gene-pool lottery win, huh?) made their way across the globe to say their 'I do's' in one of the world's most romantic cities with close friends, family and some serious celebs in tow.
Amal looked every inch the stunning bride the day after her nuptials as she and George exited the luxury seven star (yep, that's actually a thing) Hotel Aman via a vintage water taxi.
Rocking a gorgeous white lace dress complete with beaded coral and pink flowers from designer Giambattista Valli, Amal really upped the fashion stakes as she laughed and cuddled into her new hubby George as the made their way past the masses of crowds who turned out to catch a glimpse of the newly-weds.
George held on tightly to his wife as they waved and smiled broadly at their fans; clearly in awe at the support of the well-wishers. At one point, the very dapper 53-year-old actor held Amal so close, we were able to see both of the couples wedding bands together.
While George's band was dark silver in tone with a high-shine finish, Amal's ring of choice is notably lighter in colour and incredibly thin; a very chic choice for the 36-year-old lawyer.
Her day after look may have looked somewhat bridal, but we can officially reveal that Giambattista Valli was NOT the designer who created Amal's actual bridal look. A rep for the pair has in fact confirmed that Amal's wedding dress was designed and created by the red-carpet go-to designer of the stars, Oscar De La Renta. As if her wedding wasn't dreamy enough...
No official photographs of Amal in her bridal glory have been revealed as of yet but, after whispers that they've already secured a deal with a hit US magazine to officially cover the wedding (its been said that they're going to donate all the money the make from the images to charity), we reckon it's only a matter of time before we get to see the white dress in question. Of course, we'll keep you posted on all of the details as soon as we get them...
While Amal looked gorgeous the day after her wedding, we reckon she looked just as sleek the day before the ceremony took place.
Walking hand-in-hand with George as they arrived in Venice, Amal looked sensational in a black and white stripe Dolce & Gabbana dress, ornate earrings from the same label, oversized sunglasses and sleek courts. We'd expect nothing less from the new Mrs Clooney.
The couple were joined by 90 guests in the Italian city who flocked from all corners of the globe to see the happy couple cement their status as husband and wife. Longtime pal of George, it's no surprise that fellow Hollywood hunk Matt Damon took time out from his busy schedule to make the long trip across the Atlantic to see his friend tie the knot. Joined by his wife Luciana Barroso, who wore a striking purple gown, Matt kept his black tux looking sleek by sporting a pair of statement sunglasses.
Also in attendance at the wedding of the year was Brit actress Emily Blunt who looked her usual polished and sophisticated self, sporting a striking aqua blue column dress complete with ornate beading and cool key-hole neckline.
With her hair styled in a side parting and fixed in a minimal updo, she's just given us the ultimate masterclass in wedding guest dressing. Nice work, Ems...
Emily wasn't the only fashionista to make an appearance at the party. Supermodel Cindy Crawford also made the trip with her husband Rande Gerber, who served as George Clooney's best man.
We told you it was a complete celeb-fest; what we would give to have been a fly on the wall at this wedding...
While hearts will no doubt be breaking all over the world in the wake of George being officially off the market, he and Amal look absolutely besotted with one another and we couldn't be happier for them.
Congratulations, Mr and Mrs Clooney!
