That’s amore! Clooney weds in Venice

The couple was joined by their star-studded friends including Matt Damon and U.S. Vogue editor Anna Wintour

Oscar-winner George Clooney has wed Amal Alamuddin, a Lebanese-British barrister, a spokesman said Saturday.

“George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin were married today (Sep. 27) in a private ceremony in Venice, Italy,” Clooney spokesman Stan Rosenfield said.

Earlier, in preparation, Clooney and Alamuddin, were seen on a series of gondolas on Venice on Saturday, the Mail Online reported.

They were surrounded by friends and family in a series of events leading up to the Venetian wedding. While the pair will exchange vows on Saturday, they will not be legally married until Monday.

On Friday night, Lebanon-born Alamuddin stepped out in a long flowing red dress accompanied by her family and friends to head to what was reported to be a rehearsal dinner.

The 36-year-old British human rights lawyer was seen getting on a boat taxi in front of the exclusive five-star Belmond Cipriani Hotel with her husband-to-be.

The couple was joined by their star-studded friends including Matt Damon and U.S. Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who was reportedly invited because her publication had successfully bid to win the exclusive rights to the wedding photos.

A day earlier, the happy couple, along with super model Cindy Crawford and husband – and best man- Rande Gerber, head to a reception at a seven-star hotel, which the Mail Online said was paid for by Amulddin’s parents.

From the groom’s side, the invitees so far spotted are long-time producing partner Grant Heslov, Ocean's Thirteen co-star Ellen Barkin, Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso.

Clooney’s long-time friend Brad Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie are also expected to attend the nuptials in Venice, where Clooney and Alamuddin first met.
