Clooney prepares for Venice wedding

Published: Updated:

The world's most famous bachelor, George Clooney, welcomed more A-list stars to Venice on Saturday for his wedding to human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, with details of the long weekend bash kept as hazy as the morning fog over the Grand Canal.

The extravaganza, billed as the party of the year, was making the Italian city of gondolas and palazzos look like Hollywood on the Adriatic.

Actors Matt Damon and Ellen Barkin, model Cindy Crawford, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and others descended on Venice on Friday along with Clooney and Alamuddin, cruising the canals on speedboats that took them from one luxury hotel to another.
