More than 100 guests, including Matt Damon, Sandra Bullock and Cindy Crawford, converged on Venice for the extravaganza, which began on September 26 and culminated on September 29 with a civil ceremony in which George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin were formally married.

Amal Alamuddin’s white lace gown, designed by Oscar de la Renta, was hand-stitched with hundreds of pearls and crystals. The off-the-shoulder, ivory-colored dress featured a floor-length veil.

The cost of the wedding also included the hire of water taxis to take guests to and from the various venues, the rooms in which they stayed at the five-star Hotel Cipriani, and the reception at the Aman Hotel on Saturday night, in which George Clooney and his British fiancée informally exchanged vows.


George Clooney flew in cases of his own brand of tequila and the couple gave iPods loaded with a special collection of their favourite songs to their guests as presents.

It was not clear who picked up the tab for the four-day marriage marathon.

The Italian media reported that the whole event was paid for by Amal Alamuddin’s father Ramzi, a retired professor at the American University of Beirut.

However, it seemed likely that George Clooney, one of the highest-paid actors in the world, would have chipped in too.
