Mr & Mrs Clooney show off their wedding bands as the party goes on
ThESE are the first images of a glowing Mr and Mrs Clooney as they made their public appearance as husband and wife.
Human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin chose to wear a white lace dress with pink and coral flowers for her first day as Mrs C as the couple hosted a brunch for family and friends at Hotel Cipriani in Venice.
Their classy wedding in the city at the weekend was the Hollywood event of the year, with celebrity friends including Bono and Ali Hewson, Cindy Crawford and Matt Damon in attendance.
The star looked besotted with his new wife as the couple took a water-taxi through Venice's canals yesterday afternoon. They were happy to show off their elegant new wedding bands as they waved to the adoring crowds.
Long-term bachelor Clooney, dressed in a smart tuxedo, made a dramatic appearance in a motorboat at the hotel on Saturday.
Clooney and his friends - including actor Bill Murray, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and actress Emily Blunt - had sipped champagne at the five-star Cipriani hotel before forming a procession to the Aman Canal Grande Hotel.
With the pink sunset casting a gleam on Venice's most picturesque canal, Clooney rubbed his hands in sweet anticipation and disappeared into the hotel's tent-covered pier.
The bride was nowhere to be seen as it is believed the pair signed an exclusive magazine photograph deal for charity.
The celebrations continued well into the early hours of yesterday morning.
Clooney (53) and Lebanese Alamuddin (36), who got engaged in April, have not publicly divulged details of the weekend-long celebrations.
However, the couple are due to sign papers in a civil marriage ceremony at the 16th Century Cavalli Palace later today.
Clooney had vowed he would never marry again following his 1989-1993 marriage to Talia Balsam. He dated a series of models and actresses until meeting his match in Alamuddin.
The actor owns a villa beside Lake Como north of Milan, feels at home in Italy and is a frequent visitor to Venice.
