George Clooney and his fiancée, Amal Alamuddin, have secured their marriage license, media reports said Thursday. And, the document reportedly reveals that the ceremony will take place in Italy.
According to reports, the formal notice of the wedding had to be put up on public display outside Chelsea Old Town Hall for 16 days and the couple had to visit the office and pay a fee of $59 each before signing the document. Although the couple has not made a formal announcement of the date of their nuptials, some media reports said that the wedding is scheduled to take place on Sept. 20 in Venice.
A team from Giorgio Armani’s Milan office made a visit to the Oscar-winning actor’s house to "start fitting" Clooney, who is preparing for his big day, and his groomsmen, Women’s Wear Daily, or WWD, a fashion news agency, reported.
WWD also said that “The Monuments Men” star has booked “an entire island” for the weekend’s festivities, while sources added that the event itself would be a small one. Some media reports also said that the wedding could take place at Clooney's villa by Lake Como in Lombardy.
As for the 36-year-old British-Lebanese lawyer, the bride-to-be is reportedly considering many designers, including Oscar de la Renta, for her wedding dress.
Clooney reportedly proposed to Alamuddin at his home in Los Angeles in April, after several months of dating. Clooney was previously married to television actress Talia Balsam and later got divorced in 1993. And, according to reports, following his divorce, the actor had vowed never to remarry.
Last month, the 53-year-old actor slammed Daily Mail over a “fabricated story” about his fiancé’s mother. The report had claimed that Alamuddin’s mother was against their upcoming marriage because Clooney is not Druze -- a small Middle-Eastern religion found primarily in Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and Syria.
