Fans of George Clooney can relive his Sept. 27 wedding to Amal Alamuddin with this week’s issue of People. The newlyweds sold the rights to their wedding photos to the magazine for distribution in the United States and to Hello! magazine for distribution internationally.
The special issue of People magazine features 25 exclusive photos from their Venice, Italy, wedding – including the celebrity guests, “sweet candid moments” and the “emotional ceremony.” But those curious about Alamuddin’s wedding dress don’t need to look further than the cover of the issue.
George Clooney and his blushing bride are pictured on the cover of the magazine in an intimate shot. Clooney, dressed to impress in a black tuxedo from Giorgio Armani’s Made to Measure collection, has his hands placed on Alamuddin’s hips. A smile can be seen on his face as he leans toward his new wife. Alamuddin is pictured in her stunning custom Oscar de la Renta French lace gown. According to E! Online, the off-the-shoulder dress with full circular train featured “hand-embroidered pearl and diamanté accents.” The bride completed the special ensemble with a floor-length veil featuring lace detail. Bouquet in hand and long brunette locks cascading down, Alamuddin leans toward Clooney with an equally vibrant smile.
Alamuddin’s wedding gown was only one of many gorgeous outfits she donned over her wedding weekend. On Friday the 36-year-old attorney wore a red printed Alexander McQueen dress for her bachelorette party. The Daily Mail reports that she dined with family and friends at the five-star Belmond Cipriani Hotel on the island of Giudecci.
On Saturday the bride wore her custom Oscar de la Renta gown while exchanging vows in front of approximately 100 guests at the Arman Canal Grande hotel. According to E! Online, the couple decided on the location because Italy holds a special place in their hearts.
“We met in Italy. We have a home there,” the 53-year-old groom told E! “We knew that was where we wanted to get married.”
After a night of celebrating with A-listers like Matt Damon, Bono and Bill Murray, the bride and groom made their debut as Mr. and Mrs. George Clooney on Sunday morning. Alamuddin wore a long-sleeved Giambattista Vlli lace dress, embellished with bright colored flowers. Clooney wore a Giorgio Armani suit.
Alamuddin rounded out her weekend of wedding fashion by wearing a white pantsuit and matching hat to her civil ceremony on Monday. Clooney wore a grey suit as the pair entered a Venice municipal building to officially become man and wife.
