It's finally official: George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are married! Capping off a wildly romantic weekend in which they celebrated their bachelor and bachelorette parties in Venice, Italy, and hosted a grand ceremony and reception at the Aman Canal Grande hotel, the duo followed Italian laws today and had a civil ceremony in the Sala Degli Affreschi at Palazzo Ca' Loredan, a council building.
According to Us Weekly, the A-list actor and his British barrister wife donned a gray suit and a cream-colored hat and pantsuit, respectively, for the official event. That outfit was a slight departure for Alamuddin, who reportedly wore an Oscar de la Renta wedding dress, according to WWD. Their mode of transportation wasn't too shabby, either: They took the same Amore boat they'd been using all weekend.
Clooney's friend, former Rome Mayor Walter Veltroni performed the civil ceremony in addition to the Saturday ceremony. Another witness included Clooney's favorite taxi driver Alessandro Greco.
With their marriage finally set in stone, the couple of nearly a year seemed happier than ever, according to Us. Clooney told the magazine he felt "very good" before smiling and nuzzling into his new wife's neck as they exited the Palazzo.
It's no wonder they're so giddy — the weekend was filled with revelry among guests including Matt Damon and his wife Luciana, Bill Murray, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, and Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber.
Another high-profile guest was U2 frontman Bono, who joked around with People as he left Venice this morning. "Wedding? What wedding? I was at a bar mitzvah," he said, when asked how he enjoyed the weekend nuptials.
"The party was great. It's still going on ... in some people's minds," he added, before mentioning the ceremony. "It was very emotional and lovely," he noted.
