George Clooney wedding

| inspiration, real stories | October 2, 2014

When George Clooney finally announced his engagement, it seemed to cause a major wave of heartbreak!

His Bride of choice was not a fellow actor, but  London-based British-lebanese  human rights lawyer, 36 year old Amal Alamuddin. Born in Beirut Lebanon, her clients include none other than Julian Assange, the founder of wiki leaks. George Clooney, 53,  made his debute on television in the long running medical drama ER. He has 3 Golden Globes and two Academy awards under his belt. His films include Batman and Robin, the Descendants and Argo, a movie that seems to reflect his involvement as a policitical activist. Since 2008 he has served as one of the  United Nations Messengers of Peace.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin  tied the knot in Venice on Saturday during a three day wedding celebration (and had a civil service on Monday).  By celebrity standards it was a small event with only 100 guests in total. (including Bono, Matt Damon, and Cindy Crawford) . Georges father was one of the speech givers at the reception “George and Amal present us with … belief that in this place and at this moment, love is alive and well,” reports People, and George made it clear that they are “looking forward to everything” in their lives to come.

Amal Alamuddin wore a beautiful Oscar de la Renta French lace wedding dress with a veil. She chose ivory tulle appliquéd with fourteen yards of Chantilly lace, its bodice was hand embroidered with crystals and beading and featured an off-the-shoulder neckline. She is a stunning model for this design and I don’t think she could have picked a more flattering dress. George was dressed elegantly in a custom Giorgio Armani tuxedo with a gift from his wife, cuff links with “George” inscribed in Arabic.

George and Amal sold their wedding photos to PEOPLE magazine in the US and HELLO! magazine in the UK. But keeping with their humanitarian ways they are donating a large portion of the money from these publishing deals to the Satellite Sentinel Project, which George co-founded in 2010 to monitor war crimes in Sudan.

It has also been suggested that they sold the wedding photos to the highest bidder to raise as much money as possible so they would have more to donate to their favourite human rights charities.

For a very entertaining take on this marriage check out www.businesswoman.com    who are quoted saying “He’s probably a nice man, but seems to be a bit clingy, as since she met him it’s hard to find a photo or footage of Amal without him hanging around in the background. So refreshing that a woman as incredible as Amal actually gets the acknowledgment.. I love it…
