After a star-studded and ultra-luxurious wedding weekend in Venice, Italy, photos of George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin‘s “I Dos” have been revealed to the public!
The newlyweds covered this week’s new issues of People and Hello! magazine, with both featuring stunning pics and exclusive details of the couple’s big day.
The new covers show barrister bride Amal, 36, looking classically elegant in a white, off-the-shoulder wedding gown while marrying George, 53, in front of 100 close friends and family at the Aman Canal Grande hotel this past weekend in Venice, Italy.
Oscar de la Renta designed her custom French lace gown with hand-embroidered pearls, diamanté accents and a circular train. The groom donned a dapper black tuxedo designed by friend Giorgio Armani with ultra-fine wool/cashmere paired with a white shirt, black bow tie and oxfords in smooth, brushed black leather. He also wore cufflinks gifted to him from his new wife that were inscribed with “George” in Arabic, People reports.
“George and Amal radiated love all night,” the bride’s mother, Baria, told the magazine. “The wedding was so unbelievably special, it was legendary. These three days — the friends, the families, the atmosphere, everything — will stay with me all the rest of my life.”
During the half-hour ceremony, which took place on Saturday, Sept. 27, the couple exchanged traditional vows and platinum rings. It was concluded with a lengthy kiss between the bride and groom, People reports.
Being married, George told the magazine, “feels pretty damn great.”
George and Amal’s covers come just weeks after another A-List Hollywood couple exchanged vows in a highly anticipated wedding ceremony and shared exclusive photos with both People and Hello! magazine.
We’re referring to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, of course!
While both sets of covers feature beautiful photos of the bride with her groom, perhaps the most noticeable difference was the six Jolie-Pitt children’s attendance and involvement in their parent’s wedding on Aug. 23, 2014.
Attended by just 20 friends and family members, Brad and Angelina’s ceremony was much more intimate than George and Amal’s lavish affair. However, both couple’s opted to wed abroad — Brad and Angelina exchanged vows in the chapel of Château Miraval, their private estate in the French village of Correns.
“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” Brad, 50, and Angelina, 39, told People of their nuptials. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”
Another apparent difference between the two weddings were the brides’ gowns. While both were custom made, Angelina interestingly wore a one-of-a-kind dress and veil designed by Luigi Massi (the master tailor at Atelier Versace) adorned with dozens of drawings done by her children.
Brad wore his own suit with a tie borrowed from one of his sons because the actor reportedly forgot to pack his own.
Wishing both couples happiness in their respective marriages!
