Clooney reveals wedding location

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin will wed in Venice, Italy, according to the actor.

The Hollywood heartthrob met British attorney Amal Alamuddin last September and proposed just last April.

And while attending Celebrity Fight Night in Florence, Italy Sunday night, the star confessed the couple are looking forward to exchanging vows in the country.

"I met my lovely bride to be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying in a couple of weeks, in Venice, of all places,” he told People.

George was presented with the Humanitarian Award at the black-tie event, held in support of the Andrea Bocelli Foundations and The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center.

The pair had previously kept the location of their nuptials under wraps, after reportedly obtaining their marriage license in London.

Rumours have circulated for months the couple have been planning their vows in Venice.

"He said he is an honourary 12-year resident of Italy and then said they were getting married in Venice," a source previously told the outlet of George, who has a home in Lake Como. "He also said to Amal [from the podium], 'I love you very much.'"

Us Weekly previously reported Amal's mother jetted out to the country in June in order to establish laws preventing fans and paparazzi getting close to his residence on the big day.
