George Clooney sets sail in the love boat for Venice wedding
Hollywood star George Clooney and his British fiancée Amal Alamuddin have arrived in Venice, Italy, ahead of their weekend wedding extravaganza.
A clutch of photographers were on hand to record the couple's arrival at the Tronchetto terminal, where they were picked up by Clooney's regular water-taxi driver and taken to the luxury Cipriani hotel.
The couple were accompanied by supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband. Among the other arrivals were actors Matt Damon and Miguel Ferrer.
Clooney (53) and human rights lawyer Alamuddin (36) have not publicly divulged details of the celebrations, although Venice city officials have closed the area along the Grand Canal on Monday. Media have speculated that the couple will have two ceremonies – one on Saturday, followed by a civil ceremony Monday.
