The marriage of the year continues as the George Clooney circus continues to tease its way around Venice and the Hollywood A-lister and his bride Amal Alamuddin have their pictures taken by the thousands.
Cindy Crawford and her husband joined the couple, who may or may not be already married, such is the secrecy surrounding the jamboree. In the local press, it is the only story.
“I think that Venice is the city of lovers and they have chosen the right place,” said one female resident.
On this autumn weekend like any other some more happy couples are getting married in Venice, too, and are getting caught up in the hoopla.
“You can marry whenever you want,” said bride-to-be Catia, posing for tourists.
“It is a pleasure for us that a person as famous as him is celebrating his wedding here, just like us,” said happy husband Michele.
Tourists are never far way in Venice, and a small posse of people has formed to track the Clooneys’ every move, and no doubt jostle for the wedding bouquet when it is tossed, whenever that may be.
