To the shock and dismay of women around the world, the world’s most eligible bachelor is officially off the market. George Clooney tied the knot with Amal Alamuddin on Sept. 27 in Venice, Italy, at Hotel Aman, a historic hotel on Venice’s iconic Canal Grande.
This 16th-century palazzo, which was built on water, housed Venice’s elite for centuries, so it was a fitting spot for the Oscar-winning actor and the internationally acclaimed barrister to wed. Renovated into a luxury resort in 2013, Hotel Aman blends the old world with the new — frescoes hang in some of the 24 guest rooms, but there’s also a spa and fitness area. Don’t get too excited about following in Clooney’s footsteps: A night here will cost you — prices start at about $1,000 a night for a standard room. Most star-worthy wedding moment? The glamorous couple and their A-list guests arrived via boat or gondola.
After a dream wedding in Venice, where does a Hollywood power couple such as Clooney and Alamuddin honeymoon? Far-flung exotic locales like the beaches in Mauritius or the Maldives? Or perhaps, as was speculated, at royal honeymoon hot spot Seychelles?
