It's Mr and Mrs Clooney (and they have the bands to prove it)
Hollywood's hottest new husband and wife have emerged beaming in Venice with their wedding rings glinting in the sunlight.
George Clooney and British human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin were cheered by crowds as they walked hand in hand out of the luxury hotel where they married last night in front of a host of celebrity guests.
The groom, in a smart light grey suit, sported a simple ring on his left hand.
While his wife, who stunned in a daringly short white dress with pastel-coloured appliques, had a thin band studded with what appeared to be diamonds.
The actor's long term representative Stan Rosenfield confirmed the marriage in a one-line statement.
Yesterday evening guests were seen taking gondolas and canal boats to the celebration, which overlooked the romantic city's spectacular Grand Canal.
The couple were joined by their famous friends including Matt Damon, Ellen Barkin, Anna Wintour, Richard Kind and Bono and his wife.
Earlier the 53-year-old Oscar-winner enjoyed a drink with supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband Randy Gerber on a hotel terrace.
Thirty-six year-old Alamuddin was born in Beirut, educated at Oxford, and is based in London.
She has represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and been described as a ''passionate defender of human rights''.
Clooney, 53, who shot to fame playing Dr Doug Ross in medical drama ER, was previously married to actress Talia Balsam and had said he would never marry again, though he has dated a string of women including Lisa Snowdon, Stacy Keibler and Elisabetta Canalis.
Clooney is famously close with his Ocean's Eleven co-star, who was too busy to attend the showbiz wedding of the year as he basked in his own newlywed bliss with his Oscar-winning wife.
The loved-up couple tied the knot in August during a private ceremony in France, after more than nine years together. Following their nuptials they jetted out to Malta with their six children, incorporating a honeymoon with work commitments.
It was originally reported that they would be last minute arrivals in Venice yesterday, expected to arrive by private jet.
Brad and Angelina are filming new movie By the Sea, with Angelina also taking on writing and directorial duties for the flick.
It's thought they only enjoyed two days of official honeymoon time onboard a yacht, before moving to neighbouring island Gozo to begin production.
However, the ceremony wasn't short of famous faces.
U2 frontman Bono and wife Ali Hewson led the superstars descending on Venice this afternoon for George Clooney's wedding.
The legendary rocker is a longtime friend of the two-time Oscar winner, who exchanged vows with human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in a lavish ceremony.
A-listers including Matt Damon, Cindy Crawford, Ellen Barkin and Emily Blunt jetted into Italy on Friday to kick off the celebrations early, while a host of stars began their trip today.
The couple were to hold a grand wedding reception in the Aman Hotel, which occupies a centuries-old palazzo on the banks of the Grand Canal, where they were to exchange vows informally.
The star of The Monuments Men and Good Night and Good Luck was in a generous mood, sending a bottle of his own brand of tequila to journalists outside his five-star hotel, the Cipriani. "Don't drink it all at once!" he joked.
For 36-year-old Ms Alamuddin, who was born in Lebanon but came to Britain with her family as a toddler, it was a far cry from Doughty Street Chambers, the barristers' office where she works in London.
The Aman Hotel occupies the 15th-Century Palazzo Papadopoli, which has hosted the cream of Venetian society for centuries.
But it was evidently not quite grand enough for the Oxford-educated barrister, who reportedly ordered a consignment of oil paintings, tapestries and antique furniture to create just the atmosphere she wanted for the event.
Clooney, who has gone out with a long line of starlets and actresses, had vowed never to remarry after his first marriage ended in divorce in 1993.
But even Hollywood celebrities change their mind, and the actor and director had prepared a special musical tribute for his soon-to-be-wife, hiring a string orchestra and jazz band to entertain more than 100 guests with a medley of romantic classics, from Nat King Cole's When I Fall in Love to Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.
