Hollywood star George Clooney and his fiancee 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 many celebrities arriving for the festivities.
Among the other arrivals in Venice 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 famed Grand Canal on Monday.
Media have speculated that the couple will have two ceremonies - one on Saturday, followed by a civil ceremony Monday.
