Clooney, wife make newlywed appearance in Venice
VENICE, Italy - Wedding bands were glinting under the Venetian sun on the hands of George Clooney and his new bride, Amal Alamuddin, as the actor and the human rights lawyer emerged from the luxury hotel where they were married a day earlier in the lagoon city.
The groom, in a smart light gray suit, sported a simple ring on his left hand. His wife, in a flouncy white dress with pastel-colored appliques, had a thin band studded with what appeared to be diamonds.
They hopped into a water taxi Sunday afternoon and, embracing, made their way down the Grand Canal. Gondoliers steered out of the way. Tourists cheered.
The 53-year-old actor, who had vowed he'd never wed again, and the 36-year-old London-based lawyer, were married with Hollywood stars and family among guests.
