The couple have been causing a stir in the beautiful Italian city, having held their seperate stag and hen do celebrations on Friday night. Photos published all over the papers showed Clooney enjoying a meal with close friends, including Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber, who is reported to also have been on best man duty. He left a note behind at Da Ivo restaurant (a frequent haunt) which the owner has now proudly displayed in the window. Meanwhile Alamuddin celebrated in a different part of the city with her sister, mother, and a group of close friends. The following morning Clooney was pictured walking around the city with Gerber, joined this time by his wife. 

Walter Veltroni, former mayor of Venice and a close friend of Clooney, performed the ceremony, which is believed to have been attended by a host of Clooney's celebrity pals including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (who themselves tied the knot in France last month), Matt Damon, Sandra Bullock, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. It has also been reported that Vogue has secured the rights to photos of the couple's nuptials, having donated a fee to charity in return.
