She looks lovely. I love the dress. SO classic and elegant and sweet. Love the lace. And that pic on the People cover is so sweet and romantic. Can't wait to see all the other pics inside.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin: world exclusive wedding pictures in HELLO!
30 SEPTEMBER 2014

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
All eyes were on Venice at the weekend as George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's wedding celebrations drew the attention of the world's press and celebrity watchers from across the globe.

But the couple's private ceremony stayed strictly under wraps – until now.

In a world exclusive, HELLO! magazine is delighted to present the first photos of the eagerly anticipated wedding between the Hollywood heart-throb and his beautiful barrister love.

hello-george-and-amal-cover-


The newlyweds have shared the photos from their special day with HELLO! in conjunction with PEOPLE magazine in the US. The beautiful images will be published in this week's magazine, issue 1348, which will be on sale from Wednesday 1 October.

Don't miss the chance to take the first look inside the ceremony – which took place at the luxury Aman Canal Grande hotel – and the opportunity to see Amal’s exquisite Oscar de la Renta dress in all its glory.

Also featured in detail is the lavish reception which was attended by a host of A-listers including Matt Damon, Bill Murray, U2 singer Bono and best man Rande Gerber and his model wife Cindy Crawford.

George's starry nuptials follow hot on the heels of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wedding, which was also featured in HELLO! in another world exclusive.

"I am both honoured and proud that George Clooney and his new wife Amal have chosen HELLO! to share the photos of their wedding with our readers," said the magazine’s editor-in-chief Eduardo Sanchez.

Read the special 40-page report – including insider details from the ceremony – ONLY in the new edition of HELLO! magazine, on sale from Wednesday 1 October.

Do you know if this is from People or from Vogue? I just noticed that on Vogues October issue there is a some kind of article of Amal that is titled on the cover as "SHE'S THE ONE GEORGE CLOONEY'S RAVISHING BRIDE".

I think this one is from Vogue, so seems they didn't get the exclusive to the wedding but had some sort of deal about the designing of the dress.

Nice dress but disappointing to see him selling pictures of his wedding to any magazine that would take them. Don't care if he donates the money to charity - he's selling out his private life for publicity. And you know, this is what makes me suspicious of the whole wedding/relationship. Because if, as he is trying to make us believe, he's found the love of his life, why would you sell it all out for publicity? 

Saw this post elsewhere and I'm afraid I agree with it:


George has sold his wedding to anyone with a dollar or pound in their pocket. I think they may have out famewhored the Kardashians with this spectacle which I didn't even think was possible. I'm shocked, next they'll have a reality TV show on E, I can just see it now, 'At Home with the Looney Clooney's". George has sunk to a career low with this. Sad, really sad to see someone who used to have a bit of dignity selling out on a massive scale.

More on Hello!
"My verdict on being Mr and Mrs Clooney? It feels pretty damn great," George tells HELLO!

Don't miss the chance to take the first look inside the ceremony – which took place at the luxury Aman Canal Grande hotel. Family and star friends from more than 30 countries, many with tears in their eyes, applauded after the couple exchanged vows and platinum wedding rings during a 30-minute ceremony.

Amal’s exquisite custom-made, French lace Oscar de la Renta dress can also be seen in all its glory. The stunning gown was embroidered with pearls and diamanté accents and featured a gorgeous lace overlay and off-the-shoulder sleeves.

The groom, meanwhile looked dapper in a black tuxedo, which was created by his good friend Giorgio Armani, as part of his Made to Measure collection. The star teamed it with a white shirt, black bow tie and black leather oxfords and the finishing touches were cufflinks gifted from Amal, with "George" inscribed in Arabic.

I think it's a bit disappointing that Hello and People got the scoop. It's nothing like Vogue.
I love the dress, it's simple and elegant and timeless. I would have loved to have seen her hair up though.

I love the dress.  It is absolutely gorgeous.  Lovely detailing. 

I am very happy she chose lace as I really do not like wedding dresses with the super shiny satin. 

I also like that it is not strapless - I think the off the shoulder look is much more refined and elegant if one is not going to have sleeves.  And thank goodness it is not a plunging neckline or that mermaid silhouette that seems to be so popular. 

Can't tell yet if it is backless but based on the off the shoulder neckline and general shape I am going to say it likely is not, or if it is, just a wee bit.

She looks beautiful and divine.  He looks handsome and debonair.

And they both look so very happy.

What a beautiful couple. The dress is devine. Elegant, very feminine, classic. Amal dresses pretty feminine. She loves details, florals. This dress really reflects her, as it should. Thanks to all of you early birds for providing these beautiful pics this morning.

At least I managed to buy three issues of Esquire with him on cover. They're nice...and not expensive at all.

Not exactly early birds if you consider the time difference. It was 2pm here when the news came out so I have plenty of time.

So you dont care about thousands of needy people getting the help they need because of the donation to charity??  Well that speaks volumes about the type of person you are!  I used to be annoyed by you but now I just pity you!

I don't think he sold out he and his wife did something wonderful for charity. They also shared their special day with all of us. It was a weekend many of us  enjoyed it and I'm sure all the guests and the bride and groom did most of all.

Amal Alamuddin’s Wedding Dress: ​Behind the Scenes at Her Final Fitting with Oscar de la Renta
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

For human-rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin’s fairy-tale wedding to George Clooney, only a dream dress would do. Enter Oscar de la Renta.


He is the man every woman wants to hug!” Amal Alamuddin says happily. Surprisingly, the British-Lebanese human-rights barrister is not referring to George Clooney, her groom come September, but rather to the equally debonair Oscar de la Renta, who is designing her wedding dress. “George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” she says. “Meeting him made the design process all the more magical, as he is so warm and such a gentleman.”


Indeed, on a warm Wednesday in late July, 36-year-old Alamuddin gambols blithely into de la Renta’s Bryant Park offices on towering wedge sandals, eager to greet the designer with a double kiss. She wears a floral-printed day dress, also by de la Renta. A sand suede Balenciaga motorcycle bag dangles from her forearm. Her long jet-black hair is blown out with just enough volume around the temples to softly frame her minimally made-up face.  Following her into the showroom are her mother, Baria, who lives in London, and sister, Tala, who has come all the way from Singapore for the fitting.


Soon after the trio arrives, Alamuddin is whisked away into a changing room to be outfitted in the almighty dress for her final appointment with de la Renta and head tailor Raffaele Ilardo, armed with a pincushion and a tape measure draped around his neck. Several minutes later, she emerges with a swishing sound. The dress is an exquisite mille-feuille of ivory tulle appliquéd with fourteen yards of Chantilly lace, its bodice hand embroidered with beading and crystals.


“Be careful, guys,” de la Renta calls to Ilardo and his team. “Don’t let the dress touch the floor!” Like a conductor Ilardo raises and then dips one hand, and in unison he and two helpers bend and pick up the skirt of the dress in one coordinated swoop. As Alamuddin arrives in front of her audience, Tala’s eyes well up immediately. Her mother’s eventually do as well, though she is temporarily distracted by the desire to add additional layers of tulle to the skirt. This is voted against by committee, one reason being that the role of train shepherd is already deemed too much for Tala’s twelve-year-old daughter, Mia, who is Alamuddin’s only flower girl. “That won’t be enough,” says de la Renta confidently. “You will need a grown-up to help as well—your sister.” He nods toward Tala, who is happy to take on the task.
Alamuddin twirls slowly toward the designer, careful not to upset the lower layers of the skirt. She, too, wipes the corner of her espresso-brown eyes as she stands resplendent in her dress. It is agreed by all that de la Renta was right about everything: the cut, the volume, the minimal beading, the subtle ivory hue. He smiles, satisfied. “Look at the color of the paper on the floor; that color is true white, so you can see the dress is cream.” Indeed, the floor has been carefully covered with crisp white butcher paper to protect the pristine hem.


“It’s the most important dress in the life of a woman,” de la Renta says. “Any girl from any walk of life dreams of that special dress, and I try to make that dream a reality for her. Amal and I looked at a lot of evening dresses and wedding dresses together, and we discussed what she liked. That gave me the idea of what she wanted.” The Oxford and New York University law school graduate’s daunting legal résumé—she has represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in his fight against extradition, as well as Ukraine’s former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, and acts as counsel to the United Nations’ inquiry into drone strikes—does not preclude her from having strong opinions on fashion and the minute details of her wedding day. As Ilardo pins a fold of lace at the small of her back, she asks de la Renta whether he thinks it is necessary to have a second, shorter veil for the wedding dinner.
“No, I think after the wedding you take off the veil altogether; you don’t need it anymore,” he replies. “Once you are married, you are married.” Alamuddin smiles. Like the dress, the cathedral veil is adorned with Chantilly lace and bead-and-crystal embroidery; it descends all the way down the back of the dress almost to the floor.
The topic of hairstyle is broached, and it is agreed that hair down but tucked behind the shoulders is the best solution so as not to compete with the neckline of the dress and the embellishment on the veil. The hair and makeup by Orlando Pita and Alice Lane for Alamuddin’s Vogue photo shoot will act as a wedding-day trial run.
The most envied bride-to-be since Catherine Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge, Alamuddin runs her fingers across the dress’s bateau neckline, exposing the seven-carat, ethically mined emerald-cut diamond that hovers like a Chiclet-size spaceship over the fourth finger of her left hand. She asks Ilardo about the neckline, cut off the shoulder to highlight Alamuddin’s Parmagianino neck and poitrine, and wonders if it will remain unfinished. He nods vigorously in agreement. “Oui, madame, it will be a raw edge. Un peu impur.” She discusses the details of the tailoring with Ilardo in French before replying to her mother’s questions in Arabic and proceeding to implore de la Renta, in English, to join their wedding festivities in order to see the dresses in action. Dresses, plural, includes the festive, Gatsby-style party frock that de la Renta is supplying as the second act of the evening.


This she slips into after the wedding dress has been carefully removed. Her entrance is preceded by a soft clicking sound, like the chicest swarm of cicadas, the all-over silver and pearl beading and beaded fringe hem snapping together with each step. The dress is from de la Renta’s fall 2014 collection,  and Alamuddin’s reedlike frame fits effortlessly into the runway sample. It has been shortened from ankle to mid-thigh, the better to show off her endless legs and to make it a true dancing dress.
De la Renta studies the outfit and then issues a soft command to one of his deputies. Suddenly a pair of hand-embroidered beaded silver pumps emerges from a hidden closet. These Baroque marvels are the runway shoes for de la Renta’s upcoming spring 2015 show. The ensemble is complete. De la Renta looks on proudly, the elegant Dominican fairy godfather.


“You look hot!” he declares.
The room erupts into giggles.

I have to admit, his pants length was the first thing I looked at in the photo. Then the cake picture.

The dress is perfect for her.

You know, when he came to Shanghai this May, in his tux and that way too long trousers....all the folks here seemed to say oh he is handsome as usual but also... sort of cute. I assumed that was all from his weird trousers! He was draging his trousers on the floor. People just dont want to point it out aloud or hurt his feelings.

Why don't you go suck on some lemons.  Your negative comments are so tedious.
