Elisabetta Canalis, who famously dated George Clooney, married her fiancé, Brian Perri, in Italy on Sunday.

The 36-year-old beauty tied the knot with the orthopaedic surgeon, 46, at the Cathedral of Santa Maria in Alghero, Sardinia, just days (or perhaps weeks) before her famous ex marries Amal Alamuddin.

The couple, who became engaged earlier this year, exchanged vows in front of 150 guests in the resort town.

Before Canalis dated Clooney for 18 months, she was engaged to soccer star Christian Vieri and film director Gabriele Muccino.

Canalis has finally found her man and she looked beautiful for her wedding in a white bridal gown with layers of lace embellishments and a 12-foot-long train.

Before the wedding, the bride-to-be dished on her plans for the big day.

"For our wedding I chose a place where no one has ever got married," the Italian star told Chi magazine. A historic estate in the Sardinian countryside, a huge vineyard that we are setting up for the occasion. There is no hotel or restaurant, we will do everything ourselves. Seventy guests will come from the United States and I want them to be amazed. The function will be in the church, I love the tradition and I'm getting married in a white dress."

Following the wedding, Canalis tweeted her thanks to the town where the ceremony was held and the guests that attended.

"Thanks for making this dream possible. Thanks to all the people for the affection you have shown me!," she wrote in Italian.

Clooney, 53, is also expected to walk down the aisle in Italy very soon and professed his love for Alamuddin, 36, in a touching speech at Celebrity Fight Night in Italy.

"I met my bride-to-be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying in a couple of weeks, in Venice, of all places,” said Clooney. "I guess in closing that I would just like to say to my bride-to-be Amal that I love you very much, and I can't wait to be your husband.
