George Clooney Moves Forward With Marriage Process, License ObtainedBy: Val Powell - August 7, 2014
Fans of George Clooney still hoping against hope that the actor’s engagement to Amal Alamuddin would someday end are surely devastated to find out that the couple has obtained their marriage license. The 53-year-old Oscar winner and his barrister fiancée, 36, secured the license in London, which is where Alamuddin is based.
As with regular citizens planning to tie the knot, Clooney and Alamuddin visited the Chelsea Register Office two weeks ago to formally announce their wedding by posting their wedding banns, which must be displayed in public for 16 days before they can marry. Their banns number among those posted by ordinary city folk and contain details such as the full name of Clooney (George Timothy Clooney) and the couple’s professions, listing his as “actor and director” and hers as “barrister”. The document also reveals when and where they will be holding their wedding. Members of the entertainment media hoping to cover the event should mark their calendars for September 20 and note that the couple plans to hold the ceremony in Italy.
Although information about Alamuddin’s dress for the ceremony has not been leaked, rumors are circulating that she is considering designer Oscar de la Renta to make it. Meanwhile, Clooney’s choice seems to have been made as a team of designers from Giorgio Armani were recently flown to the actor’s home on LakeComo in Italy to fit him and his groomsmen for suits for the wedding. Clooney recently requested the mayor of LakeComo establish some laws that would safeguard his privacy leading up to the event, setting limits on how close people could swim up to or stand outside his property.
Clooney and Alamuddin first met at a charity auction in September 2013 and became engaged in April this year. He said to Variety of his fiancée, “I’m marrying up.”
