It's getting real for George Clooney and his fiancée, Amal Alamuddin.

The couple posted their marriage license outside Chelsea Old Town Hall in London, per the legal requirement for U.K. citizens. Alamuddin is a renowned lawyer in the city where the couple received their license to tie the knot.

The notice, which must remain on the town hall for 21 days, lists the actor's full name, George Timothy Clooney, and lists his profession as "actor and director". Alamuddin is listed as "barrister", and the wedding location is listed as Italy.

The marriage license is valid for one year.

Clooney, 53, and his love have been spending a lot of time recently in the Italian resort of Lake Como, where the Oscar-winning actor has a villa. In July, the couple were spotted having dinner with his parents in the area.

The future bride and groom's mothers were also pictured shopping together during their Italian vacation.

Clooney proposed to Alamuddin, 36, in April and has been a stand-up fiancé in the months to follow, supporting not only his future wife but her family as well.

In July, George Clooney slammed a Daily Mail story about Alamuddin’s mother in an op-ed piece. Following his slap-down, the article was removed from the British tabloid’s website, with an apology.

The article claimed Alamuddin’s mother objected to the impending marriage because of cultural differences. Clooney was livid at the report, calling it completely false and "dangerous."

“The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous,” said Clooney.

The couple have not yet announced a date for their wedding.
