George Clooney did not get married yesterday in London.
Chelsea Old Town Hall was host to a crowd of spectators on Friday hoping to catch a glimpse of 53-year-old Clooney and his soon-to-be wife, Amal Alamuddin.
However, despite tabloid reports, George Clooney and his fiance didn’t show.
A note that read, “We are NOT conducting the wedding of Mr. Clooney at this office today,” was attached to the outside of the Town Hall.
The note continued, “We have assisted in the legal preliminaries for a proposed wedding for George Clooney and his fiance. A certificate of no impediment was applied for and has been issued as no objection was raised.”
It went on to say that, “a film crew and press photographers would only cause plausible disruption to other couples getting married on this day.”
It did cause some disruption, however, as nine other couples were married in the building. They had to make their way out the back door to avoid the unwanted attention.
This probably won’t be the last time the crowd gathers at the news of George Clooney’s marriage. They seem pretty devoted.
“Well, if George Clooney’s come to London to tie the knot, no better place to do it than in Chelsea, so I’m very happy. We’re here to congratulate him,” Francesca Wellman, one of the hopeful crowd, said.
“George will never let us down. He chose Chelsea.”
His absence didn’t deter the hopeful crowd. They say that their time wasn’t wasted, at least.
Suzanne, a local resident, said, “We haven’t really wasted our time … it’s a lovely vibe around here.”
While the exact date of his marriage isn’t known, Clooney has said the couple will to host a large official wedding ceremony in Venice in late September, so London may be out of luck. We shall see!
What do you think? Would you wait outside to catch a glimpse of George Clooney?
