George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding created quite a buzz. The newlywed got married last Sept. 27, 2o14. US Magazine reported that the wedding event started at 8:00 p.m. at the Venice’s Aman Grande Hotel.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests dined on a five-course meal prepared by Italian chef Riccardo De Pra and a team from Pisa and canapés, with prosciutto and figs, prepared by Federico Salza. The dinner menu included lobster, risotto, sea bass and beef. Some of the notable personalities present in the big event were Anna Wintour, Cindy Crawford, Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. During the reception, Alamuddin’s father gave a speech to the newlyweds,”Now it’s time for grandchildren!” Based on the report from Harpers Bazaar, the cost of their wedding was around $13 million.
After the wedding, everyone is asking about their honeymoon. As per Vanity Fair, the couple spent their honeymoon at the English country manor they have bought, about 50 miles west of London. The publication also added that the mansion of the couple was used by the New York Daily News for the “Downton Abbey” castle while writing about the house.
A source told Us Weekly reported Clooney and Alamuddin are all alone in the mansion. They are having their meals delivered daily by a “private catering company.”
Previously, Clooney was reported to write in USA Today for the visceral attack of the Daily Mail, as the British newspaper wrote a story saying Alamuddin’s mother disapproved of their marriage due to religious grounds.
Clooney’s letter to Daily Mail reads,
The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous. We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal
After writing the letter, the Daily Mail apologized to Clooney. Their statement:
“We accept Mr. Clooney’s assurance that the story is inaccurate and we apologize to him, Miss Amal Alamuddin and her mother, Baria, for any distress caused.”
