George Clooney set to tie knot in London ahead of Venice nuptials

September 11, 2014 16:55 IST

George Clooney is set to marry Amal Alamuddin in a civil ceremony in London first, and then again in Venice, it has been reported.

The event will be attended by close friends and family only but a bigger, more glamorous second ceremony will be held later on in romantic Venice, the Daily Star reported.

In August, a human rights lawyer visited Kensington and Chelsea register office to get the wedding licence.

The couple later disclosed they would first tie the knot at a formal civil ceremony at Chelsea Old Town Hall.

The Venice bash would likely be on September 27, with an expected 60 guests including Clooney's movie pals such as Matt Damon.

The 53-year-old actor started dating his London-based barrister fiancee last September.

They got engaged in April.
