George Clooney, Amal Alamuddin Attend Wedding Together -- See Amal As an Officiant!
An ordained bride-to-be! George Clooney's fiancée Amal Alamuddin took on the role of officiant at her cousin Tarek Miknas' wedding on July 10 in Chianti, a winemaking region outside of Florence, Italy.
Stunning in a floor-length purple gown, the human rights lawyer, 36, officiated the nuptials at Villa Mangiacane, a stunning 15th century villa hotel and spa built by the Machiavelli family located in the small town of San Casciano.
The wedding location features sweeping views across the property's 600 aces of lush vineyards and olive groves. A guest tells Us Weekly, Clooney, who looked equally as dapper alongside his bride-to-be in a suit, "was affable and polite with those he met and made a big impression on those involved in the wedding." Following the ceremony, Alamuddin and Clooney took photos with the bride and groom.
Gearing up for their own wedding, the couple have been spending time in Italy at the 53-year-old Monuments Men actor's Lake Como home. A source tells Us, the couple who plan to wed sometime this fall, have been granted two new protection laws which prevent fans and paparazzi from getting too close to the villa. The laws, declared in June, prevent anyone from stopping on both the road outside his house, and the water directly in front of his villa, 24-hours a day. The restrictions are set to remain in place until September 30.
When it comes to marrying the London-based attorney, another source tells Us Clooney would "marry her today ... but he wants to give her a dream wedding."
