Still partying one month later! George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin were feted by several of their loved ones at a second wedding celebration thrown by the bride’s parents, mom Baria and dad Ramzi, at the Danesfield House Hotel in the UK on Saturday, Oct. 25.
Guests of the newlyweds were treated to a cocktail reception, and a three course meal with the help of the hotel’s executive chef Billy Reid, an insider tells Us Weekly. Beautiful white dried Gypsophila flowers were scattered throughout and a grand piano was placed in the middle of the room for dancing and entertainment.
A separate smoking room with high cocktail tables was also available, the source adds. Each table was decorated with black linens and had a tree cutting as centerpieces.
Clooney’s in-laws made sure to have the bar fully stocked with bottles of Smirnoff vodka, Gordon’s gin, Pommery brut, and other juices and soft drinks. A highlight of the evening included “Mr. and Mrs. Clooney” cocktails that represented both the bride and groom, giving the already intimate affair a special touch.
The source tells Us that the “Him” ingredients included Tequilla Don Juilio Reposado, citron vodka, lime juice, and ginger ale. The “Her” option was a mix of canola vodka, passion fruit liqueur, and lime juice.
The former bachelor, 53, flew into London on Thursday before the festivities to join his barrister, 36, at their Berkshire home. Other guests of the couple, including several of Alamuddin’s relatives and Clooney’s family from Buffalo, arrived Friday. That night, the Tomorrowland actor and Alamuddin hosted a dinner at their countryside residence until about 11:30 p.m.
Amal’s mother Baria recently spoke to The Telegraph before toasting once more to the couple. “We are all very happy. We’re so looking forward to celebrating Amal and George’s marriage here,” she said. “This is a lovely place for it. It will be very special.”
“People keep asking us about the wedding and about Amal and her husband,” she continued. “I suppose we’ll have to get used to it. I guess we’re famous now.”
Clooney and Alamuddin wed in Venice, Italy on Sept. 27. They were joined by several of their famous friends, including John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, Anna Wintour, Bill Murray, and Matt Damon.
