Celebrities, paparazzi and the world's media are congregating in Venice for the widely anticipated wedding weekend of a man long considered Hollywood's most eligible bachelor: George Clooney.
The actor and his fiancee, British human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin, were photographed Friday cruising the sun-dappled canals of Venice ahead of their big day.
Clooney, 53, and Alamuddin, 36, looked happy and impeccably glamorous as they were carried around the city in a motor boat appropriately named "Amore," or "Love," passing bemused tourists in gondolas as they went.
The bride-to-be was dressed in a stylish black and white dress, while Clooney wore a sharply tailored gray suit and white shirt with dark sunglasses.
The first celebrity guests to arrive were also caught on camera in the city famed for romance, notably actor Matt Damon, American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and supermodel Cindy Crawford.
It's not been confirmed exactly when and where the wedding ceremony will take place. Culledz
