George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin look loved-up in Venice ahead of their wedding

George Clooney and his beautiful bride-to-be, Amal Alamuddin, were the picture of happiness as they cruised down Venice’s Grand Canal on Friday.

The couple were joined on a taxi boat, fittingly named ‘Amore,’ by a group of their friends and family – including Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber – as they prepare to say “I do” this weekend.

Amal cut an elegant figure in a striped monochrome dress and large sunglasses, while George looked dapper in a blue shirt and grey suit jacket.

George and Amal were seen sharing a romantic moment, smiling and gazing into each other’s eyes as the boat travelled under the iconic Rialto Bridge.

While George has been in Italy for some time in the run up to their wedding, this is the first time that he has been seen with his bride-to-be in the city that will host their big day.
