Well, that was quick. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's civil wedding only took ten minutes (According to The New York Post, the Clooneys arrived at the municipal building at 1:25pm and the couple appeared for a celebratory kiss at 1:35pm), but the wedding weekend reportedly cost up to $13 million.
E! is reporting that the couple's weekend extravaganza included bachelor and bachelorette parties on Friday night, and a lavish wedding ceremony at the Aman Canal Grande hotel. The venue was decorated with white flowers and hundreds of lit candles. Guests were asked to give in their phones, and were provided with burner phones, so that images from the wedding wouldn't leak.
