E! News can confirm the Hollywood hunk and human rights lawyer finalized their union with a civil ceremony in Venice, Italy, Monday afternoon. The couple arrived at the municipal building at 1:25 p.m. local time. Clooney, wearing a two-piece gray suit, and Alamuddin, wearing a cream pantsuit and a matching hat, waved to well wishers who were gathered outside. A local politician escorted them inside the building to sign the marriage papers. The Clooneys emerged 10 minutes later and looked ecstatic as they held hands and kissed. A local city council press person confirms "the ink was on the paper, finalized, at about 1:30. The rest was just happiness and joy."
The couple got in the boat and went up the canal slowly, with paparazzi in tow and police boats leading the way. "Fans were going wild! People were running alongside the banks," an eyewitness says.
The ceremony comes two days after the couple said "I Do" in a separate private ceremony that was attended by family and close friends including Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt and more famous faces.
George and Amal's final ceremony concludes a jam-packed weekend for the couple and their guests who traveled across the world as early as Thursday to attend the festivities.
