Amal Clooney told Vogue in 2018 that being with her husband George “felt like the most natural thing in the world… Before that experience, I always hoped there could be love that was overwhelming and didn’t require any weighing or decision-making,” she said.
The couple met in the summer of 2013 after Amal visited George’s residence in Lake Como with a mutual friend. The Hollywood actor’s agent had reportedly told the actor that they had “met this woman who’s coming to your house who you’re gonna marry”, as George revealed to David Letterman years later.
In April 2014, he proposed to Amal with a seven-carat emerald-cut diamond ring. The pair hosted a star-studded wedding celebration in Venice on September 27 the same year, followed by a party in the UK, held by Amal’s parents, in October.
For their wedding at the Aman Grand Canal Hotel, Amal wore a breathtaking lace gown designed by Oscar de la Renta. “George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic, and elegant and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” she told Vogue of her exquisite bridal look.
They made their first appearance as Mr and Mrs Clooney at the Golden Globes in January 2015, for which Amal wore a floor-sweeping black dress and white opera gloves by Dior. On the night, George gushed about his new wife as he accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement. “Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband,” he said. In June 2017, the couple welcomed twins, Ella and Alexander.
They’ve attended countless movie premieres, film festivals and charity galas, but the Clooneys were the best-dressed guests at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding. Amal looked radiant in a mustard-yellow look by Stella McCartney and George was by her side in a grey suit.
