How Amal Alamuddin Quit Smoking For George Clooney + Photos From Their Celebrity Wedding

Posted in: , ,

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin got married in a celebrity wedding as well as a civil ceremony in Venice, Italy last week. The couple, 53 and 36 respectively have shared their wedding pictures with a few magazines including the Italian version of Vanity Fair above. Below are wedding photos from People magazine and Hello!

A close friend Jae Kim revealed the lengths Amal had gone for the love of George Clooney including quitting smoking. She said during their wedding speech;

According to People magazine;

One night last summer, Amal Alamuddin and Jae Kim, her dear friend since law school, had a heart-to-heart about love.

"[We] stayed up talking late into the night about relationships and whether she would ever meet her partner in life.

"She had just been picked the 'Hottest Barrister in London,' and I was concerned that this would not work in her favor, as most men found her intimidating already."

What's more, Alamuddin's bar was almost impossibly high. "The list of things she was looking for in this man, she readily admitted, could not realistically be found in one person," shared Kim. "She was looking for Mr. Perfect, and he was nowhere to be found."

But then Amal met George Clooney and was immediately smitten. But her friend was worried.

"I have to admit, that caused some motherly panic," Kim said in her speech. "Is she going to get hurt? He isn't exactly Mr. Commitment, I thought."

Those fears were quickly dispelled. "You could see in the way he held himself, treated her and others, and enjoyed life that his heart was big and he loved her with all of it," she said.

The effect Clooney, 53, had on Alamuddin was evident: She quit smoking ("cold turkey!"), and uncharacteristically, Kim joked, "ever since she met George, she has been on time."

But most of all, she said, "I had never seen her smile like that. She has had that smile now for almost a year straight."

The couple's love story, said Kim, "is nothing short of a fairy tale."
