Clooney newlyweds cruise Venice

Wedding bands were glinting on the hands of George Clooney and his new bride Amal Alamuddin as they emerged from the luxury hotel in Venice where they were married a day earlier.

The groom, in a smart light grey suit, sported a simple ring on his left hand.

His wife, in a flouncy white dress with pastel-coloured appliques, had a thin band studded with what appeared to be diamonds.

They hopped into a water taxi this afternoon and, embracing, made their way down the Grand Canal.

Gondoliers steered out of the way while tourists cheered.

The 53-year-old actor, who had vowed he would never wed again, and the 36-year-old London-based human right lawyer were married with Hollywood stars and family among guests.
