Ok, we were wrong. Clooney is NOT getting married at the Como lake. He has been hiding somewhere else. Where? Right, here at the Belmond Hotel Cipriani.
So, lets check out this wedding location in Venice, Venezia, regioni Veneto. That’s a lot of ven’s and since we are fan of George Clooney, we love sniffing around his wheareabouts. The best place to start sniffing is… the Facebook page of the Belmond Hotel Cipriani. What we found is that:
- they have a beautiful bar with terrace where you can mingle during Cocktail Hours.
- it is a place where lot of celebrities like to stay
- they have a yellow gondola that looks like a banana
- in 2013, Mr. Clooney was handed over a box of Tequila, we instantly think this is part of a wedding ceremony booking, as a thank you
- they have a restaurant where you can sit outside and watch the gondola’s
- they have a funny looking Sommelier
- this might be their bridal suite
- they have another boat
Added to that, some tourist information:

Getting married at the Cipriani
So, sure, Mr. Clooney is a nice man, but what we really would like to know is if I can get married at the Cipriani. This is the wedding venue information from the website of the hotel:
Venice makes the heart beat faster. Opulent architecture surrounded by water, gondoliers serenading couples as they drift down narrow canals. It’s a truly unique backdrop for your wedding. With gardens once host to Casanova, and panoramic lagoon views, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is the ideal venue. From a church ceremony to a blessing on a gondola, our experts will meet any request. Allow us to take care of every detail. And even more information in the very detailed and informative wedding factsheet. It give s us an idea of the range of possibilities, from ceremony to reception to bridal suite but no prices. For that we have to make an inquiry. Ofcourse, all depends on the number of guests that you take with you, they amount of rooms that you want to occupy and for how long. My guess is, it will take a lot of money, and a lot of time to book in advence :)
