Fashion highlights from the wedding of the year as George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin marry in Venice

Venice's Grand Canal came alive this weekend with the sound of several hundred water taxis, as A-List stars and paparazzi alike flocked to mark the wedding of one former ER star to his human rights lawyer love. Yes that's right, George Clooney has tied the knot with Amal Alamuddin, heralded by countless crystal flutes of champagne, plate-loads of prosciutto ham with figs and a heady guest list of major celebrity names.

Best of all was the fashion - the array of fabulous, daring, cosmopolitan-flavoured dresses on display. First up was the bride herself. While we have yet to see THE dress, 36-year-old Amal did not disappoint during her wedding weekend, showcasing a series of stunning and dramatic Italian Riviera-inspired designs from the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney. Then there was Emily Blunt, looking gorgeous in a power blue embellished gown by Emilio Pucci, and Matt Damon's wife Luciana Barroso rocking an eye-catching lilac affair from the Naeem Khan Resort 2015 collection.

Come see who wore what as the star-studded party celebrated a four-day wedding fiesta in and around the luxury hideouts of Venice, from the Hotel Cipriani where guests were based to the seven-star Aman Canal Grande Hotel, where George and Amal exchanged vows:
