The Aman hotel on Venice’s Grand Canal is feverishly preparing for George Clooney’s wedding to Amal Alamuddin.

Clooney and his Lebanon-born British fiancee were spotted at Venice's Piazzale Roma on Friday.

Sources say the couple will celebrate with 136 guests, including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Matt Damon​, at the exclusive seven-star hotel in the 450-year-old Palazzo Papadopoli.

Hollywood stars and the world’s paparazzi have already begun arriving for the nuptials.

The pair are expected to be officially married in a civil ceremony on Monday, but the city of masks is preparing for a weekend of serious partying before then.

"Clooney’s on everyone’s lips here in Venice, the girls in particular are all in a tizzy, they’ll be lining the banks of the canal to see him," said watertaxi driver Bruno Bartolini, who said it would be "a fantastic party".

"The city’s ground to a halt because they’re using the grand canal, but what does that matter: there’s nothing better than getting married in Venice," said Mr Bartolini.

The guests are expected to dine in style on Friday evening with the couple. 

The reception will take place on Saturday at the luxurious waterfront Aman, where guests will be escorted by police boats keen to keep over-excited Clooney admirers and hundreds of photographers at a distance.
