Hollywood's most eligible bachelor is no more a bachelor! Actor George Clooney and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin are now husband and wife.

"George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin were married today (Saturday) in a private ceremony in Venice, Italy," the actor's representative said in a statement, reports people.com.

The two were married by Walter Veltroni, former mayor of Rome. Clooney, 53, was joined by friends to celebrate his marriage to the 36-year-old Alamuddin, 36 at Aman, a luxury hotel overlooking Venice's Grand Canal.

The much-anticipated wedding, attended by families and celebrities like Matt Damon and John Krasinski, follows a series of celebratory events leading up to Saturday's nuptials.

Clooney and Alamuddin were first spotted stepping out together in London last October and since then they've embarked on a series of globe-trotting travels, including a trip to Tanzania in March and a getaway to the Seychelles.

Clooney was earlier married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993.
