George: "Amal, I can't wait to be your husband."

George shares details on his upcoming wedding.

George Clooney accepted an award at the Celebrity Fight Night event in Italy’s Tuscany on Sunday, and he couldn’t stop gushing about his wife-to-be, his gorgeous fiance, Amal Alamuddin.

In his acceptance speech, George said “I would just like to say to my bride-to-be, Amal, that I love you very much. And I can’t wait to be your husband.”

The loved-up pair were said to be marrying at George’s $45 million home by Lake Como in Italy. But in his speech, George also revealed the actual location of their high-profile wedding, Italy’s pinnacle of romance, Venice.

Not only is Venice one of the most romantic locations in the world, but George went on to share a very personal reason for the choice in location.

“I met my lovely bride-to-be here in Italy, whom I will be marrying, in a couple of weeks, in Venice, of all places” George said.

The Daily Star reports that George and Amal will have two weddings. Their first wedding is said to be at a registry office in London with intimate family , while the second in Venice will be a more lavish and star-studded event.

Onlookers at the Celebrity Fight Night event explained that the pair spent the night laughing and whispering to each other, while George wrapped his arm wrapped around Amal’s shoulder and tucking her hair behind her ear as they sat at their table.

Amal has been said to be seen at the offices of Alexander McQueen, the same fashion brand that created Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.

But there hasn’t been much rest for George, who is still fulfilling acting commitments prior to his nuptials. Yesterday ITV, the British network who broadcasts Downton Abbey, confirmed reports that George has filmed a scene a very brief appearance on the show and it’s all for charity.
