My niece is great, someone who will be a fabulous mother and has had her share of issues along the baby journey, so I don’t begrudge her this new family.

But it struck me that if our own baby had lived (due two months ago), we would have been receiving baby gifts right around now too, celebrating our own miracle, dealing with the first few weeks at home after the birth, making this massive transition.

UPDATED: And finally, here are the official photos secured by Vanity Fair Italia – see below.

UPDATED: Here we go: People and Hello! magazines have the exclusive (not Vogue, although Vogue did get one exclusive shot of Amal’s dress fitting with Oscar de la Renta, shot by Annie Leibovitz), with full coverage on stands from October 1, 2014.

Amal Alamuddin wears a French lace gown by Oscar de la Renta and George Clooney wears Giorgio Armani.

The website thebusinesswomanmedia.com said is best with, “Internationally acclaimed barrister Amal Alamuddin marries an actor”. Nicely done, Amanda Rose and your businesswomanmedia team, nicely done.

So, our congratulations to actor/director George Clooney on marrying the exceptional human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin – you’ve done well for yourself, George, and we only hope that Amal doesn’t get stuck with too many “the wife of George Clooney” comments in the future and continues to be recognised for her own achievements.

We wish you both the very best for a fabulous partnership.

Keep scrolling down for photos from the wedding weekend and the hotel where the wedding itself took place…
