 It was a strange sight indeed - eternal Hollywood bachelor George Clooney showing off his wedding ring, a day after he finally got hitched.

He and his bride, lawyer Amal Alamuddin, made their first post-nuptial public appearance on Sunday on a vintage water taxi, leading a flotilla of boats down the Grand Canal in Venice after dancing till nearly dawn at a star-studded overnight wedding ceremony and party at the seven-star Aman Canal Grande hotel.

They were headed for the Cipriani hotel, where they were to have a late lunch.

Alamuddin, 36, wore a long-sleeved, embroidered Giambattista Valli dress while her 53-year-old husband was suave in a finely cut grey suit.

Begged by the crowd to show off his ring, a wide band in white gold - the actor jokingly looked at his right hand in surprise.

Her ring was more delicate and looked like it featured a band of small diamonds.

Reports said they were to hold a civil ceremony yesterday at the Venice town hall to make official their wedding under Italian law.

The rumour spread after the local government said it would close a number of streets around Venice's 14th-century Ca' Farsetti town hall yesterday.

"George and Amal: the first 'I do' is fiction, tomorrow the (real) wedding at Ca' Farsetti," said local paper Il Gazzettino following Saturday's dinner at which the pair were reported to have said informal wedding vows.

"The wedding was more than perfect," Amal's father Ramzi Alamuddin told Agence France-Presse, describing the festivities as "grand" and "simple". He said the couple were a great match and he was "very happy" about how they were welcomed in Venice.

"It is very good news among the bad news we are living now," he said, referring to the unrest in the Middle East and on the borders of Lebanon, where the bride was born.

A source close to the hotel said there were wolf-whistles and cheers as Clooney scooped his bride into his arms for a nuptial kiss, and his hands were shaking so much that he did a botched job cutting the wedding cake.

Attendees including Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber reportedly danced into the early hours to tracks by Blondie, Jackson 5 and Daft Punk.

Clooney reportedly dedicated the song When I Fall In Love to Alamuddin, before a string orchestra and jazz trio performed ballads including Smoke Gets In Your Eyes. Missing, however, were friends Brad Pitt and wife Angelina Jolie, who wed last month and were said to be on honeymoon in Malta where they were working on a film, By The Sea.

The Clooneys are expected to honeymoon in Marrakech in Morocco, said a source.
