    Sure it's horrible. No parent wants to see their kid turn into a whore, even if her price is in the millions.

    She struck me as physically an adult but emotionally immature. That's why she was the perfect Bride of Cruisenstein - relationship dumb, probably buckled easily in the face of a more dominant personality and not ever going to outshine Tommygirl career-wise.

    Her father did the only thing he could do in that situation - sat tight and waited until she was ready to accept the help to get out.

    Another wedding.

    Another Clooney wedding party... and one very angry hotel guest: Disgruntled customer who had afternoon tea cancelled takes to TripAdvisor to complain

    For those lucky enough to be invited to George and Amal Clooney’s second wedding party, it appears to have delivered on its promise of Hollywood glamour.
    For non-A-listers with reservations at the country house hotel where it was held at the weekend, however, it seems there was a distinct lack of VIP treatment.
    One disgruntled customer has complained that their family outing had to be cancelled because of the glitzy gathering at Danesfield House in Buckinghamshire.

    Unhappy: In a review on TripAdvisor, under the title ‘Cancelled due to George Clooney’s wedding’, an author wrote that his afternoon tea was 'cancelled one week beforehand due to exclusive event taking over the hotel'

    In a review on website TripAdvisor, under the title ‘Cancelled due to George Clooney’s wedding’, the author wrote: ‘Booked afternoon tea two months in advance for very special occasion for family – never got to go as was cancelled one week beforehand due to exclusive event taking over the hotel.

    ‘It was suggested we had our tea in the spa instead but the hotel didn’t offer any type of compensation until I actually cancelled. Won’t book with them again.’

    The post has since been removed, and the profile of the user - 'StwartHasAPoint', believed to be a woman in her mid-30s living in London - is no longer active.
    With a rumoured cost of £65,000, the Clooney party followed their official nuptials in Venice last month. Security was strict but a few details have emerged of the three-day extravaganza.

    Clooney, 53, and his 36-year-old human rights lawyer wife kicked off celebrations on Friday with a dinner with her parents Baria and Ramzi Alamuddin.

    TripAdvisor review

    The rumoured 90-strong guest list is thought to have included Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who were unable to attend the wedding in Venice, as well as Meryl Streep, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Kevin Spacey and Ewan McGregor.
    It is thought guests were met at the door with his ’n’ hers cocktails. For ladies there was a pink drink made of vanilla vodka, passion fruit liqueur and lime juice, while the gents sipped one containing tequila, vodka, lime juice and ginger ale.

    Guests then apparently dined at tables dressed with black tablecloths.
    The Clooneys are reported to have booked half the hotel for their guests, taking advantage of a £110-a-head wedding deal, while they stayed in the Tower Suite.
    Two-thirds of the hotel's 629 reviews on TripAdvisor are either 'excellent' or 'very good', while only 6 per cent are 'terrible'. Overall, the best-rated feature is 'location', while the worst is 'value'.

    A older article but so am I

    Are Amal and George just as shameless as Kim and Kanye? Probably

    By Natalia Naish | October 1, 2014 12:47pm
    Your Barrister Boyfriend co-creator Natalia Naish is faintly repulsed at the Amal Alammudin-George Clooney wedding

    It is easy to get caught up in the glamour of George Clooney and Amal Alammudin’s fairy tale wedding. Surely this is a guilt-free pleasure if ever one existed. Beautiful and brilliant human rights lawyer succeeds in “taming” (let us forget about the sexist implications of this for now) the world’s most eligible bachelor. Both live happily after, and in the process give us all a vicarious thrill with their star-studded wedding celebrations.
    But as the details of their four-day wedding emerge — the caseloads of tequila, the never-ending parade of Amal’s designer dresses, the boatloads of grinning celebrities, and the $13 million (£8 million) price tag — it all begins to seem slightly unseemly and in-your-face, especially for a couple who profess to be extremely private.
    In the last few years there has been a lot of talk about rising inequality and the triumphant march of the 1% and, more importantly, the .01%. These stratospherically rich high-net-worth individuals are clogging up London and turning the city into the happy stomping ground of oligarchs, bankers, aristocrats, and, last but not least, celebrities. George, and now Amal, are bona fide members of the global super-rich.
    George has made his money fair and square you might say, and if he wants to spend $13 million on the woman he adores, why not? Increasingly, ostentatious displays of wealth are the norm. Just look at the Ferraris and Maseratis parked outside of Harrods or have a perusal of Rich Kids of Instagram. George’s expensive wedding was just par for the course.
    The problem I have with the Clooney wedding was not the excessiveness per se, but the back-patting smugness that has accompanied the entire courtship and ceremony. Even though George and Amal careened around Venice in speedboats, posed up a storm for the paparazzi like modern-day royalty and sold their wedding photos to glossy magazines, they received none of the tut-tutting that was directed at Kim Kardashian. Why? Because Kim Kardashian is perceived as vacant and shameless while George is supposedly a sophisticated humanitarian.
    It is of course admirable that Clooney donates a percentage of his vast salary to charity, and I am glad that he has helped raise awareness about Darfur and the Sudan through his role as a Messenger of Peace at the UN. But how intelligent, and above all, how virtuous is he? All we really know is that is he is good at playing twinkly silver foxes in action films, that he holidays in Lake Como and that he supports various charitable causes. This alone has enabled him to shed his reputation as a hot college dropout from the Midwest and assume a more dignified and statesmanlike mantle.
    An interchangeable collection of cocktail waitresses would no longer do for a man who grew to think of himself as urbane and cultured (even if he does have niggling doubts about his actual knowledge of Giotto and Titian). So he scoured the world far and wide, sampling but not committing to the delicious morsels thrown his way, until the one fateful day that he saw Amal on our website (or so we like to think) and discovered the joys of a hot barrister’s witty badinage.
    Thank god for Amal Alamuddin! The trilingual, Oxford-educated goddess can fill in the gaps in his knowledge (does he speak any languages other than English?) and engage in some very highbrow pillow talk with him. If George is hoping to run for office one day, he couldn’t have chosen a more perfect First Lady. And luckily, in this age of 24/7 media attention, Amal has taken to her newfound fame like a duck to water, radiating “in love” while she struts her stuff in surprisingly short couture dresses.
    The entire Clooney/Alamuddin wedding was a masterful piece of Hollywood magic. It was wildly expensive, carefully choreographed, predictably sentimental and satisfyingly public. Amal and George provided the paparazzi with endless filmic photo ops as they gazed passionately at each other on gondolas named ‘Amore’ and dressed up like Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in Hitchcock’s ‘To Catch a Thief’. Even the choice of Venice, the Disneyland of Italy, is apt.
    Hello! Magazine has just come out with an exciting 40-page spread of the wedding, giving us unlimited access to their intimate and heartfelt ceremony. This seems quite rich given George’s hatred of tabloids and his very public spat with the Daily Mail. While tabloids should obviously be held accountable when they publish lies about George’s mother-in-law, he should also acknowledge the degree to which celebrity culture has made his fame and fortune.
    For the time being George Clooney is more style than substance, and until he has proven himself as a towering intellect, let us see him for what he is: someone who has benefited from the arbitrary rewards of Hollywood and chosen to splash out on a very flashy and self-aggrandising wedding. Please spare us all the do-gooding talk.

    What a nothing story about that "disgruntled" woman missing out on afternoon fucking tea. They gave her a week's notice and suggested an alternative. Sure it's annoying and/or disappointing but it's not like her family turned up for a weekend and got turfed out of the big house to sleep in the stables.

    In other news, Georgie looks a little jaundiced.

    He does look particularly bilious in that Buckinghamshire pic, perhaps the endless celebrations are taking their toll?

    i dunno. if i had scheduled an event two months out, sent out invites, and then it was cancelled with a week's notice, i'd be annoyed, too. pretty shabby behavior by the hotel.

    I agree. At one point it would have been, "Look at me! I'm the one who snagged George Clooney!" But he's way past his prime, so it seems to be tainted by a bit of embarassment, and revulsion. I just don't think she's into him physically, I don't see any chemistry between them at all. Just projecting of course.
