Cindy's husband then pulled out two bottles and fist-pumped the air, before boarding the plane headed for the wedding destination. The two friends set up the tequila brand with another close pal Mike Meldman, after deciding to share their favourite tipple which "they serve at their homes in Mexico" with fellow aficionados.

George's bride-to-be Amal Alamuddin is said to have asked her younger sister Tala to act as maid of honour. In keeping with tradition, the lawyer's parents are also believed to be footing the wedding bill while George is expected to cover some portion. It is thought that the Hollywood hotshot and his belle will marry in Venice, Italy – where they first met.
