George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's guests depart wedding in early hours of morning

It was a starry night to remember for George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's guests, who left the wedding celebrations in the early hours of Sunday morning with beaming smiles on their faces.

The star-studded nuptials of the year had the likes of Bono, Matt Damon and Cindy Crawford all in attendance.

One by one the couple's friends were seen departing the Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Venice where they caught vintage water taxis back to their luxury accommodation. It is thought that the majority of guests are staying in the Hotel Cipriani – a short boat ride from St Mark's Square in the city centre.

A makeshift marquee had been erected outside the Aman hotel leading to the floating taxi rank. One of the first guests to emerge was supermodel Cindy, who had attended the wedding with her husband Rande GerberGeorge's best friend.

The brunette beauty drew all attention as she stepped out in her cobalt blue halter neck style gown. Her softly tousled curls were still perfectly in place as she held onto her gold sequined clutch and was helped onto the waiting boat.

English actress Emily Blunt, who was accompanied by her husband John Krasinski, made an elegant exit in a royal blue embellished dress that showed off her incredible post-baby body. The couple welcomed their firstborn baby daughter Hazel in February.

Bono was also seen leaving the nuptials shortly after.

Guests are expected to attend a post-wedding lunch on Sunday. An official civil service ceremony is said to take place on Monday at the end of the four-day Italian celebrations.
