George Clooney reveals details of his upcoming nuptials

As he received a Humanitarian Award at the Celebrity Fight Night on Sunday, George Clooney revealed some details about his upcoming wedding.

During his acceptance speech, Clooney, 53, announced that he met his fiancée, Amal Alamuddin, 36, in Italy, and they plan to hold their wedding in Venice "in a couple of weeks."

The event, which was held at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence and benefited the Andrea Bocelli Foundation and The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, also included an auction, to which Clooney donated an Ermanno Scervino crocodile handbag he'd autographed. Sunday marked the first time the event was held outside of the U.S., which made it an opportune moment for Clooney to make his announcement.
