London - Hollywood actor George Clooney and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin have posted legal notice in London of their plan to marry in Italy, a spokesman for the borough of Kensington and Chelsea said on Thursday.
News of the couple's engagement was confirmed in April when Alamuddin's legal practice in London issued a statement congratulating them.
The banns, or formal notice of the wedding, were posted at Kensington and Chelsea Register office in south-west London from last month until Thursday, the spokesman said.
The couple would have had to visit the office and pay a fee of 35 pounds each before signing the document which was then displayed for 16 days.
Two-time Oscar winner Clooney, 53, has been married once before but since his 1993 divorce from Talia Balsam has remained one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors and had vowed never to remarry.
