George Clooney's Lebanese father-in-law said that his daughter Amal Alamuddin's wedding to the Hollywood heartthrob was "very good news" for the turmoil-ridden Middle East.
"The wedding was more than perfect," Ramzi Alamuddin told AFP by telephone from Venice.
Clooney and his Lebanese-British lawyer bride married on Saturday at a star-studded private wedding, and officially tied the knot on Monday.
Ramzi Alamuddin said the wedding was a "grand" but "simple" affair, with close friends and relatives attending an event he described as "good news".
"It is very good news among the bad news we are living now," he said.
"It was grand simple and perfect. The couple really do match," said the actor's new father-in-law.
"The couple was very happy about how they were welcomed in Venice," he said.
Alamuddin said the guest list included "the closest from the family and the closest from friends".
