George Clooney is one step closer to walking down the aisle with Amal Alamuddin after the British lawyer reportedly filed official wedding paperwork in London.

The couple is said to be planning to wed in Italy as early as next week, after obtaining a marriage licence in August.

Alamuddin has reportedly given formal notice of her intention to marry during a visit to London’s Chelsea Registry office, a necessary move for all British citizens who plan to wed abroad, according to the New York Daily News.

Alamuddin has also been spotted visiting a high-profile wedding dress designer in London. AAP
