Couple will marry at actor's Italian villa

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes will hold a lavish wedding ceremony at George Clooney’s Italian palazzo.

The couple, who have already holidayed at the £1.4million villa on the shores of Lake Como, are said to be hoping to marry next month.

Dawson’s Creek star Katie, 28, and the 42-year-old Mission Impossible hero will tie the knot in a ceremony performed by the local mayor and hoardes of Hollywood stars are expected to attend.

The pair, who’s daughter Suri is now five months old, are thought to have looked at a host of hotels before deciding on Clooney’s villa.

Katie flew out to the popular Italian lake resort after spending time with Victoria Beckham at Paris Fashion Week a fortnight ago.
