(USA TODAY) George Clooney and fiancée Amal Alamuddin are now licensed to wed.

The couple have secured their marriage license in London, People confirms, a notice of which was posted outside Chelsea Old Town Hall, in compliance with a requirement of all U.K. citizens (which lawyer Alamuddin, 36, is).

Though the notice has already been taken down, the destination of their wedding was listed as Italy, the magazine reports. But where exactly in the country — and when — still remains a mystery.

Since the two were engaged in April, the press has, expectedly, been tracking the couple's every move. Clooney, 53, who doesn't normally respond to any tabloid reports, wrote an open letter in USA TODAY that criticized the U.K.'s Daily Mail for reporting a "a completely fabricated story" about his future mother-in-law and her supposed religious concerns about their marriage.

"The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous," he wrote. The Daily Mail then apologized, removing the article from its website. But Clooney wasn't impressed, rejecting the apology, as the paper held that it was "not a fabrication."
