People magazine reports a source close to the couple saying:

"George and Amal are trying to keep things very low-key but they also aren't really trying to hide this, it doesn't seem. I think it's like they want the people they love to know that this is real, that they plan on being together forever."

Alamuddin, 36, has represented high-profile clients including the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange.
