Happy anniversary, Mr and Mrs West! Yes, Kim and Kanye have been married for a whole year – and the reality TV star has been sharing throwback snaps of her wedding weekend online.

And while they married in an elaborate €10m ceremony at an estate near Florence, the day before – May 23 – they also attended a brunch reception hosted by Valentino at his spectacular 17th-century Château de Wideville just outside of Paris.

This morning, Kim took to Instagram to share never-released-before images of the day. She can be seen posing up with her then soon-to-be husband, Italian-born designer Valentino, and Giancarlo Giammetti – the fashion house's honorary president. 

In total, a group of 20 – mostly clad in Valentino – was in attendance. Naturally, her sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie were all present – as was her mother, Kris, and grandmother, Mary Jo.

Her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, did not go along, opting instead to stay in central Paris to rest and relax before the big day itself.

At an intimate launch for Valentino: At The Emperor's Table, a big, glossy book released last year, Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley revealed that Valentino only arranged to hold the day-time soiree when he met Kim briefly at the Met Ball in New York on May 5 – less than three weeks before the event itself took place. 

He also said that the brunch kicked-off at 1pm, but had wrapped up two-and-a-half hours later.

Mr West, 37, proposed to Ms Kardashian on her 33rd birthday in October 2013, renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion. It was Kanye's first wedding, though Kim has been married twice before.

It’s exactly a week since Kim and Kanye got married in a special ceremony in Florence.

While everything surrounding Kimye’s big day has been speculation, Kim’s sister, Kendall has finally revealed what it was like to be at her big sister’s wedding.

Kendall said the ceremony itself was beautiful and admitted that she did get a bit teary eyed on the actual day.

“I had some tears in my eyes. I wouldn’t say I was sobbing, but…I had tears in my eyes, yes. It was just beautiful and it was awesome seeing people so happy.”

Awww, how sweet!

Both Kylie and Kendall were out promoting their new PacSun collection, when they were questioned about Kim’s wedding.

The two sisters were also asked who would be more likely to get married next out of the two them, both agreed that it would be Kendall.

Kylie said that she was “..really not a marriage girl,” and Kendall was quick to agree with her sister by confirming that she’s “…more of the marriage girl.”

Hmmm, we think we’ll have to wait a while before Kendall’s big day though.

Au revoir  Paris!

The Kimye wedding festivities have taken flight as the couple and their hundreds of guests have touched down in Italy for the hotly- anticipated ceremony.

The pair are set to say ‘I do’ at Florence’s Forte di Belvedere around 6pm tonight at their star-studded ceremony.

Kim and Kanye will apparently take their vows in front of a giant wall of white flowers, similar to the one Kanye got his soon-to-be-wife for Mother’s Day.

Kanye was spotted stepping off the private jet at the airport in Florence a couple of hours ago, shortly after Bruce Jenner and Scott Disick landed.

Kylie Jenner’s rumoured boyfriend Jaden Smith was one of the many celebrity guests who flew into Florence for the big day.

While Brody Jenner is reportedly boycotting the wedding, his brother Brandon and wife Leah posted a romantic snap on Instagram en route to Florence earlier.

While everything seemed to on track, reports are coming in that catastrophe has struck with the wedding cake, which apparently toppled over on the drive to the airport in Paris!

The cake was said to be seven tiers and about six feet tall.

Let’s just hope they have a back-up on board then!

It’s been ‘their song’ ever since Kanye West chose it for his amazing proposal to Kim Kardashian.

And for months, the rapper has been trying to convince Young and Beautiful singer Lana Del Rey to perform the ballad for him and his bride-to-be.

Kanye’s wish came true, as the singer performed a tear-jerking show for the couple and their family in the French Palace of Versailles last night.

And there apparently wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Before the performance, the couple took their 600 guests for a private guided tour of the Palace followed by lavish dinner on the eve of their wedding at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy later TODAY!

Kimye were joined by a small number of family members earlier yesterday for a lavish lunch at fashion designer Valentino Garavani’s 17th century estate.

Swanky!

The couple and their entourage are said to be flying to Florence via private charter before exchanging vows during a sunset ceremony.

We CAN’T wait!

According to recent rumours, Jay-Z apparently thinks Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s upcoming nuptials are “being blown way out of proportion”.

Even though the 44-year-old rapper is set to be Kanye’s best man, Jay-Z is apparently less than impressed with the fuss that is surrounding Kimye’s big day.

A source close to Jay-Z said: “He likes Kanye and Kim, but totally talks smack about them behind their backs. When he was asked about the wedding he just laughed and said, ‘The circus goes to Paris!’”

Even if that is the case, Jay-Z is probably messing, as sources have already confirmed that Jay-Z will be Kanye’s best man on the big day in Florence.

If the latest rumours are to be believed, Kim and Kanye won’t be getting married in Paris this month, but will be tying the knot in Italy instead.

A source has come out and said that Kanye West’s and Kim Kardashian’s wedding ceremony will be taking place on May 24th in Florence.

“Kardashian and West’s guests will first attend a pre-wedding dinner in Paris and then the couple will fly their guests in private planes to Florence for the actual wedding ceremony.”

Apparently, grey and gold wedding invitations were sent out to guests last April. The invitations asked guests to wear cocktail attire for a dinner in Paris on May 23rd but of course, no location was given for the wedding ceremony the following day.

There could be some truth to this rumour though, as Florence is a favourite spot for both Kim and Kanye as they holidayed there together in 2012.

But other sources have said that no one really knows what’s happening on Kim and Kanye’s big day, as the couple have revealed very little to their guests.

“Kim and Kanye have told all guests different info, No one knows all of the details.”

One thing is for sure, Kimye loves to keep us guessing.
