After months of speculation about their plans, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially husband and wife. The couple, who are parents to baby North West, got engaged back in 2013, but the real countdown to their wedding didn't start until March when Kim and Kanye appeared on the cover of US Vogue in what appeared to be bridal attire. And with that, Kimye fever began. So if you don't want to miss a moment of this celeb-tastic extravaganza (and you really don't), we'll be keeping you posted on the news as it arrives with this (very detailed) live blog...
28 May 2014: Mountain biking in Cork
Kimye are currently on their honeymoon in Cork, Ireland and have been taking in all the beautiful countryside has to offer. They've been heading on mountain bike rides, treks and had enjoyed Guinness at a local pub. Plus they enjoyed a hamper of tarts, sandwiches, apple juice and other treats - all made from local produce
'They only booked the day before. They went hiking and biking as this area is well known for it,' a source said. 'The guide said they had an absolute blast. He took them to the pub afterwards where they had a pint of Guinness I believe. They were very generous with their tip - I was told it was four-figure. There were six of them in the group though.'
27 May 2014: And the first official pictures are in!
It only happened on Saturday but already we've got a first look at the official photos from the Kimye Wedding - and wowsers! This wonderous shot shows the newly weds walking down the aisle after saying 'I do' with the incredible wall of flowers behind them (and that rather hot pastor).
But most importantly, at last we can see Kim's Givenchy gown in all its glory. From the sneaky peeks the world had already been treated to, we knew the dress is high-necked and features lace sleeves, but now we've got a closer look at those sheer cut-outs which emphasise the bride's slim waist. And although there's a slight flare out at the knee, the silhouette is sleek and form-fitting. Oh, and Kanye's tuxedo and bow-tie isn't bad either.
Another snap shows the couple kissing with their arms wrapped around each other and Kim's train showing in all its lacy glory. We've never seen a more perfect matchy-matchy moment. You can see more offical images over on eonline.com.
27 May 2014: The honeymoon in Cork
Kim and Kanye have jetted from Paris to Ireland for a honeymoon in East Cork. The couple are staying at the five-star Castlemartyr Resort, meanwhile little North is being babysat by grandma Kris Jenner. Cue photoshopped snaps of them wandering round the town entourage-free.
27 May 2014: Have you heard about Kanye's wedding present?
Kanye's wedding gift for Kim? A portrait of herself, obvs. The rapper has commissioned London artist Bambi to paint a his new wife to mark the occasion - and wants her to look as much like a princess as possible the artwork.
'It's the first non-narcissistic thing Kanye has done because he specifically didn't want to be in the painting himself,' a source told The Daily Star. 'Kanye has said he doesn't care how much the painting costs. This is likely to be Bambi's biggest sale to date.'
26 May 2014: The Kardashians go sightseeing
Back in Paris, the Kardashian family have been making the most of the last of their wedding break by going sightseeing. The gang have visited the Eiffel Tower again as well as Notre Dame. 'No photograph could express the beauty. It took 180 years to build! #notredame,' writes Kourtney Kardashian on Instagram.
26 May 2014: Kanye's wedding speech is leaked
Kanye West's wedding speech has leaked. In it he describes Kim as the 'ideal celebrity...the ideal art' and the rest of the guests as 'the most remarkable people of our time'.
'They feel like it's okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in an SNL spoof. We don't negotiate. We're not like that. We're not stupid. The Kardashians are an industry!' he said. 'We are warriors! There is not one person at this table that has not had to defend us at some point or another' At this table, the combination of powers can make the world a better place.'
7.40pm, 25 May 2014: First look at Kim's second dress of the night
We had heard that Kim got changed (at least once) during the evening, and now we have a first look at her second frock. It's a heavily embellished sleeved dress with a deep plunging V neck. This hasn't been claimed by a designer yet, but it looks to us like it's Balmain. Plus she's posing with Mr Balmain himself, Olivier Rousteing.
7.25pm, 25 May 2014: Here comes the mother of the bride
Kris Jenner is hardly modest when it comes to fashion. She doesn't wear one Chanel item, she wears ten. Thanks to Vogue Italia's Franca Sozzani we have a first look at the mother of the bride's outfit and we have just one word: cleavage. Kris wore a white body-skimming dress with a deep punging neckline.
6.02pm, 25 May 2014: So they weren't just chanting for Justin Beiber
It was reported that crowds were gathered outside of the fort on the off chance they might see Justin Beiber (he didn't show up). But Oliver Rousteing, designer for Balmain, has posted a video of the screaming fans on Instagram so we know they were there to see Kanye.
5.00pm, 25 May 2014: The photo booth Instagrams come flooding in
Judging by Instagram Kim and Kanye spent a LOT of time in that photo booth of theirs. The Instagram flood gates have opened...
2.00pm , 25 May 2014: Finally an Instagram of a dress
Khloe Kardashian posted a teasing picture of the back of, what looks to us, her bridesmaids dress. It's a white body-hugging coloumn dress with simple straps and an elegant slit at the back of the skirt.
1.55pm, 25 May 2014: It's official, Scott Dissick is the sassiest of them all
Seriously, how does he look this dapper after a wedding? Snaps for the LD slippers my lord.

It's not even been 24 hours since the weddings and the Kardashians are already leaving Florence. Kris was spotted at Firenze airport carrying baby North, followed by Kendall, Kylie, Khloe and Jaden Smith. It's a hoods up and shades on kind of day for the Kardashian girls. We've been there.

[Instagram: John Legend]
The singer said in a speech: 'To Kim and Kanye. It's really inspired me to be here. All these wonderful people here - it's a celebration of your love. I've seen Kanye with other women. I'm serious..this is a bad speech....but I have never seen him as in to someone as he is in to you. Kim. He was so in to you before he was even with you. He is in love with you. I am so happy to see you two together.'
12.15pm, 25 May 2014: Phones were banned...
Our source tells us that as guests lined up to enter the wedding on Saturday, they all signed tough non-disclosure contracts as well as handing in their telephones. That explains the lack of selfies from inside the Fort.
Discussing the secrecy of the occasion this morning, poet Malik Yusef, a friend of West’s who attended the wedding said there were “no TV cameras, no cell phones and we were scanned before entering.” That made it a cherished moment “out of the spotlight,” he added. “The media has been venomous about the couple, but people there were full of love,” he said. “You could say what you wanted to say, you could kiss who you wanted to kiss. These people worked like dogs to get here and now they have treated themselves,” he added.
12.05am, 25 May 2014: Let them eat... gold?!
According to our source down on the ground in Florence guests sipped on champagne and one of Italy’s finest reds, the lush, rich Brunello di Montalcino San Filippo Le Lucere, which sells for $80 in the US. This was served with beef filet cooked in the same wine, alongside potato tart seasoned with truffles. Think that sounds fabulous? Other dishes were dusted with flakes of edible gold, an effect which one guest reported made the food glitter, but did not prompt a stomach ache. Thank Yeezus! For more inside details from Florence head right here...
11.35am, 25 May 2014: Take a look inside the venue...
Journalist Sarah Harris posted this picture on Instagram of what she claims is the table settings. If these pictures are real, the decor is klassic Kimye: all white and OTT. For Yeezus sake we hope no one knocked over a glass of red wine...
11.25am, 25 May 2014: Kendall Jenner is the queen of the photo booth
Kendall Jenner practised her supermodel pout at the Kimye wedding, as judging by Instagram she spent a while posing in the photo booth. Anna Wintour, you watching?
10.15 am, 25 May 2014: Who wants to see the Kimye fireworks?
10.05am, 25 May 2014: They had one seriously flattering photo booth
Usually photobooth pictures involve goofy faces, an orange afro wig and clown green glasses. Funny at the time, but not exactly chic. It looks like Kimye had one of the most flattering photobooths of all time, as Instagram is filling with black and white portrait shots.
9.40am, 25 May 2014: Let's talk about this flower wall...
The couple said their vows in front of a 20ft wall of white roses - a bigger version of Kanye's Mother's Day gift to Kim. People is reporting that the floral arrangements come from a shop in Florence, Fiori Della Signoria, and cost more than $100,000. Gulp.
9.20am, 25 May 2014: Is this the Kimye wedding photographer?
Nick Knight has a long history with the Wests as he was the director of the infamous Bound 2 music video. The photographer has posted an Instagram from the wedding writing "it was a pleasure to be a part of it." We couldn't help but wonder... is he the official photographer?
9.00am, 25 May 2014: Florence woke up like this
It's the morning after the night before, and the Kardashians are already awake and back on Instagram. Here come the post-wedding selfies. Kris Jenner posted a morning snap of her with the man of the night, Riccardo Tisci.
8.25am, 25 May 2014: Andrea Bocelli performs in front of the wall of flowers

1:33am, 25 May 2014: Is this the wedding menu?
A picture is doing the rounds on Twitter showing what appears to be the wedding menu. The card shows descriptions of five courses in both English and Italian and is signed off 'Mr and Mrs West'. On the menu? Homemade pasta stuffed with ricotta, monkfish, beef fillet and strawberry sorbet.. followed by wedding cake, of course. Yum!
00:34am, 25 May 2014: Is just us or...
...is anyone else reminded of a certain Duchess? Those lace sleeves, the nipped-in waist, the half-up hair-do, the flowing veil all have us recalling Kate Middleton on her wedding day. After all, there have long been rumours that Kimye wanted a shindig to rival the Royal Wedding's...
00:13am, 24 May 2014: The first Instagram of the blushing bride
Kim's pal and American business woman, Carla DiBello, has just uploaded a black and white snap to Instagram that appears to show the bride on her Big Day. 'Congratulations to Mrs. Kanye West... Most magical night ever ?? ??????,' Carla has captioned the photo, which shows Kim in white lace with a string of pearls around her neck. Is this Instagram's first shot of Mrs West? >hyperventilates<
23:45pm, 24 May 2014: Brother Rob 'bails after family clash'
According to TMZ, Kim's brother Rob skipped the wedding after feeling under pressure about his weight. A video has emerged of the star looking less than cheery at the airport in Florence. Oh crumbs.
23.29pm, 24 May 2014: First pictures of the guests arriving have landed
Snaps of the guests arriving at the Florence Forte are starting to come through. The biggest names so far? Director Steve McQueen who wore a blue suit with a skinny tie, and fashion legend Andre Leon Talley who sported a HUGE red cape. See more pictures of the guests arriving here.
22.35pm, 24 May 2014: The dress is GIVENCHY

22:05, 24 May 2014: First look at The Dress
At last a glimpse at the dress has surfaced! Admittedly, it's not the clearest snap but we can make out lace sleeves (so K-Middy), cut-outs at the waist and a form-fitting bodice that appears to flare out at the knee. And would you check out that veil! Underneath, Kim is wearing her hair loose but slightly pulled off her face. We're big fans. The question is: WHO designed it?

21:43, 24 May 2014: Beyonce sends her congrats
So Beyonce may have been a no-show at the Kimye wedding, choosing to post a bare-faced selfie instead, but ever the lady, she hasn't forgotten to send her well wishes. Taking to Instagram, she wrote 'Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family' along with a shot of the family taken from their US Vogue shoot. All together now: aww!
18:23, 24 May 2014: It's Official!
According to People.com, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are offically man and wife! Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami, performed the ceremony and reports suggest Kanye was the typical nervous groom. Let's celebrate with our favourite ever Kimye moment, shall we?
18:20, 24 May 2014: Wintour also snubbed the invite
As well as Beyonce being M.I.A, Anna Wintour was also forced to skip the shindig. The US Vogue editor, who has been friends with the rapper for years, was among the high profile stars to decline an invitation to the couple's lavish nuptials, but a spokesperson for Anna insisted that it was nothing personal. 'Anna had a longstanding family commitment this weekend and sadly had to miss the wedding,' , a source told the New York Post's Page Six. Despite a few snubs, a number of stars have jetted to Italy for the couple's celebrations, including Chrissy Teigen, André Leon Talley, Jaden Smith, Rachel Roy and rapper Big Sean.
18:07, 24 May 2014: So Beyonce's not there then
Although rumour had it that Jay-Z would be the best man today and he'd be accompanied by his wife, Beyonce has just posted a selfie that suggests she's not at the wedding. In fact, the Instagram snap shows the singer sporting fuss-free braided hair, no makeup and a hardly-wedding-appropriate black vest. And something about the backdrop suggests she's not in a Florence Forte... Is her pared-back look a subtle dig at the Kimye extravagance we wonder?
5:55, 24 May 2014: Details on The Dress
We've had news that Kim's wedding dress flew separately to the bride on a commercial flight. Meanwhile, our source in Paris tells us Kim's hair straighteners and eyelash curlers were behind at the hotel. Blimey, we don't know how she made it up the aisle!
5pm, 24 May 2014: The ceremony begins
Kim and Kanye's wedding has begun! It's 6pm Florence time and this grainy snap gives us a peek at the ceremony. A picture of the couple's incredible wall of flowers has also leaked on Twitter (below) and shows they've opted for a pianist to serenade them on their big day.
4.15pm, 24 May 2014: Guests arrive at the venue
Guests are starting to move from the hotel to the swanky venue, with the service believed to be starting at 6pm local time. A French guest who declined to be named said all male guests have been asked to stick to classic black tie with no frills. Reports also indicate that Kim went straight from her plane to the Forte and will change into the dress inside the venue. So no chances of a sneaky peek at the dress then.
The firsts guests to share snaps of their wedding outfits are John Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen and rapper Tyga. Tyga poses infront of a rather fancy statue and Chrissy shares a car selfie revealing her side-swept fringe and bejewelled dress. As she steps out of the car, onlookers see she's dressed in a black, one shoulder sheath dress with a jewelled corsage. There was a thumbs down from the crowd for one woman wearing a fur wrap in the hot evening.
A source told E! News that Kim arrived at their wedding venue with her grandmother, Mary Jo Shannon. 'A convoy of cars arrived at around 3 p.m. local time. Kim was in the first car, which was a Mercedes-Benz. They drove the car right up and her assistant opened the door and Kim dashed in. She looked to be wearing white,' says an eyewitness. Kourtney was carrying her daughter Penelope and her son Mason--in a red-striped outfit--followed behind. Kris Jenner got out of second car wearing black suit. And she put a big professional camera on a strap on her shoulders.'
Brilliantly, two guests arrived in a bicycle rickshaw, while others arrived in a gold coloured vintage Rolls Royce. Before getting in line to enter, guests gathered for selfies and waved to cheering locals.
As the final guests arrived at 6.30pm the notes of the song Time to Say Goodbye, made famous by Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli, drifted over the ramparts as revellers stood admiring the view over Florence from the ramparts of the fort, glasses of champagne in hand.

Security guards dressed in black suits, black shirts and black ties have closed off a lane running beneath the ramparts of the fort as last deliveries were made. The 60 foot high ramparts, which run round the five sided star shaped fort, form a boundary on one side with the famed Boboli gardens, where beefy security guards were checking shrubbery amid startled tourists.
One security guard is ordering collegues to check all guests with scanning equipment as they entered. 'No phones, no cameras, no exceptions,' he said. 'You have to be very polite and say no phones,' he added.
11.45am, 24 May 2014: Screen of roses set up at Fort
A white v-shaped screen has been set up to shelter a probable marriage ceremony and has been covered in white roses, while a second, grey screen had been set up as a backdrop for a concert, with piles of speakers and lights wired up.
