Showbiz couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally exchanged their wedding vows on 24 May.

The private ceremony took place at Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, on Saturday.

Kim is said to have walked down the aisle with her stepfather Bruce Jenner, as sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kris, Kylie and Kendall acted as bridesmaids, reported E Online.

The bride looked a pretty sight in a white full sleeve Givenchy gown, which was understood to be designed by Riccardo Tisci. She also sported a long veil.

Kanye donned a Givenchy Tuxedo, which was also designed by Tisci, while their 11-month-old daughter North West also wore a Givenchy outfit. Kanye appeared nervous before the wedding, reported People Magazine.

Kim's mother Kris Jenner was also present at the ceremony, along with several guests, including Jonathan Cheban, Simon Huck, Rachel Roy, LaLa Anthony, Brittny Gastineau, Jaden Smith, Ray Romulus, Monica Rose and Robin Antin. However, Kim's younger brother Rob Kardashian, who has been criticised for his drastic weight gain, gave a miss to the posh ceremony, reported TMZ.

Heavy security was deployed in the 16th century fort, and guests were not allowed to carry their cell phones to the ceremony. Andrea Bocelli and John Legend crooned for the couple's special occasion.

The wedding decorations were strongly of Tuscan influence. The couple exchanged their wedding vows in front of a large wall, decorated with white flowers. An impressive seven-tier wedding cake was made for the couple, as guests were served with Tuscan delicacies.

The wedding festivities had begun when Kim and family landed in Paris a week ago. Kim and Kanye were then spotted shopping in the fashion capital.

The socialite threw a singlehood party with friends on Thursday. A pre-wedding brunch was hosted by designer Valentino on Friday afternoon, and also guests were taken to a tour of Palace of Versailles on Friday night.

Kanye and Kim started dating back in 2012. The rapper proposed to the former model at San Fransicho's AT&T Park in October 2013, four months after the socialite gave birth to their daughter North West in June. This is the rapper's first marriage, while it is Kim's third.

Kim was previously married to basketball star Kris Humphries but the marriage lasted for just 72 days.

Meanwhile, pop star Beyonce Knowles, who was supposed to attend the wedding with husband Jay Z, congratulated the newlyweds on Instagram instead.

The singer posted a family photo of Kim, Kanye and their daughter North and captioned the photo: "Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family."
