Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Epic Wedding!
Mr and Mrs Kanye West!

As expected, it was an extravanganza of epic proportions as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wed in Florence, Italy. So while Lana Del Rey performed at the pre-wedding celebrations, on the big day it was John Legend singing All of Me, live of course!

And there were fireworks galore!  

But let's rewind a bit. Kanye was the first to arrive in Florence for the wedding on Saturday (24 May) morning. His bride and several guests touched down hours later.

The big event at the medieval Forte di Belvedere began just before 5pm local time, when guests, including John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen and 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen, started arriving as Andrea Bocelli's Time to Say Goodbye blasted out from loud speakers. Guests were served homemade pasta and beef filet, followed by strawberry sorbet and vanilla wedding cake.  

Reports suggest the wedding party wasn't the only thing to arrive from Paris - the wedding's flowers made the trip too, with roses flown in from Belgium as well.

There was an emotional speech from Kardashian clan matriarch Kris Jenner, which paid tribute to Kim, Kanye and their daughter North, reported E! News. 

Both Kim and Kanye wore Givenchy for the wedding. She chose a sheer-paneled lace custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown by Riccardo Tisci that had long sleeves as well as a floor-length veil. North wore a handmade matching dress while Kanye had on a Givenchy tux. Kim and Kanye's first dance as a married couple was to an Etta James mashup. 

The newlyweds had planned to exchange vows at the Chateau de Versailles, but French law stood in their way as neither bride nor groom resides in the country.

Instead, they toured the grounds of the historic palace on Friday afternoon, before flying back to their base in Paris to host a pre-wedding cocktail party with a performance from Kardashian's favourite singer Lana Del Rey.

Meanwhile, bosses at Adidas chose the wedding day to launch their new 2014 World Cup soccer ad, which features music by Kanye West.

The new commercial for The Dream: All In or Nothing features the rapper repeating the words God Level over footage of soccer superstars like Lionel Messi and Dani Alves.
