The couple become husband and wife in Italy

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have exchanged vows on a hillside above the stunning italian city of Florence.

The couple, who had a pre-wedding celebration at the Palace of Versailles in France on Friday night, were snapped at the ceremony in front of a wall of white peonies and roses at the 16th century Forte di Belvedere.

Kanye, 36, loves Tuscany and thinks Kim, 33 – who chose Givenchy for her lace wedding gown – became pregnant with their baby girl North while the couple were staying there.

‘I adore Florence,’ the rapper told Florence’s La Nazione newspaper.

‘I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle. To tell you the truth, I already came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito.

‘I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces.

‘It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world – for me the most beautiful in Europe.’

The view from the Forte di Belvedere is stunning as it looks down on the river flowing through the city, with all its bridges the Duomo.
