It was perhaps the most hotly anticipated wedding since William and Kate tied the knot in April. This weekend, American reality TV star Kim Kardashian wed her fiancé Kris Humphries in a lavish Californian ceremony. The couple said ‘I do’ in front of over 400 guests, including Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria and Ryan Seacrest, in an evening service held at a private estate in Montecito.
Final touches were added to the lavish marquee
The bride wore a beautiful gown created by iconic designer Vera Wang. The strapless dress featured intricate lace applique on the bodice, a full skirt and lengthy train. Kim pinned back her hair into a glamorous up-do, opting for a decorative diamond headpiece in place of a tiara. Maids of honour, sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, and the bridesmaids wore ivory gowns, which were rumoured to have been inspired by Pippa Middleton’s infamous look at the Royal Wedding. Not to be out-done by her daughters, mother Kris Jenner went all out in an ivory Vera Wang dress featuring a large bow, sparking rumours that she was attempting to upstage the bride!
The couple have been planning their lavish wedding celebrations since May of this year, when Kris asked Kim to be his wife, presenting her with an impressive engagement ring rumoured to have cost $2million. The band features a whopping 20-carat emerald cut diamond, which is set in a trilogy style with two smaller accompanying diamonds.
