Share this:

The first official photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as newlyweds have been released. The famous power couple, who married in Florence, Italy on Saturday 24 May, looked the picture of happiness in images that Kim posted on Twitter and Instagram. "Mr. & Mrs. Kanye West," she captioned the first snap which shows the blushing bride and groom walking hand-in-hand down the aisle . Kim,33, had kept uncharacteristically quiet about the nuptials and hadn't posted any photos of her wedding until days after the celebrations.

Kim and Kanye had spent the lead-up to the wedding in Paris — a city close to their hearts. In another photo released on Givenchy's official Instagram page, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is pictured at her final dress fitting at the label's atelier.

The photo, captioned "@kimkardashian with @riccardotisci17 for the final fitting of the wedding dress, at the #Givenchy Couture Salon in Paris #kimyewedding #mrandmrskanyewest#KimKardashian," showed off Kim's hourglass figure and the sweeping effect of the gown, which was complimented with the bride's lace veil.

Calling his bride "the ideal celebrity… the ideal art," Kanye told guests that he was looking forward to "spending every single day of [his] life with Kim". Family and friends enjoyed their dinner seated at a 224-foot imperial marble table, which had been mounted onto a platform giving magnificent views over Florence.
