The couple got married on 24 May 2014 after two years of dating, and they are now parents to four children: North West, Psalm West, Chicago West and Saint West.

Kim looked beautiful in a bespoke couture wedding dress designed by Riccardo Tisci, formerly creative director of Givenchy, as she said 'I do' at the 16th-century Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
