Remember what was said earlier about "super, super small intimate"? Well, intimate maybe, but the Kimye wedding was hardly super, super small.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West said their "I do's" at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy on Saturday 24 May evening in front of two hundred guests. The bride wore a lacy Givenchy custom gown by Riccardo Tisci, the groom wore a Givenchy tux, and their 11-month-old daughter North wore – you guessed it – Givenchy.

Andrea Bocelli reportedly sang Ave Maria as Kim walked down the aisle to the altar, which was backed by a tall wall of flowers reminiscent of Kanye's Mother's Day gift to her.

The couple was surrounded by their family and close friends, who made up the two hundred guests at the ceremony, as they exchanged their vows in the Italian sunset. The bridal party allegedly consisted of Kim's sisters Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner. Also in attendance was Kim's mother Kris Jenner, Kris' husband Bruce Jenner, and Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick.

The day before, the couple's pre-wedding festivities started with a lunch at Valentino Garavani's estate. By evening, everyone had another wardrobe change in time for a lavish dinner at the Palace of Versailles, where Kim wore a plunging white Margiela dress, and Kanye surprised her by having Lana Del Rey perform a few songs – sorry, no Franco-Rogen Bound 2 parody.

Speaking of wedding performances, John Legend sang the couple their first dance song, All Of Me (the song he wrote his wife for their wedding) at the wedding reception.

Who else was there to celebrate with the married couple? Designers Valentino, Alexander Wang, Olivier Rousteing, Giuseppe Zanotti, Rachel Roy, and Riccardo Tisci; director Steve McQueen, magician David Blaine, hip hop artist Big Sean, actor Jaden Smith (who is Kylie's BFF, so yes of course he was there), and Kim's wedding ring designer Lorraine Schwartz.

Despite the extensive guest list, there were people who were notably missing, including Beyoncé and Jay Z. Their song Drunk In Love which played during the reception may or may not have made up for their absence. Beyoncé also wished the couple "a lifetime of unconditional love" on Instagram. The Kardashian-Jenner family were also missing Brody Jenner and Rob Kardashian.

How long do you think it will be before Mr. and Mrs. West finally release official wedding photos? We hope they don't take too long; we're dying to see Kim's wedding gown in its full elegance, and how cute baby North looked in her matching dress.
