The secret’s out. After months of speculation, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding date and location have been revealed.
The biggest wedding of the year will take place at the 16th-century Belvedere Fort in Florence, Italy, on May 24, a spokeswoman at the Florence mayor’s office told the AP.
The couple rented the fort, located next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens, for $410,000 and a Protestant minister will preside over the ceremony.
Belvedere Fort was built in 1590 and features panoramic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills.
In an interview with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper published Friday, West shared his excitement about the big day. “[I'm] very happy,” he said. “I am a romantic: for Mother’s Day I gave Kim a wall of flowers. Family is everything for me, the antidote to the pressure of fame. Family and creativity relax me. I am happy to create for my family.”
Florence holds a special place in his heart. “I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces,” said West. “It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world—for me the most beautiful in Europe.”
Kanye also revealed that he is working on a new album inspired by his travels to the city. “I am composing an album entirely made in Florence,” he said.
Unlike Kim’s previous wedding to Kris Humphries in 2011, the nuptials will not be filmed for TV. “We are not filming our wedding for ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’” Kim tweeted. “As much as we would love to share these memories on camera, we’ve decided to keep this close to our heart & share thru photos.”
It had previously been believed that the couple was planning to wed in France.
This will be the first marriage for West, who was previously engaged to designer Alexis Phifer, and the third for Kardashian. She was wed to music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 and spent 72 days married to NBA star Kris Humphries.
