The celebrity couple became the latest in a long list of stars who opted for the privacy of an Irish holiday over the glitz of Italy or the south of France.
The celebrity duo’s star-studded extravaganza in Florence, Italy was the most-watched wedding of the year with millions watching the Kardashian family share a multitude of photos of social media sharing website Instagram.
The couple spent $400,000 to rent the historic Belvedere Fort in Florence, Italy for their big day. The 16th Century fort was built to protect the city, ruled by the famous Medici family and is peppered with priceless works of art dating back to the 1500's.
Some 600 wedding guests enjoyed a panoramic view of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills.
The original guest list consisted of 200 people, which accelerated greatly as the media fixated on the wedding of the year.

Kim was rumoured to be wearing a $2 million designer wedding gown, which she had her final fitting for earlier this week.
The extravagant details of the wedding seem like the work of a Kardashian, but Kim was said to be in the dark about a lot of the finer details until yesterday.
She previously described her fiancé as a ‘‘perfectionist’’ and Kanye is believed to have organised most of the wedding to surprise Kim.
