Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have left their daughter North West in the care of her grandmother in order to honeymoon in Ireland.

The high profile pair, who have chosen to spend their first five days as a married couple in Cork, arrived in Ireland yesterday afternoon and are believed to be staying in the five-star Caslemartyr Resort.

It has been confirmed that the hotel's presidential suite has been booked as have seven other rooms on the property, ensuring complete privacy for one of the world's most talked about couples.

The hotel cost alone would add up to €50,000 -  a drop in the hat for the multi-millionaires who spent an estimated €8m on their Florence wedding.

The newlyweds are also said to be planning to spend at least a day in Dublin, one of Kanye’s favourite cities, before jetting back to Los Angeles on Friday.

Kanye and Kim tied the knot at a highly-exclusive private ceremony at the Forte di Belvedere o di San Giorgio Firenze in Florence on Saturday night.

The rapper gave a long, 18-minute toast where he declared himself part of the Kardashian clan and complimented the family for their achievements.

At one point, Kanye referred to them as an "industry" and said they are "the most remarkable people of our time" who can "make the world a better place", according to E! News.

Meanwhile, Kim's younger brother Rob reportedly skipped Kim Kardashian’s wedding because he was worried about photos.

The reality star has been under scrutiny since pictures of him looking considerably heavier emerged last week.

Rob is said to have fought with his family before leaving Florence on Friday night, and new details indicate the disagreement was about his appearance.

“Rob has become so insecure and depressed about his appearance ... he refused to be in the family wedding pics, despite his family's encouragement,” TMZ reports.

The outlet goes on to explain that Rob’s family tried to make him feel better about his looks, but the more they tried to convince him the worse he felt. Finally, he decided to just fly home on Friday and miss the wedding altogether.

Although Rob responded via Twitter to people commenting on his weight (and insisted he didn’t need therapy), it looks as if the TV personality is struggling.

He apparently found being part of Kim’s wedding highly stressful, and despite making the effort to go to Europe in the first place, he couldn’t see it through.

“Rob is not in a good place right now at all and his family should be very worried about him,” a source told Hollywood Life. “He was embarrassed to go to the wedding in the first place because of his weight gain and to be ridiculed by Kim and basically rejected has put him over the edge.
