Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding location have been revealed

Kimye’s wedding is set to 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.

In an interview with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper, 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,” West said. “It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world—for me the most beautiful in Europe.”

The Belvedere Fort was built in 1590 and features panoramic views of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan hills. A Protestant minister will preside over the ceremony. The wedding will not be filmed.

“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.”

This will be Kim’s third marriage. She was previously married to Kris Humphries and music producer Damon Thomas. This will be the first marriage for West, who was previously engaged to designer Alexis Phifer.
