Kanye and Kim kick off wedding -- with ice cream

19 May 2014 / 2 years 5 months ago

Kim Kardashia arrived in Paris with their 11-month-old daughter, North West, and 12 suitcases in tow today (18.05.14), and immediately met up with her fiancé for some ice-cream to kick start their "wedding week" ahead of their lavish nuptials that will reportedly take place at the Palace of Versailles.

Despite the attention surrounding their big day, a source close to the reality TV star, 33, and the rapper, 36, said they are keeping their guest list to strictly family and close friends, including US tennis star Serena Williams and Kim's childhood pal Brittny Gastineau.

The insider told PEOPLE.com: "The wedding is small and intimate. It's not going to be a big blowout like her last one."

The brunette beauty invited more than 440 people, including Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest, Demi Lovato and Lindsay Lohan, to watch her tie the knot with Kris Humphries in 2011, whom she subsequently split from after just 72 days of marriage, but very few celebrities will watch her become Mrs. West.

The source explained: "This wedding is really about Kim and Kanye and people who have known and loved them for a long time. And everyone who is invited just can't wait for the wedding week to begin!"

The couple are expected to exchange vows in the exclusive Orangerie at the world famous palace, located 12 miles outside the French capital, despite recent rumours their wedding would take place at the Belvedere Fort in Florence, Italy, but are said to have planned multiple other celebrations.
