Kim Kardashian ties the knot in evening ceremony

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has married her boyfriend, basketball pro Kris Humphries, in an evening ceremony in Montecito, California.

The socialite – who appears with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney in the hit series Keeping Up With The Kardashians – tied the knot in front of 440 people, with celebrity guests including Demi Moore, Ryan Seacrest, Eva Longoria and Lindsay Lohan.

According to reports Khloe and Kourtney were maids of honour for the 30-year-old, who wore a wedding gown designed by Vera Wang.

The ceremony will be shown as a two-part special on the US entertainment network E! in October.

It is the second marriage for Kim, who was previously wed to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004, and the first for Kris.

The couple began dating in late 2010 and announced their engagement in May, after he proposed on bended knee with a display of rose petals which spelt ‘Will you marry me?’

Kim’s show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which follows the lives of her and her family, began on E! in 2007 and was an instant hit with viewers.

It is currently in its sixth season, and has spawned a string of spin-off shows featuring her and her sisters, including Kourtney and Khloe take Miami, and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

Another show, Khloe and Lamar, focuses on Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom.
