Rumours that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will marry in Florence, Italy rather than Paris, France have intensified today, with various publications now citing sources confirming the switch.

It had long been expected that Kim and Kanye would tie the knot in Paris on 24 May; Kim herself even confirmed France as the wedding location during an interview earlier this year.

However, overnight it emerged that Kim and Kanye had actually chosen the beautiful city of Florence to host their nuptials, with Paris being the location of a pre-wedding get together with their nearest and dearest instead.

"I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces,

While Kanye has been spending time in Florence, Kim spent yesterday in New York City at the NBC Universal Upfronts, promoting her TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

She was photographed jetting back to LA this morning but will be back at the airport soon to travel to Europe.

Kim and Kanye became engaged in October 2013 when Kanye proposed in front of Kim's friends and family, hiring a baseball stadium just for the occasion.
