The ceremony was held at Kensington Palace in London, with Nicky’s sister Paris serving as the maid of honour. Prior to the nuptials Paris told People, “They’re so loyal and they’re so in love. They’re like a prince and princess. I think it’s important to find someone you trust and love and spent the rest of your life. I think that’s the meaning of life: to get married and have a family.”
