Nicky Hilton ties the knot

Nicky Hilton has got married to James Rothschild.

The couple, who got engaged in August 2014 while on holiday in Lake Como, Italy, tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Orangery within Kensington Palace in London today (10.07.15) in front of guests including Kate Beckinsale, Petra Ecclestone, James Stunt and Chelsea Clinton.

The 31-year-old hotel heiress walked down the aisle with her father, Richard Hilton, in a custom-made white lace Valentino gown, featuring long sleeves, a dramatic train and a high neck, reportedly worth £50,000.

She also wore a long embroidered veil and carried a bouquet of white roses.

The '365 Style' author, who was also accompanied by her new sister-in-law Alice Rothschild and Maid of Honour and sister Paris Hilton, who wore matching light blue gowns with sparkly belts, arrived for the ceremony in a black Bentley after getting ready at Claridge's Hotel in Mayfair, according to MailOnline.

The 34-year-old DJ posted a touching message to her younger sister on Instagram shortly before the nuptials.

Alongside a photograph of Nicky and James kissing in front of a white cake, she wrote: "So happy that my sister found the man of her dreams. Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."

Nicky, who met the banking heir at Petra and James' wedding in 2011, and her 31-year-old beau kicked off their wedding celebrations at a cocktail party at Spencer House last night (09.07.15).

Sources previously revealed Lionel Richie had agreed to perform at the newlywed's reception on the grounds of the palace.
