Some of the 36-year-old rapper’s most memorable quotes include him comparing his and 33-year-old Kim’s love story to that of Romeo and Juliet, and saying that his job as a rapper is as dangerous as being in the armed forces.

But according to reports, Kanye chose to use his wedding speech to commemorate his new extended family.

The Sun reports that he said: “The Kardahsians are an industry! We are warriors!

“There is not one person at this table that has not had to defend us at one point. Kim is the ideal celebrity. The ideal art, and I can’t wait to be spending every single day of my life with Kim.”

Adding to his praise of Kim’s family, Kanye said: “At this table… the combination of powers… we can make the world a better place!”

US singer John Legend gave a speech before he performed for the new husband and wife. He said: “All these wonderful people here – it’s a celebration of your love.

“I’ve seen Kanye with other women. I’m serious… this is a bad speech but I have never seen him as in to someone as he is in to you Kim.

“He was so into you before he was even with you. He is in love with you. I’m so happy to see you two together.”

According to reports, Kim’s dress was a lace long-sleeved Givenchy Haute Couture gown. After the initial ceremony, she is said to have changed into a white beaded mini-dress with a plunging neckline.
