Kim Kardashian wants 'immediate' wedding

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian is preparing to tie the knot with Kanye West after the birth of their first child.

The couple - who began dating more than a year ago after a decade long friendship - will welcome their baby in early July and have reportedly set a date for a low-key wedding shortly afterwards.

A source told gossip website "Kim's choice at the moment is a starlight ceremony in California's Big Sur."

The 32-year-old beauty - whose divorce from Kris Humphries was settled last month after a long battle that began in November 2011 when they split after 72 days of marriage - plans to wear an "ethereal white wedding dress".

Kanye doesn't want 'media circus'

But the 35-year-old rapper has warned Kim, who was also previously married to music producer Damon Thomas when she was 20 - that it cannot be a media circus and their wedding photos will not be sold for a profit.

The insider said: "Instead, Kanye says they should consider a donation to one of Kim's charities like the Skin Cancer Foundation, or Mattel Children's Hospital in a deal around the wedding for a short film."

The source also said the couple have been talking "about marriage for a long time, so it's not like Kanye is going to propose and they'll get engaged - its been something they've been looking forward to for a while during the divorce.

"Now that Kim's almost a free woman, she wants an immediate wedding - she wants to marry the father of her baby as soon as possible, but the birth must come first."
