Kim and Kanye wedding to be filmed for TV

Los Angeles  - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding will air on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The Bound 2 rapper had been reluctant to have his nuptials filmed for the reality show, but his fiancée has managed to change his mind because it will be much ''easier" for network E! - who shot Kim's 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries - to arrange their dream day in France than if they were to organise it themselves.

A source said: "Kim persuaded Kanye to let the cameras roll because E! will pick up most of the cost of the wedding and it's a lot easier for a network to deal with logistics of a foreign wedding than if it were just the two of them planning it.

"Even though Kim's marriage to Kris Humphries was a disaster, she was very happy with how the wedding and reception turned out. It was flawless.

"Both Kim and Kanye have very high expectations for their wedding. It will be an over-the-top affair and there will be pre-wedding festivities leading up to the big day for their guests. It'll be like a festival!"

The wedding is likely to take place in June, with the couple - who have seven-month-old daughter North together - currently narrowing down locations after having their request to marry at the Palace of Versailles turned down.

The source told "Kim and Kanye have narrowed down the wedding location, which is being kept a secret at this point. It will be on the outskirts of Paris.

'"Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were both hoping to persuade officials during their visit there ... ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm no.

"The couple are looking for something grand, but something that can offer privacy and security."
