Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild 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 yesterday 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.
Nicky Hilton's sister, Paris Hilton, acted as bridesmaid and wore a light blue gown with a sparkly belt. The groom opted for a bespoke Huntsman suit.
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 on Thursday night.
Sources previously revealed Lionel Richie had agreed to perform at the newlywed's reception on the grounds of the palace.
Congrats to the happy couple!

Congratulations to Nicky Hilton - she is engaged to her boyfriend James Rothschild, Us Weekly reports.
According to friends, Nicky's banker beau popped the question last weekend in Lake Como, Italy.
"They are both really excited and incredibly happy," the insider told the magazine.
The 30-year-old Hilton Heiress, and the heir to the famous European banking family, first started dating back in 2011 after meeting at supermodel Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt's wedding in Italy.
"They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend," the source reveals. "He took her out on a boat into the middle of Lake Como and he proposed, got down on one knee and everything. It was incredibly romantic and beautiful."
And he did everything by the book, too! "Last month, he actually flew from England (where he is based) to the States to ask her parents for her hand in marriage!"
What are the newly engaged couple doing now? They're celebrating - but of course. "They are going on a road trip now throughout Europe and celebrating," the source states.
Hilton's rep did not respond to requests for comment.
Well, at least we know who her bridesmaid will be. Step forward Paris Hilton.
