Kanye ‘wants elephants at wedding’

Kanye West apparently wants his wedding to feature elephants, fire-eaters and acrobats.

The rapper shocked his girlfriend Kim Kardashian by staging a surprise proposal on her 33rd birthday last week. Kanye has already started planning the ceremony and is eager to celebrate their nuptials in style.

“Kanye wants it to be the greatest show on earth. He wants fire-eaters, acrobats and special performances from his musical friends, including Jay Z,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “He’s even suggested hiring elephants for him and Kim to ride on and hand-crafted jeweled Maison Martin Margiela masks for them to wear at the altar.”

While Kim was said to be eager to have a low-key ceremony, Kanye is insisting on blowing the budget.

According to insiders, the Yeezus star is considering celebrating the marriage in three separate locations and he has hired a team to help him organize it.

“Kanye will spare no expense when he and Kim marry. He wants the main event in LA, as well as huge parties in New York and Miami,” an insider revealed. “He’s already hired five assistants to help him with the planning and has joked he wants it to be bigger than the royal wedding.”

Earlier this week, Kim hinted the ceremony could take place in Paris.

Sources close to the pair claim they could even get married as early as the New Year.

Kanye has always been reluctant to have his relationship with Kim played out in front of the cameras for her family TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians. He is believed to be against their baby daughter North appearing on the show, although he did allow his extravagant marriage proposal to be filmed.

While Kim’s mom Kris Jenner would seemingly love to see the wedding feature in their TV show, Kanye has other ideas.

“Kris wants it to be documented on the show, but Kanye is not persuaded,” a source explained.
