PARIS (AFP) - Kanye West and his bride-to-be Kim Kardashian lunched Friday at a French chateau owned by iconic designer Valentino, kicking off a marathon celebration expected to culminate in the wedding of the year.

The 33-year-old reality TV star, one of the world's most recognised faces, and her rapper beau were accompanied by their baby and Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner to the bash at Valentino's historic estate.

The Chateau de Wideville lies west of Paris. The sleepy hamlet where it is located was abuzz as several black sedans rolled into the magnificent property and journalists scrambled to catch sight of the celebrity pair.

A source involved in the event said the couple had requested that the cars transporting their entourage be sprayed with Chanel perfume inside.
