Here comes the bride... and groom! Kim Kardashian and husband-to-be Kris emerge from their hotel separately for their wedding

By Chris Johnson and Andrea Magrath

Bride-to-be Kim Kardashian emerges from her hotel today, just hours ahead of her wedding.

The reality star left the Four Season hotel in Santa Barbara with some of her family members as they made a short drive to the venue where Kim will say 'I do' to Kris Humphries at a nearby mansion in Montecito, California.

Dressed in a casual white outfit, Kim was make-up free and hiding behind a pair of shade.

Clearly, she is yet to undergo her transformation into blushing bride.

She will marry former New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries today in a lavish ceremony in a sprawling $29m mansion.

Also spotted with her as she made her hotel exit was mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney, who along with Khloe is her co-matron of honour.

Here comes the groom: Kris Humphries emerged separately after the girls departed

Hide and seek: Kourtney helped Kim get into the car and hid her from the view of the waiting paparazzi with a clothes bag

Media frenzy: The sister got into a white car, surrounded by security and crew members from their reality TV show

She will be given away by step-father Bruce Jenner, who was pictured arriving in chauffeur-driven car with Kim's brother Rob.

The California Highway Patrol have been brought in to keep traffic flowing around several closed roads.

It also comes as a big pay day for Kim. U.S. magazine People has bought the rights for the exclusive photographs for a cool $1.5m.

Add to that her fee for the television footage, which will be aired by the E! network in a two-part special.

Plus, she has already pocketed $300,000 for the engagement announcement back in May and another $100,000 from OK! magazine for the bridal shower photos.

Just hours before saying her 'I dos', Kim tweeted her fans, telling them: 'Anxious,excited,emotional 3words 2describe what Im feeling right now @KimKardashian I LOVE U tomorrow will b MAGICAL.'

She also posted a message on her official website: 'Today is the day! I can’t believe it’s finally here! Thank you so much to everyone who made this day happen!!!!!'

Celebrity guests expected today include Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, Serena Williams, Kelly Osbourne and Ryan Seacrest at the lavish affair.

Lindsay Lohan arrived in Santa Barbara last night ahead of the wedding, while Longoria tweeted her excitement, writing: 'So excited for @kimkardashian wedding tomorrow!'

Other rumoured but less likely attendees include Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and Kanye West.

It emerged yesterday that Kim was forced to cut 50 people from her overflowing list, according to Life & Style magazine.

Some of the cut guests included family members of step-father Bruce Jenner.

The magazine claims that after learning of all the filming equipment that will be inside the venue to shoot the party for Kim's E! wedding special, the fire marshal warned Kardashian to cut down the list.

Kim urged her fans to leave messages on her virtual wedding guestbook, adding: 'Even though you can’t all be there to help me celebrate today, it would mean so much to me if you would sign my ‘Virtual Wedding Guestbook‘ by leaving a comment below!'

Her mother and manager, Kris Jenner, is also very excited and barely got a wink of sleep last night.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: 'Morning dolls!! Wow @kimkardashian wedding day is finally here! I wanted to sleep in but too excited.'
