JUST A year after making their debut as a couple, singer-songwriter Rita Ora and New Zealand director Taika Waititi reportedly wed in a small ceremony in London earlier this month.
Ora and Waititi started dating in March 2021 and went public with their relationship last August and announced their engagement in June.
Now, according to reports, they are throwing a big party to celebrate their secret wedding with family and friends.
The British Tabloid The sun was the first to report the wedding rumours, citing a source who claimed it was “a pretty quiet and super special ceremony for everyone there”, in which close relatives and friends saw the couple to be “madly in love”.
However, Waititi and Ora eventually throw a big celebratory party.
“Despite living in the spotlight, Rita is determined to keep the relationship as private as possible and didn’t want to do a big song and dance about the wedding,” the source added.
Ora could be seen wearing what appears to be a wedding band in a series of Instagram photographs she posted on Sunday, despite the couple having yet to officially declare their marriage.
Similarly, Waititi was pictured wearing her own wedding ring over the weekend on Ora’s sister’s Instagram story.
Ahead of the secret wedding rumour, it was said that the couple were aiming to get married “once their respective work commitments are over”.
It would be Ora’s first marriage, as Waititi was previously married to New Zealand film producer Chelsea Winstanley, whom he secretly divorced in 2018.
