Tom Cruise’s daughter has said ‘I do!’ The 22-year-old makeup artist tied the knot with her boyfriend Max Parker in an intimate and HIGHLY secretive Scientology ceremony in London on Sept. 18. From the bride’s laid-back look to the expensive venue, get all the details on the top-secret wedding here!
Wedding bells were ringing for Isabella Cruise, 22, and her boyfriend Max Parker on Sept. 18! The happy couple surrounded themselves with a small group of friends for their low-key wedding ceremony, which was, among other things, a total secret — Tom Cruise, 53, and Nicole Kidman, 48, weren’t even invited! So what goes on at a Hollywood scion’s top-secret wedding ceremony? We got the details here!
Laid-back though their ceremony may have been, the couple were sure to ring in their love with a bang! Both the ceremony and the reception were reportedly held at the Dochester Hotel in London, which is a five-star venue that routinely caters to those of the A-list variety. Unfortunately, two A-list stars who were noticeably absent from the joyous occasion were Bella’s own parents! As it turns out, Bella and her British IT consultant boyfriend banned both the actor and actress from attending, amid fears that their presence would cause a “media circus,” the Daily Mail UK reports. Still, ever the proud papa, Tom reportedly paid for the event, which was said to be “very expensive.” [CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PICS].
“Tom picked up the bill and paid for everything, but it was decided that neither he nor Nicole should attend as it would have turned the whole event into a circus, ” a source told Daily Mail. “Nicole was actually involved with the wedding preparations and she did have a private dinner with Bella and Max. But she didn’t go to the ceremony.”
Though Max is not a practicing Scientologist like his wife, the ceremony reportedly featured a mixture of Scientology and Christian rituals including a bridal procession, as well as a recital of vows between the bride and groom. One of Max’s groomsmen, Fabiano Calicioli, who is considered to be a renowned Scientologist, was also on hand for the event.
For her special day, Bella opted for a white A-line lace wedding dress, which she paired with contrasting black tights. Her bridesmaids meanwhile all wore matching pale pink jumpsuits that seemed to match perfectly with the couple’s wish for a low-key wedding day.
It seemed like everyone at the ceremony had a wonderful time. Friends of the couple posted images on Facebook of the ceremony and the reception, which appeared to include plenty of quality together time and celebratory drinks. We’re glad to see that Bella and Max were able to enjoy their special day in their own private way. Congrats to the newlyweds!
