Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have wed in a small London ceremony, according to multiple reports.

It came out about a year ago that the pair were dating, when Ora took to social media to reveal they were an item.

She confirmed their relationship back in April 2021, posting a photo of them together.

The 31-year-old captioned the pic: "Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love."

But sources close to the couple have now claimed the Thor director and the 'Poison' singer have finally tied the knot.

They told the Sun: "It was a really intimate ceremony and super special for everyone there. Their nearest and dearest can see how madly in love they are.

"Despite living in the spotlight, Rita is determined to keep the relationship as private as possible and didn’t want to make a big song and dance about the wedding.

"A big, showbiz-style bash is planned to celebrate, but don’t expect to see it being flogged to the highest-bidding magazine."

They added: "Rita’s already back in the studio working on her third album, with her latest session being with Ava Max and Noah Cyrus’ writer Rollo."

A source also confirmed to E! News that the pair had tied the knot.

Speculation the pair were getting hitched grew last week when Waititi, 46, posted a photo of himself pouring a glass of wine.

But it wasn't any normal snap, eagle-eyed fans spotted that Waititi appeared to be wearing a wedding ring.

Ora then posted the exact same photo, only this time she covered his hand with her caption.

This had come after a source told the Sun that the pair were planning a having a small ceremony at some point this summer.

"The plan is to marry abroad, as soon as their respective projects end, with their closest friends and family around them," they said.

"And then there will be a big celebration in London at a later stage, when they get the chance, with all their famous friends there.

"But for now it’s about getting down the aisle and making things official.

"There are a few details to iron out, but it’s coming soon and it’ll be beautifully intimate and perfectly them."

Expanding on the engagement itself, the source said it wasn't a huge thing.

They added: "They didn’t do a whole, 'Will you marry me?' thing and an Instagram post.

"There’s no ring or big build-up. They just got closer and closer and eventually said to each other almost simultaneously, 'I want to marry you'.

"It’s actually really romantic and just exactly the way they are together."

UNILAD has contacted a representative for Rita Ora.
