Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have reportedly got married in an ‘intimate’ ceremony in London with their closest friends and family present.

The musician, 31, and film director, 46, recently set the rumour mill spinning that they had secretly got married as Taika was pictured wearing what looked like a wedding band.

Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika was snapped by Rita’s sister wearing a ring on his wedding finger as he relaxed with a glass of wine, with the photo making its way to Instagram.

While neither of the stars have spoken publicly about their rumoured marriage, an insider has claimed the pair have indeed wed – and Rita has changed her name.

As reported by The Sun, a source said the couple were married in London in a ‘really intimate ceremony’ which was ‘super special for everyone there.’

They added: ‘Their nearest and dearest can see how madly in love they are.’

Rita and Taika have been linked since March 2021, but at first kept their relationship tightly under wraps, and this looks set to continue, with the source suggested Rita ‘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.

The outlet also reports that Rita has changed her name following the ceremony, and is now set to go by Mrs Rita Waititi-Ora.

But while rumours abound that the pair have tied the knot, it doesn’t seem like they’re jetting off on a lavish honeymoon anytime soon, with the source claiming the singer is ‘already back in the studio’ working on a new album.

Speculation the pair had wed began last week after Rita’s sister Elena posted a photo of Taika to Instagran that showed a ring on his finger.

And in another eyebrow-raising move, Rita shared the snap to her own Instagram story – but used a caption to cover up his hand.


Rumours had surfaced in June that the pair were set to tie the knot, with sources hinting they planned to have an intimate wedding ceremony this year, before celebrating with a bigger bash later.

The couple began dating in March 2021, and made their red carpet debut that August as they cuddled up at the premiere of The Suicide Squad in Los Angeles.

While Rita and Taika initially kept their relationship on the low-down when they first got together, they have been more open about their romance in recent months, happily packing on the PDA in public.

The pair recently got glammed up together for the red carpet premiere of Taika’s new Thor sequel, looking blissfully in love as they walked hand-in-hand.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to reps for Rita and Taika for comment.
