Tom Cruise reportedly paid for his daughter Isabella's wedding to Max Parker in September, despite not receiving an invite. The 22-year-old wed her partner of less than a year at London's Dorchester Hotel on 18 September, joined by a small group of friends.

Sources told TMZ that the couple wanted to keep their wedding private with neither set of parents invited, despite the fact Isabella's mum Nicole Kidman was also in London to prepare for her role in West End show Photograph 51.

Tom Cruise and his son Connor reportedly didn't attend Isabella's wedding

Reports suggest that Isabella's younger brother Connor also chose not to attend in a bid to keep the nuptials, held in one of the five star hotel's function rooms, as low-key as possible.

Although he wasn't there to walk his daughter down the aisle, Tom was reportedly happy to foot the bill for the nuptials. The wedding involved a Scientology ceremony as Isabella shares her father's beliefs in the faith.

A source told the New York Post: "The wedding was a Scientology ceremony. Nicole wasn't there – she didn't even know about it at all."

Isabella Cruise tied the knot in September

Isabella has been dating IT Consultant Max for less than a year after being introduced through mutual friends. She has been living in London while she works towards a career as a professional make-up artist – she graduated from Delamar Academy of Make-Up and Hair earlier this year.

Tom and Nicole, who divorced in 2001, adopted both Isabella and Connor during their 11-year marriage. Although they have since parted ways and welcomed children in different marriages, Tom and Nicole are said to still play an active role in their lives, with Isabella and Max spending Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Mission Impossible star in 2014.

Meanwhile Nicole has recently spoken about the importance of keeping in touch with her children – Isabella and Connor, plus her daughters Faith and Sunday Rose with husband Keith Urban – while she is travelling with work.

"I have four children, so to stay in touch with them is very important," Nicole told DuJour magazine. "I'm definitely engaged in it [technology] but I don't let it rule my life."
