Kidman banned from wedding?: Isabella Cruise and Nicole Kidman, With the bride in black tights and the bridesmaids in pink jumpsuits, the wedding of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s daughter’s was untraditional in many ways.
But perhaps the most surprising break with custom was reported the absence of both Isabella Cruise’s high profile parents and her brother, Connor.
Her immediate family are rumoured to have been kept away from the nuptials to avoid drawing attention to the event.
Kidman, who is performing in Photograph 51 at the Noël Coward theatre, would not have been far away from the ceremony, which took place at the Dorchester Hotel last month. But neither she nor her former husband are believed to have attended.

Their 22-year-old daughter wed British IT consultant Max Parker in a long-sleeved lace dress with black tights in what is believed to have been a Scientology ceremony mixed with Christian elements.
Cruise is a high profile follower of the controversial Scientology religion. He split with his former wife Katie Holmes in part because of her desire to protect their daughter Suri from the religion.
Cruise is thought to have paid for the low-key wedding.

Kidman and Cruise adopted Isabella in 1992 and her 20-year-old brother Connor in 1995. The couple divorced in 2001.
The Daily Mail reported that Kidman had a private dinner with her daughter and her husband before the wedding, but did not attend on the day.
A source told the newspaper: “A source said: ‘Isabella and Max met in London through friends. The ceremony was low-key but very expensive.
“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.
“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. Also, the animosity between Tom and Nicole was probably a factor.”
