Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth seem to have teamed up. Although there is no official confirmation that the two are married, the photos leaked on Sunday that appear to show the couple cutting a wedding cake at a reception.
Then, on Wednesday, Miley seemed to confirm that the wedding had happened when she shared several photos of her and Hemsworth on the Instagram, including one with the caption "Ten Years Later."
In the leaked photos, the singer of "Wrecking Ball" is wearing a white dress, while the Hunger Games the actor wears a tuxedo as he prepares to cut a two-layer cake covered in white frosting and decorated with flowers. Another image shows Mr. and Mrs. Balloons in the background. The surfer of the couple, Conrad Jack Carr, posted the story on the Instagram.
Who participated in Miley's secret marriage?
The "secret" marriage seems to have been a discreet and casual affair at the couple's home in Franklin, Tennessee. (His home in Malibu was destroyed earlier this year in a fire.) Miley's mother, Tish Cyrus, was there, dressed in jeans and black top, as well as the sisters of Miley Brandi and singer / actress Noah.
At least two of Hemsworth's brothers were also at the event. A photo shows Chris Hemsworth – also known as Marvel's Thor – and Luke Hemsworth, who is best known for his work on HBO Westworld, doing a shotski.
One person who was not supposed to be at the wedding was Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus. The singer of "Achy Breaky Heart" could not be present for "personal reasons," an anonymous source told Radar Online.
Why the couple opted for an intimate marriage
Cyrus and Hemsworth have had a relationship again and again since meeting on the set of The last song in 2009. They got engaged in 2012 when Hemsworth gave her a 3.5-carat Neil Lane ring. But the engagement was not quiet, and they gave up a few times before fixing things forever in 2016. Surviving the loss of their California home in the Woolsey Fire in November only seemed to strengthen their bond.
Completely untied by the fires that affect my community. I'm one of the lucky ones. My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE have left safely and that is all that matters now. My house is gone, but memories shared with family and friends remain strong. I'm grateful for

The couple was supposedly called "husband" and "wife" as a joke before they even got married. But Cyrus said earlier that she was in no hurry to get married and saw her engagement as a sign of commitment.
Cyrus also supposedly wanted a little affair instead of a big party if she married. "Miley is rather inflexible about having a small private ceremony," a source told Us magazine in 2017. "But Liam wants a really big wedding, so I'm sure they'll have to compromise."
Miley's mother, Tish, confirmed that her daughter did not want a huge marriage. "Of course, I probably [want a big wedding], "Tish told Mario Lopez when she was a guest on her radio show With Mario last summer. "She would never do that, I do not think. She's a simple, simple girl.
Looks like she got what she wanted.
