Preparations? Rita’s Instagram post comes as it’s rumoured she’s set to marry director Taika Waititi, 46.
Reports emerged earlier in the week that the British songstress and Taika were engaged and planning an imminent, low-key ceremony abroad before celebrating with their fellow A-listers in a big London bash later this year.
It is understood that Rita, who is working on several films and The Voice Australia, and Taika, who is planning a string of movies, hope to tie the knot once their work commitments have wrapped up.
A friend told The Sun: ‘This isn’t about them doing a big showy thing and crowing about it beforehand. It’s just about them being in love and deciding the time is right to formalise their relationship. They couldn’t be happier.

‘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.”‘
The pal added that there are ‘a few details to iron out’ but the nuptials are ‘coming soon’.
MailOnline contacted representatives for Rita and Taika for comment.

In August, the couple, who began dating in March 2021 after meeting in Australia, were said to be moving so fast in their relationship they started discussing marriage, a source told New Idea.
‘Taika calls Rita “wifey” all the time and chats about how he’s going to be her first and last husband,’ the insider said.
‘Everyone around them downplays it as flirty banter, but [Rita is] definitely hoping he’s for real,’ they continued, adding that she is ‘absolutely obsessed’ with her Thor director beau.
At the time, Rita had reportedly started joking about getting married in a ‘quick, hippy-dippy’ Californian ceremony, and then celebrating with a bigger party at a later date.
Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley, but the pair are believed to have quietly split in 2018.
The pair share two daughters: Te Hinekāhu, ten, and Matewa Kiritapu, six.
