Nicole Kidman was not invited to daughter Isabella Cruise’s wedding last month, and the Australian actress had no idea the nuptials — a secret Scientology ceremony — were even happening.

We’re told devout Scientologist and proud father-of-the-bride Tom Cruise did attend the wedding at London’s Dorchester Hotel, despite reports he wasn’t there, and sources tell Page Six the date and location were arranged so the star could attend.

“The wedding was a Scientology ceremony,” a source familiar with the family told Page Six. “Nicole wasn’t there — she didn’t even know about it at all.”

We hear that Cruise had been in Europe before the wedding on Sept. 18, and “it was all arranged so he would be there, which he was.”

Cruise had previously been in China, where his latest film, “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” opened Sept. 8.

“Bella” reportedly married a British IT consultant named Max Parker, whom she’s dated for under a year, at a small ceremony. Cruise is said to approve of the union, having spent time with her daughter’s paramour before they wed, and the star even footed the bill for the fête.

Kidman and Cruise adopted Isabella, 22, and son Connor, 20, in the 1990s, and the kids were brought up as Scientologists. Kidman and Cruise divorced in 2001 and Kidman left the church. She’s previously said of the kids, “They live with Tom, which was their choice,” and, “I’ve chosen not to speak publicly about Scientology. I have two children who are Scientologists — Connor and Isabella — and I utterly respect their beliefs.”

Kidman also has two kids with current husband Keith Urban.
Australian magazine Women’s Day first published pics of Isabella and Max’s nuptials, which show the bride in a short white dress and the bridesmaids in quirky pink jumpsuits.
Reps for Cruise, Kidman and Scientology didn’t get back to us. The Dorchester declined to comment.
