Marriage on her mind! Actress Margot Robbie reportedly married film director Tom Ackerley this weekend in a secret wedding in Australia.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Robbie and Ackerley exchanged vows in Byron Bay. Speculation surrounding a possible wedding started last week when the Suicide Squad actress, 26, was photographed at the airport wearing a particularly telling T-shirt, which read: “Say ‘I Do’ Down Under.’”

The U.K.’s Telegraph reported on Monday that the couple wrote their own vows. Robbie’s estranged father was not in attendance, and the bride was reportedly given away by her mom. Her brother Cameron, meanwhile, teased that he was “on holiday” via Instagram.

The couple never formally announced their engagement, but Robbie hinted at the pending nuptials this past June at the L.A. premiere of The Legend of Tarzan. The actress memorably stepped out wearing a gigantic, pink sparkler on that finger, though it was believed to be costume jewelry.

Robbie first met Ackerley on the set of 2014 drama Suite Française. According to Robbie, meeting the assistant director was a refreshing change of pace in life.

“I was the ultimate single gal. The idea of relationships made me want to vomit,” the Wolf of Wall Street beauty told Vogue this past May. “And then this crept up on me.”

“We were friends for so long,” she continued. “I was always in love with him, but I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’ And then it happened, and I was like, ‘Of course we’re together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.’”
