"The date was chosen to honor the birthday of the groom's late father," the rep said.

Cage also confirmed the news, later adding: "It's true, and we are very happy."

The event was described in the representative statement as a very small and intimate wedding that took place in the private courtyard of the Wynn Hotel, being decorated with flowers, candles and fairy lights.

Riko wore a handmade Japanese bridal kimono that had three layers and Nicolas was wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo.

Some of the couple's closest friends and family attended the wedding and Nicolas' representative confirmed that his ex-wife Alice Kim was also in attendance.

"After the wedding, the happy couple [were] joined for a small celebration attended by Nicolas' ex-wife, Alice (who he remains very good friends with) and their son Kal."
