The nuptials of Isabella Cruise and Max Parker might have been a surprise to most of the world but to their friends, it made perfect sense.

“They seem really into each other and are a really nice couple,” a friend of the groom, tells PEOPLE.

Marrying in secret at the Dorchester Hotel in London on September 18, the newlyweds are a perfect match says the pal who went to secondary school in Surrey with Parker. “He’s a really nice guy and she’s lovely and down-to-earth.”

Bella has been quietly living in London for the last couple of years and attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London’s Mayfair to gain her hairdressing qualifications and then went on to study professional make-up at the Delamar Academy in Ealing, West London where she graduated this summer. Parker is a British I.T consultant.

The pal says the 22-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman successfully blends in with the locals during nights out with friends in London.

“Everyone knows who she is but because you are just hanging out in the local pub together, you don’t really think about it,” reveals the source.

The couple were dating less than a year before they wed in a intimate ceremony last month, exchanging vows in front of a group of close friends, without Cruise, Kidman or her brother Connor in attendance.
