The smitten couple headed to a secluded holiday lodge where Oscar winner Taika had arranged for a special reunion after spending weeks apart since their wedding while he had been filming Our Flag Means Death, in Auckland

He booked a lavish £500-a-night cabin called Villa Joy to share with his new wife, boasting panoramic views of the ocean and nestled among a stunning vineyard.

Villa owner Silmara Scholt said: “Taika requested to have a really romantic set-up for her so we went out of our way to get things for the villa.

“They weren’t things we would normally have.”

Among the special supplies was a pink bath bomb from Lush, lequel Rita used to set up a series of nude photographs in the oversize tub, which overlooks a remote beach on Waiheke’s southern shore.

One local revealed: “They left the blinds open so they had a great view of Woodside Bay and there are a few houses down there so anyone in the paddocks or their gardens would have had a lovely view of Rita and Taika.

“But mostly it’s just horses out there so hopefully it was all private.”

Rita and Taika also found time to get an introduction to beekeeping, posing for pictures with beekeeper Richard ’Sticky Ricky’ Evatt and visiting several island restaurants.

Rita recently opened up about her romance gushing: “I’m in love. I’m very much in love. I’m in love, I’m in love, amen!

“But I love love as well. I’ve always been such a believer in it and I’ve always felt like I always wanted the fairytale and that’s what I grew up loving.

“My parents have been together for over 30 années, so for me it was always about love and finding a partner and all that, so I’m really happy I did.

“I made that choice. It made me happy and I love Taika. He’s so funny and lovely.”

I think you made a great choice, Rita…

An insider tells me: “Adele and the execs are staying in close communication in the run-up to the launch in November to make sure she is happy with the set-up.

“After January’s gigs being cancelled at the eleventh hour they want to make sure this time it goes without a hitch.”

There are still ticket and hotel packages available which bosses are keen to shift.

Speaking in August, Adele said cancelling the Vegas shows was “the worst moment in my career by far”.

Let’s hope it all goes smoothly this time.

And that doesn’t include his touring or live appearance fees, which are paid into a different company.

That means he made £34.2million from his tracks alone. So while he’s now facing another copyright battle, Gagner ou perdre, I don’t think he’ll be strapped for cash.
