CRYPTIC IMAGE ON INSTAGRAM STARTS SPECULATION THAT LARA AND SAM HAVE TIED THE KNOT

UPDATE - Lara is not or has not married Sam Worthington in a beach ceremony, her rep confirms.

Has Lara Bingle walked down the aisle in a secret beach wedding?

That's the question being asked online after Bingle's best friend, Vicki Lee, posted a cryptic image on Instagram today.

The shot showed Bingle standing in a revealing bikini at a beach wedding setup with the caption: "Here comes the bride, all dressed in bikini @mslbingle".

It sparked online speculation Bingle and Hollywood action star boyfriend Sam Worthington may have wed in private.

Later, Bingle commented on the image: "It's vicki and my wedding :)".

Bingle, 26, met Worthington, 37, in New York in September and the pair has been inseparable since.

They've been in Western Australia this week enjoying the summer weather, posting images of themselves holidaying on a multi-million dollar super yacht.

"I can't stop smiling, my cheeks are hurting," Bingle has said of the budding romance.

"Sam is an awesome guy. I am happy, we are happy. He is the most awesome guy, Australians are just really down to earth, very protective and it is nice to have someone around like that."
