Are Liam Payne and his girlfriend planning a secret wedding?!

Los Angeles - Liam Payne has secretly visited a wedding planner.

The One Direction hunk - who has been dating former schoolmate Sophia Smith since August 2013 - was reportedly driven from his Hollywood hotel to the home of Mindy Weiss on 5 May, and stayed at the house for several hours.

A source informed Heat magazine that Liam arrived to see Mindy - who previously planned the nuptials of the likes of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Pink and Carey Hart, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Ellen DeGeneres and Portia Di Rossi - at around 6pm and stayed until "after dark", with his security guard waiting outside the house while he was inside.

Though the Best Song Ever hitmaker has never confirmed he and Sophia are planning to marry, it was claimed they had got engaged in December 2014 after the couple were pictured leaving upmarket jewellers Tiffany in New York.

Liam - who split briefly from Sophia in May 2014 - recently admitted he is finding life on the road away from the brunette beauty difficult.

In March he posted a picture of her on Twitter and added the caption: "I really miss you."
