Miley Cyrus' father to officiate wedding

Miley Cyrus' father wants to officiate her wedding.

Billy Ray Cyrus is thrilled that his daughter has rekindled her romance with Liam Hemsworth and joked that since he plays a washed-up country music singer who finds himself pretending to be a minister in new show 'Still the King', he can take charge of their ceremony.

Speaking on the 'Today' show, he said: "They're really happy together right now. They know if they need a preacher, they've found one."

Miley, 23 and Liam, 26, broke off their engagement in 2013 after three years of dating before rekindling their relationship a few months ago and Liam recently admitted he thinks the break-up was a good thing.

He said: "Of course it was hard, man. But at the time we were going in different directions and it's just what needed to happen. We were both super young and it was a good decision at the time - we both needed that."

And speaking about their relationship now, he added: "People will figure it out, they already have... They're not dumb.

"I guess when I feel something, then I just feel it and I go for it. I make my decisions about what's going to make me happy, what I think is right and what I want to do - and I don't worry too much outside of that."

It was recently claimed that Miley and Liam are set to tie the knot in Australia after being spotted looking at wedding venues near to the Hemsworth family home in Byron Bay.

An insider shared: "They were discussing potential venues and looking around."

Whilst another source added: "Miley's mentioned she's interested in having a bunch of bouncy houses. Like at a carnival!"

And Miley has also enlisted the help of French designer Simon Jacquemus to help her create a "series" of wedding dresses for the big day.

A source said: "Simon is going to help Miley create a series of quirky outfits. She says there will be five outfit changes throughout the day and pink will definitely be a running theme. Miley is so excited to marry Liam, she wants everything to be fun and perfect. He's much more sensible than Miley, so he might want to veto a few of the ideas."
