Social media star and renowned model Sofia Richie tied the knot with Elliot Grainge on April 22, 2023. The couple got wed-locked in a magnificent ceremony at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes in the South of France. The happy couple announced the news to their social media followers, who have been showering them with well-wishes and words of congratulations.
The 24 years old model and social media star is the daughter of the R&B legend Lionel Richie. Elliot Grainge, born in the United Kingdom, is a music entrepreneur and is the son of the chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, Sir Lucian Grainge. In January 2020, Billboard honoured Grainge the Elder by bestowing upon him the title of Executive of the Decade.
The wedding was attended by close family members and friends of the couple. Throughout the course of the weekend, Sofia published a number of pre-wedding images, including a post that she and Vogue collaborated on to announce her marriage. The bride wore three different haute couture dresses from Chanel throughout her wedding weekend, and she let Vogue photograph her getting fitted for one of them before the ceremony.
Richie’s parents, four-time Grammy winner Lionel Alexander and four-time Grammy winner Diane Alexander, as well as Richie’s sister Nicole Richie and her husband, Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden, were in attendance at the wedding. Other people that participated in the event included big shots like Paris Hilton and her husband, Carter Reum, as well as Cameron Diaz and her husband Benji Madden, who is the guitarist for Good Charlotte and also Joel’s twin brother.
Richie’s wedding dress was custom-made by Chanel, a famous Parisian designer. Vogue, her future mother-in-law Lady Caroline Grainge, and her best friend Ali Meller all joined the bride-to-be for the final fitting.
The halter-style dress was embellished all over with dainty beading and had a collar-style neckline. The bride chose to have their initials “S&E” and the date of their wedding embroidered on the inside of their wedding gown as their “something blue.”
Speaking about her wedding gown, the bride said, “I always had this vision of the big princess dress and going big, but as I got older, I realised that I wanted something a bit simpler. It’s funny because I’ve never actually worn a princess dress, but I’ve always wanted to.” She described her wedding outfit as simple.
Richie got overwhelmed with emotion as she said, “I’m so excited to be married just because I’m marrying Elliot; I know that sounds so cheesy, but he’s the man of my dreams.”
Wedding photos of newlywed couple Sofia Richie and Elliot Grainge are floating across the internet. Universal Music Group chairman and CEO Sir Lucian Grainge walked his daughter down the aisle while Grainge was escorted by his mother, Lady Caroline Grainge.
We wish the couple a very happy wedding and a great life ahead!
