04 May, 2023
Sofia Richie Grainge looked on cloud nine as she jetted off to a tropical location for her honeymoon with her husband Elliot. Lionel Richie's daughter Sofia and her husband Elliot Grainge are basking in the idyllic honeymoon experience at One & Only Reethi Rah, one of the best Ultra-luxury resort in the Maldives.
The model, 24, and her partner, 29, married at the luxury Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in the French Riviera on Saturday and after have splurged over $2K/night to stay at One&Only Reethi Rah's Grand Sunset Residence, a 22,809-square-foot two-villa beachfront property with two swimming pools and sleeping capacity for up to 10 people.
The influencer shared snaps of herself in a tropical location on Friday where she and Elliot soaked up the sun at the beach.
Sofia, who boasts 10.8 million followers, has already changed her username to her married name on Instagram and TikTok since their star-studded wedding ceremony at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc in France on April 22.
She has been sharing glimpses of their ultra-luxurious resort experience with her fans, including a romantic beach dinner on Sunday night with Stephen Sanchez's 2022 ballad "Until I Found You" playing in the background.
Sofia looked incredible in a white off the shoulder top with a floral detail which she paired with matching trousers.
Styling her dark blonde locks into an updo, the beauty also sported fuchsia floral earrings and a light palette of makeup.
Elliot kept it casual in a black and white striped shirt as he cosied up to his new wife in a heartwarming snap.
Sofia also shared a photo of the pair enjoying a picturesque bike ride surrounded by palm trees before they went for a dip in the ocean.
The newlyweds had their own private chef create a menu featuring custom cocktails called 'The Elliot' (tequila, agave, lime juice, with optional spiciness) and 'The Sofia' (vodka, fresh blackberries, lime, ginger beer, and mint). The couple enjoyed a creamy fettuccini alfredo-style pasta for dinner.
One of the many enticing amenities of the Grand Sunset Residence is its "outdoor cinema for private silver screen sessions under the stars." Sofia shared a video of her husband lounging as Jay Roach's critically-acclaimed 2000 rom-com Meet the Parents starring Ben Stiller began playing.
During the day, Sofia relaxed in a string bikini, taking in the stunning views of the Indian Ocean.
The Grand Sunset Residence features the resort's longest stretch of private beach.
The couple's honeymoon theme, "Forever Isn't Enough," was incorporated into their custom menu and bedroom sheets.
Sofia showcased her glamour in a $1,995 Rodarte gold sequin mini halter dress with crystal bow and $775 Gianvito Rossi Gwyneth sandals at sunset, accessorizing with a $4,995 Judith Leiber Dachshund Juliet handbag.
The couple started dating in early 2021 and they went Instagram official in April 2021. Sofia and Elliott got engaged in April 2022, taking to Instagram at the time to announce the news as they shared snaps of the sweet candlelight proposal.
