Talking about her wedding, Sofia said: “I met my husband in Geneva and worked for him in renewable energies four years ago. I got married to him then but unfortunately couldn’t get the opportunity to celebrate our union due to the pandemic. So we had to postpone the wedding, but now here we are, finally celebrating with all loved ones in such a stunning location.”
Adorned with gold and Paraiba diamond earrings, Sofia also wore a stunning Paraiba diamond ring along with her precious wedding ring of eight carats of pure diamonds from Harry Winston. Sofia looked regal in an exquisite white dress designed by Pnina Tornai, celebrity organiser of the dress ‘love is in the air.’
