Sophie Monk and new husband Joshua Gross ‘ditched guests at their secret wedding due to family rift’ and tied the knot alone inside their Central Coast home instead

Sophie Monk married Joshua Gross last month at a private ceremony at their Central Coast, NSW home.  

According to a new report, a rift in the Monk family may be the reason behind the pair’s decision not to have guests at their nuptials. 

The television host’s parents, mother Sandi and father Andrew, along with her sister Lucy, didn’t attend her wedding due to tensions between them, The Daily Telegraph claimed on Friday.

The paper claims Sophie’s parents moved out of the Coomera River home she shared with them due to the rift, although they’re still said to be on speaking terms.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Sophie Monk for comment.  

Speaking to Stellar Magazine, Sophie called the small wedding, ‘so beautiful and relaxed.’

Sophie says she chose to have a wedding at home to keep things ‘stress-free’ while Joshua calls their private home ‘our sanctuary’ and was glad to make wedding memories that will last a lifetime there. 

Another reason they chose to have a wedding on their own – Sophie was happy to keep the guest list to a bare minimum. 

‘We figured, if you don’t invite one person, then no-one could get upset,’ she told Stellar.

She designed her own dress, and gave J’Aton Couture just two weeks to create it based off her own sketches. 

Joshua proposed on Christmas Day last year, a spokesperson for Sophie later confirmed, but they waited until January to announce their happy news. 

The couple first met on a flight from Europe to Australia in August 2018, and shared a kiss after enjoying ‘three champagnes’ in business class.
