Details of Elle Macpherson's intimate Fiji wedding revealed
05 AUGUST 2013Elle Macpherson and Jeffrey Soffer's wedding was an intimate day that they wanted to share with just a small group of friends and family.
On the tropical island of Fiji, supermodel Elle and her billionaire property mogul partner Jeffrey tied the knot in front of about 15 guests.
"Jeff and Elle eloped a month ago," a source told PEOPLE. "They wanted to keep it a secret."
"They are very happy and head over heels in love."
The ceremony took place in mid-July and was attended by Australian-born Elle's two sons Arpad Flynn, 15, and ten-year-old Aurelius Cy.
Elle and her fiancé of five months said "I do" in a private villa at the beautiful Laucala Resort, according to WHO magazine.
The immediate wedding party spent a week celebrating the happy union at the resort and guests arrived in the Pacific Ocean paradise at various different times before the couple exchanged their vows.
"This is such a joyful time for Elle and Jeff," a source told WHO. "They are both thrilled."
"Jeff's really normal and a relaxed kind of person," a family friend added. "In that way, actually, he's almost Australian. [The family] think he's great."
The low-key ceremony suited the couple's relaxed style perfectly. Her engagement to Jeffrey in March of this year only became public knowledge when Elle was spotted flashing the diamond ring on a night out in London later that month.
The loved-up couple started dating in 2009 but broke up in March 2012. They rekindled their romance when Jeffrey was involved in a helicopter crash in the Bahamas, which left him with injuries to his spine. His friend Lance Valdez also tragically died in the accident.
Elle, 49, immediately rushed to his side while he was preparing to undergo surgery, and nursed him back to health. At the time a source said, "Elle is landing in Miami imminently to visit him and offer her support at a very tough time."
The Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model judge was previously married to fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon from 1986 to 1989.
She later found love again with French financier Arpad Busson, with whom she had her two sons. Arpad is now in a relationship with Uma Thurman and the couple welcomed their daughter, Luna, in July last year.
Until now, Elle and her boys have been based in the UK, but reports suggest the former Fashion Star host plans to relocate to Miami, Florida in order to be closer to Jeffrey.
