Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall Are Married!
Posted On Mar 05, 2016
Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall have tied the knot! The media mogul and the former supermodel wed Friday in a civil ceremony at Spencer House, an elegant palace in London that was originally built for an ancestor of Princess Diana’s, John, the first Earl Spencer.
The newlyweds smiled happily as they posed for photographers, following the ceremony. Rupert was wearing a navy blue suit while Jerry was clad in a simple white trench coat over an understated blue dress and flashing her $4 million dollar, 20-carat marquise-cut diamond engagement ring. The News Corporation CEO later took to Twitter to share his joy with his 745, 000 followers, saying, “No more tweets for ten days or ever! Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in [the] world.”
The wedding weekend was just getting started for the couple, who exchanged vows again in a private ceremony Saturday at St. Bride’s Church on Fleet Street, a historic place of worship billed as the “Journalists Church” and “spiritual home of the media”. The bride wore a light blue Vivienne Westwood dress paired with practical flats. Around a hundred guests attended the ceremony, including Rupert’s expansive family, Jerry’s four children with former partner Mick Jagger, celebrities, political dignitaries and major media executives. On the star-studded guest list were Michael Caine, Bob Geldof, Bill Wyman, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tom Stoppard.
Stepping out publicly together for the first time at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards, Rupert and Jerry raised a lot of eyebrows with their whirlwind romance. Proving that age is just a number, the 84-year-old media magnate proposed to the 59-year-old model after just four months of dating. Rupert announced their impending nuptials in one of his own newspapers, placing an advert in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of The Times.
Rupert, whose net worth is estimated at $12.4 billion dollars, has been married three times before. This is the first official marriage for Jerry, whose 1990 union to Mick Jagger was declared invalid during divorce proceedings in 1999.
As unlikely a pair as the two may seem, their happiness together is undeniable. Congratulations to the newlyweds and may they look forward to many years of wedded bliss!
