The model and the mogul are married! Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall — who’s also Mick Jagger’s ex — said ‘I do’ during a civil ceremony in London on March 4. And the newly weds seriously looked happier than ever on their big day — congrats you two!
Rupert Murdoch, 84, and Jerry Hall, 59, are now husband and wife! The pair tied the knot in a quiet ceremony at Spencer House in London on March 4. But the celebration isn’t over yet as the couple plans on hosting a private gathering on March 5 to honor their love amongst family and friends. What an adorable pair!
“Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in world,” Rupert tweeted on March 4 after making his relationship with Jerry legal. He also hinted at a lengthy honeymoon for the couple, writing that he may be MIA for the next 10 days. How romantic! But extensive honeymoon or not, one thing is for sure, the joyous festivities are JUST getting started for these newly weds!
Since their vows were exchanged in a more exclusive ceremony, Jerry and Rupert will be holding a small celebration on March 5 at St. Bride’s Church. The guest list consists of about 100 guests and includes the groom’s six children and the bride’s four children. The church, which is located on London’s Fleet Street, is the perfect choice for such a gathering as it’s proclaimed the “spiritual home of the media.” Rupert is, after all, one of the most powerful media barons in the world — Jerry certainly knows how to pick ’em!
No more tweets for ten days or ever! Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in world.

We couldn’t be happier for this couple, who, after the ceremony, were joined by a handful of guests for an informal wedding breakfast at Scott’s restaurant. Rupert’s son Lachlan and his wife Sarah were in attendance along with one of Jerry’s closest friends, Susanne Wyman, wife of Rolling Stones star Bill Wyman. Sounds like the perfect way to begin a life together — surrounded by family and close friends!
While Rupert is no stranger to marriage — this is his fourth time at the alter — it’s Jerry’s first official one. She did participate in a Bali wedding to Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger in 1992, but the ceremony was later deemed legally void. Still, the former couple has four children together and remained longtime partners. Jerry certainly looked stunning on her big day though as her and Rupert beamed from ear-to-ear waiting for photographers to capture them after their special moment. The former model even made sure to flash her £2.4million engagement ring. What a stunner!
Rupert and Jerry got engaged in January of this year after a four-month, whirlwind romance. The couple announced their happy news the old-fashioned way by publishing a classified ad in London’s The Times. Even better – the newspaper is part of Rupert’s massive News Corp. media empire. We are so happy for the couple and wish them all the best!
