Age is no detriment to love and romance, and we definitely saw this with the very chic and simple wedding of former supermodel Jerry Hall to Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch.
Jerry Hall, 59, was well known for her glamorous modelling career and her relationship with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger, with whom she shares four children. Rupert Murdoch, 85, was born in Australia to a family that owned several newspapers. He is best known for his global media empire and his creation of FOX Broadcasting in 1986, to name only one of his larger American conquests. He has six children and has been married three times previously.
The somewhat unexpected couple met last summer in Australia and apparently “clicked” immediately. They began to share increasing amounts of time and were spotted together at several key events during the fall. They spent New Year’s Eve together on a yacht in the Caribbean together with some of their children.
Their wedding took place on Friday March 4, in a small ceremony attended by only a handful of close friends and family. The second event took place Saturday with a private civil ceremony at the beautiful St. Bride’s Church in London. Guests included Sir Bob Gelfof and Sir Michael Caine as well as various members of Mick Jagger’s extended family. The couple’s various daughters served as bridesmaids and flower girls and wore different shades of blue. Wedding flowers were white, with the groomsmen sporting white rose boutonnieres. Rupert’s two youngest daughters, Grace and Chloe, carried charming wicker baskets that included ivy, white roses, white spray roses, and delicate white stephanotis.
Jerry wore a lovely ice blue silk gown by Vivienne Westwood and carried a simple bouquet of beautiful lily of the valley.
The family wedding portrait includes Jerry’s children Georgia, Lizzie, James and Gabriel Jagger, as well as Rupert’s children Prudence, Lachlan, Elisabeth, James, Grace and Chloe.
