Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch have celebrated their marriage with a service at the “journalists’ church” in London.

Family and friends of the media mogul and the former supermodel gathered at St Bride’s near Fleet Street a day after their civil ceremony.

The church has a long association with newspapers and writers.

Around 100 guests attended, including the couple’s 10 children from previous relationships.Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall wedding London

It is Rupert Murdoch’s fourth marriage and the first for Herry Hall, 59, after her 1992 Bali wedding to Mick Jagger was later deemed legally void.

Australian-born Rupert Murdoch 84, whose News UK company publishes The Times and The Sun newspapers, tweeted he was “the luckiest and happiest man in world”.

St Bride’s says it offers “a spiritual home to all who work in the media” lying in the heart of an area which was once the home of most UK national newspapers.

Rupert Murdoch’s decision to dispense with his Fleet Street newsroom in the late 1980s marked a key stage in the abandonment of the area by the media industry.
