Jerry Hall and Rupert Murdoch have begun their second day of wedding celebrations in London.
The former supermodel (59) and billionaire media mogul (84) only announced their engagement in January, just four months after it was revealed they were dating and this weekend, they're making it official.
The high profile pair wed in a civil ceremony yesterday and hosted a church ceremony at St Bride's Church in London, a venue known as the Journalists' Church, considered the 'spiritual home' of those in the media. It holds 200 guests and is closed to the public.
Hall, who has four children with ex-partner of 23 years Mick Jagger, wore a silk grey knee length dress with a veil and a pair of silver Manolo Blahnik block heels. She wore her blonde hair in her trademark waves.
It's the fourth wedding for Murdoch, who arrived in a classic navy suit with his sons Lachlan and James and happily posed for photographers before the ceremony.
Guests at the exclusive service include Bob Geldof, actor Michael Caine, Chief Executive of News UK Rebekah Brooks and her husband Charlie, Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Baroness Lloyd-Webber and Georgia May, Jade and Elizabeth Jagger.
The 84-year-old tweeted: "No more tweets for ten days or ever! Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in world."
Yesterday's civil ceremony was held at Spencer House, a venue which is described on its website as "one of the most sumptuous private residences ever built" in the capital. A spokesman for the Murdoch family confirmed that the ceremony had taken place.
Mr Murdoch and Ms Hall have ten children between them. Ms Hall has two daughters with Mick Jagger, Georgia May (24), and Elizabeth (32). The billionaire media mogul's eldest daughters Prudence (57), and Elizabeth (47), will attend the wedding alongside his younger children, Grace (14), and Chloe (12), from his marriage with Wendi Deng.
