The couple tied the knot at Spencer House, a mansion in central London. They are expected to hold another ceremony at a church in the city on Saturday.

Murdoch, 84, wore a blue suit while Hall, 59, wore a pale trenchcoat as the couple smiled for photographers following the ceremony.

It is Murdoch’s fourth marriage and the first for 59-year-old Hall, an American, although she had a long-term relationship and four children with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.

The pair first made their relationship public in October at the Rugby World Cup final in London, where they were pictured kissing and cuddling.

They have 10 children between them from previous relationships and went on holiday with several of them on a yacht in the Caribbean after Christmas.

With an estimated fortune of more than $11 billion, Murdoch owns some of the world’s most famous newspaper titles, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post and British tabloid The Sun.
