That was fast! Former model Jerry Hall and media mogul Rupert Murdoch officially tied the knot in London on Friday, March 4, less than two months after the pair surprisingly announced their engagement.

Murdoch's News U.K. confirmed that the News Corp chairman, 84, and his fourth wife, 59, formally tied the knot on Friday. They were snapped emerging from London's Spencer House grinning from ear to ear. 

A source tells Us Weekly that Murdoch celebrated his bachelor party in Las Vegas last weekend. He and his new wife will celebrate their wedding with friends and family at St. Bride's Church in London on Saturday, March 5. 

A church spokeswoman tells Us Weekly that the venue has sentimental value to Murdoch since it's located on Fleet Street, which is the original home of Britain's newspapers and media outlets.

All of his six kids and Hall's children will be attending the festivities. A total of 125 guests will attend the celebration. 

This is the first legal marriage for Hall and the fourth for the exec. Multi-billionaire Murdoch was previously married to his third wife, Wendi Deng, for 14 years, before filing for divorce in June 2013. He and Deng, who first met at a cocktail reception, share two young daughters, Grace and Chloe.

Hall's marital history is slightly more complex. The model, who was in a relationship with Mick Jagger from 1977 to 1999, was unofficially married to the rocker for nine years. The famous couple tied the knot in a Bali wedding ceremony in 1990, but their union was declared invalid nine years later during divorce proceedings. She and the Rolling Stones frontman, 72, share four kids, Georgia May, 24, Elizabeth, 32, James, 30, and Gabriel, 18.

Murdoch and Hall first stepped out together in fall 2015, after reportedly being set up by the mogul's family members.
