Just hours after saying ‘I Do’ in London, the prolific social media user sent out his most resounding note yet.
“No more tweets for ten days or ever!” writes the head-over-heels 84-year-old.
“Feel like the luckiest AND happiest man in world.”
While details of their honeymoon are secret, reports say Rupert will whisk Jerry, 59, away on his luxurious super-yacht, Vertigo (below), for a few days of cruising around the world’s tropical hotspots.
Reportedly chartered by Leonardo DiCaprio while he was in Australia in 2011, the 67-metre long yacht is like a floating six-star hotel with five luxurious cabins and 11 fulltime staff at users’ beck and call.
The wedding celebrations began with a small civil ceremony where Rupert and Jerry squared away the formalities, before a more formal blessing at St Bride’s Church the next day.
Jerry wore a gorgeous delicate, powder blue dress by her longtime friend, designer Vivienne Westwood.
The happy couple gazed lovingly at each other as they proudly posed outside the church and had their photos taken.
Music by Wagner, Schubert and Vivaldi filled St Bride’s as they celebrated their marriage among family and friends, including Andrew Lloyd Webber, Richard E. Grant, artist Tracey Emin, Michael Caine and Bill Wyman.
The rings were blessed and the newlyweds reaffirmed their marriage vows during the hour-long service, conducted by the Revd Canon Dr Alison Joyce, Rector of St Bride’s church.
The congregation was asked: “Will you, the families and friends of Rupert and Jerry, support and uphold them in their marriage now and in the years to come?” to which they replied “We will.”
Rupert’s son, James, read out a passage from the Bible – 1 Corinthians 13 – to mark the occasion.
The second reading was performed by Gabriel Jagger, Jerry’s son from her previous relationship to the Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
The teenager read an excerpt from the Chinese text Tao te Ching, by Laozi.
Hymns including Amazing Grace and Jerusalem were sung, while St Bride’s choir performed Set Me As A Seal Upon Thine Heart.
The pair then signed St Bride’s register of blessings before exiting the church to the sound of Vivaldi’s Gloria.
When asked by photographers how the service went, Jerry said: “Absolutely wonderful, absolutely wonderful,” according to the Guardian.
