Rupert Murdoch Marries For A Fifth Time, Wedding Elena Zhukova At His Bel Air Vineyard

Rupert Murdoch has married for the fifth time, wedding Elena Zhukova at his Californian vineyard.

Pictures of the couple have been released to Murdoch’s own Sun newspaper following the ceremony which took place Saturday afternoon.

Elena Zhukova’s wedding dress was designed by New Zealand-born, London-based designer Emilia Wickstead.

Murdoch, 93, stood down in November after 70 years leading his company, which owns The Sun and Times newspapers in the UK, as well as Fox News and The Wall Street Journal in the US. He is now chairman emeritus of News Corporation, with his son Lachlan taking over managerial responsibilities.

Zhokova, 63, is a retired molecular biologist. The pair got together last year, following Murdoch’s divorce from his fourth wife, Jerry Hall, and cancelled engagement to former police chaplain and vineyard owner Ann Lesley Smith.
