Third marriage lucky for Rupert Murdoch’s daughter Elisabeth Happy Fairy Tale Romance

Rupert Murdoch’s second eldest daughter Elisabeth Murdoch married for the third time in a lavish wedding in Oxfordshire, England, on Saturday.

The Sydney-born television executive, 48, who has an estimated worth of $262 million, said “I do” to Turner Prize-winning artist, Keith Tyson, 47, after dating for over two years.

“The happiest of days,” Tyson wrote about the day on Instagram.

“Happily ever after,” he added.

The twice-divorced mother-of-four is known for her love of throwing extravagant soirees, particularly her annual New Year’s Eve party, so her third trip up the aisle was no different.

According to the Daily Mail, a barn at her home in the Cotswolds was transformed into a purpose-built party with flowers adorning the ceilings and walls.

The who’s who on the guestlist included former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, Blur’s Alex James, News UK stalwart Rebekah Brooks, art collector Poju Zabludowicz and her sister-in-law, Sarah Murdoch.

It comes just over a year after Rupert said “I do” for the fourth time to Texan model Jerry Hall, 61, in a low-key marriage ceremony at Fleet Street’s historic ‘Journalists’ Church’ in London. Elisabeth acted as a bridesmaid for her step-mother, former wife of Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger.

Numerous celebrities attended including composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, musician Bob Geldof and actors Richard E. Grant and Michael Cain.

Elisabeth is Rupert’s second eldest daughter, and his first child with his second wife Anna Maria Torv, 73. They also had two sons — Lachlan, 45, and James, 44.

The News Corporation boss is also father to Prudence, 59, with his first wife Patricia Booker, and Grace, 15, and Chloe, 14, with his third wife, Wendi Deng, 48.

Elisabeth’s first husband was Elkin Pianim, a Dutch-Ghanaian economist, whom she married in LA in 1993 and divorced in 1998.

She also married PR guru Matthew Freud, the great-grandson of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and nephew of artist Lucian, in 2001. They split in 2014.

After two years of planning Sarah Cummins and her fiancé called off their wedding with only a week to go.

The reason for the sudden cancellation is unknown, but the two were left with a non-refundable booking for 170 guests at the Ritz Charles in Carmel, a suburb north of Indiana.

Not wanting the event to go to waste, Cummins’ decided to host a dinner extending an invitation to local shelter residents and families.

The guest list also included a dozen homeless veterans from the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation.

Cummins’ arranged two buses to pick up the individuals who spent the night being wined and dined. They were treated to a menu including bourbon-glazed meatballs, goat cheese and roasted garlic bruschetta, chicken breast with artichokes and Chardonnay cream sauce and even the wedding cake.

The 25-year-old pharmacy student was determined to make the night a positive experience for herself and her guests.

She told local newspaper, the Indianapolis Star, “I called everyone, cancelled, apologised, cried, called vendors, cried some more and then I started feeling really sick about just throwing all the food I ordered for the reception.”

For Cummins’ this was an opportunity to show her new guests that they deserved to be at a place like the Ritz Charles just as much as anyone else does.

News of Cummins’ act of kindness caused a ripple effect. Indianapolis man, Matt Guanzon was among the many who were inspired, donating suits from his own closet so that attendees could dress up for the event.

Erik Jensen, a guest from Wheeler Mission was grateful to be the recipient of Cummins’ and Araujo’s kindness.

“It’s just a really great opportunity for us… it’s a great opportunity to spread love.”
