Son of Media Mogul Gets Married

March 27, 1999

YASS, Australia (AP) _ The media prince and the beauty queen were married Saturday in a wedding that not even pouring rain could spoil.

Lachlan Murdoch, the 27-year-old heir apparent to father Rupert’s global media empire, exchanged vows with Australian model Sarah O’Hare, 26, at the family’s sprawling riverside property at Cavan in the Australian Outback, near the national capital Canberra.

The wedding was shrouded in secrecy, although one of the nation’s worst kept secrets. It was confirmed when official photographs were published on the Web site of Murdoch’s News Ltd.

In a statement posted on the site, News Ltd. said 100 guests including the parents of the bride and groom attended the service, conducted in a marquee erected on the banks of the Muribidgee River.

A reception was held on the property, including champagne and fireworks at sunset.
