Congratulations are in order for former Beatles singer Paul McCartney because yesterday he got hitched to this fiancée Nancy Shevell in London, England. This union is Paul‘s third marriage and Nancy‘s second. The couple were joined by family, close friends and at least on other Beatle :D Click below to see a couple photos of the just-married newlyweds and read some deets about their special day.
After days of wedding preparations, Paul McCartney and New York businesswoman Nancy Shevell exchanged vows during an afternoon ceremony in London. The couple, who have been dating since 2007 and were engaged in May were greeted with cheers as they arrived at the Old Marylebone Town Hall, which was opened especially for the event. Shevell, 51, wore a flower in her hair and long-sleeved, v-neck, knee-length ivory dress and shoes by her new stepdaughter, fashion designer Stella McCartney, who also made her father’s navy blue suit. Paul’s youngest daughter Beatrice, 7, served as the flower girl and was seen wearing a long dress under a pink wool coat, and a flower wreath in her hair. As the group left McCartney’s home, the former Beatle, 69, joked to the mass of photographers and reporters outside, “What’s going on? What are you all doing here?” Other wedding guests included Shevell’s college-age son, Arlen, her cousin Barbara Walters, McCartney’s brother Mike, Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, and George Harrison’s widow, Olivia. (Perhaps late Beatle John Lennon was there in spirit: Today would have been his 71th birthday) … The couple are expected to have a stateside celebration later this month.
Here’s hoping that the third time’s the charm :) But seriously, I think Paul and Nancy make a very lovely-looking couple … let’s send the happy couple our warmest wishes and our heartiest congratulations on a very long, very happy life together. Woot!!
