Paul McCartney married Nancy Shevell yesterday in a small civil ceremony at the same register office in which he married Linda Eastman in 1969. Well, as small as could be managed by one of the most famous men in the world.
The beaming couple emerged from the grey-stone Old Marylebone Town Hall to confetti and cheers from dozens of fans who had waited hours to catch a glimpse of the music legend and his new wife.
Brunette Shevell, 51, wore a knee-length, long-sleeved white dress which reports said was designed by McCartney’s fashion designer daughter Stella.
The bride also had a white flower in her hair and carried a small posy of roses, while “Hey Jude” singer McCartney wore a dark suit and light blue tie. One newspaper had a headline saying: “Yes-today”, in a reference to the famous Beatles song.
