LONDON — Former Beatle Paul McCartney and American heiress Nancy Shevell were married on Sunday, emerging joyously from a 45-minute civil marriage ceremony to be showered with confetti from fans.
The pop icon raised his bride’s arm in triumph as they blew kisses to the hundreds of fans and paparazzi waiting on the steps of the Old Marylebone Town Hall for the big event.
Shevell, with a white flower in her long dark hair, wore an elegant, understated above-the-knee gown designed by McCartney’s daughter, Stella. He wore a blue suit, a pale blue tie, and a gigantic grin.
The former moptop wore his tinted hair longish for the occasion, bringing back memories of the days when girls swooned as he sang “All My Loving” and other boy-meets-girl hits.
The loving couple, beaming and relaxed, drove off in a burgundy Lexus for a gala reception at their nearby home in the St. John’s Wood neighborhood.
Champagne and cake awaited, along with guests like Ringo Starr, in a casual black T-shirt under his fitted suit, and his wife, the actress Barbara Bach.
It was something of a memory trip for McCartney — he married his first wife, Linda Eastman, at the same place in 1969, breaking the hearts of teenage girls throughout much of the world.
Details of the ceremony have not been released. Press reports suggest McCartney’s younger brother Mike will serve as best man and his young daughter Beatrice will be flower girl.
A tent had been set up at McCartney’s house nearby in the St. John’s Wood neighborhood, and party decorations and champagne were delivered for a gala reception after the ceremony.
At the reception, the singer-songwriter will reportedly serenade Shevell with a song written in her honor. He also plans to sing “Let it Be”, which he sang to Shevell on one of their first holidays together three years ago, and then her favorite, “Let Me Roll It,” according to the Sunday Mirror.
