When it comes to marriage, Sir Paul McCartney is hardly once bitten, twice shy. After a very messy (not to mention costly) divorce to Heather Mills three years ago, the ex-Beatle must be the world's most diehard romantic.
As 69-year-old Macca serenaded his new bride, 51-year-old American heiress, Nancy Shevell, he wept openly. After the ceremony at the Marylebone Town Hall in central London, the former Beatles front man declared, "I feel absolutely wonderful."
McCartney must be getting sentimental in his old age. He not only got hitched on what would have been band mate and long time collaborator John Lennon's 71st birthday (Lennon was murdered in 1980), McCartney and his third bride tied the knot at the same venue where he wed his first wife, Linda, who lost a battle with breast cancer in 1998. I wonder how Shevell felt about that...
Though the ceremony was only attended by 30 of the pair's closest friends and family, it reportedly cost £1,500 and was done and dusted in just over an hour. Nancy was decked out in a dress by McCartney's famous designer daughter, Stella.
In a note handed out before the service, McCartney asked guests to "politely refrain" from sharing their pictures on social networking sites.
The star-studded after party included supermodel Kate Moss, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, Rolling Stone, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Jools Holland, Sharleen Spiteri, Twiggy, David Frost and artist Tracey Emin.
Mark Ronson played DJ while guests dined into salmon and truffle risotto and 'wined' on £110-a-bottle organic champagne.
Let's hope it's a case of third time lucky for Macca!
