Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell: officially married

Earlier today, Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell were married over at Old Marylebone Town Hall in London. The civil marriage ceremony lasted for 45 minutes before the couple exited, showered in confetti. The ex-Beatle had his brother, Mike McGear, as his best man while McCartney's 7-year-old daughter Beatrice was the flower girl. The service was small but filled with family and friends. Shevell's dress was designed by Paul's daughter, Stella. Also in attendance was Paul's former bandmate Ringo Starr, his wife actress Barbara Bach, and  Barbara Walters. McCartney's marriage to Shevell is the former Beatle's third marriage. His first marriage was to photographer Linda Eastman in 1969. With Linda, McCartney had three children (Mary, Stella, and James) and adopted Linda's daughter from a previous marriage (Heather). They were married until Linda's untimely death to breast cancer in 1998. McCartney would marry again in 2002 to model Heather Mills. The marriage caused controversy as McCartney decided to not have a pre-nup. They would have one daughter, Beatrice, in 2003. The couple separated in 2006 and were divorced by 2008. For Shevell, this is her second marriage. McCartney is 69 and Shevell is 51.

Congrats to Paul and Nancy!
