Sir Paul Mccartney - Sir Paul Mccartney Marries On Lennon's Birthday

Sir Paul Mccartney married his fiancee Nancy Shevell in London on Sunday (09Oct11) on the day his late bandmate John Lennon would have turned 71.
The Beatles legend, 69, proposed to New York socialite Shevell in May (11) after four years together, and they became man and wife on Sunday at London's Westminster registry office at The Old Marylebone Town Hall - the same venue where MCCartney married his first wife, Linda.
The couple received a blessing at a local synagogue on Saturday evening (08Oct11) as part of Shevell's Jewish religion ahead of Sunday's civil service.
Shevell wore a flower in her hair and a simple white dress reportedly created by MCCartney's fashion designer daughter Stella, who was among the guests at the nuptials along with the singer's former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr.
The star's younger brother Mike reportedly acted as best man, while MCCartney's daughter Beatrice, seven, from his marriage to Heather Mills, acted as bridesmaid.
The newly-weds were greeted by crowds of fans and well-wishers as they emerged from the venue to a hail of confetti and they smiled and waved to the spectators before heading off.
The reception is said to be taking place at MCCartney's nearby home in St John's Wood, where workers were seen erecting a marquee in the grounds of the property on Friday (07Oct11). Coloured roses, bags of ice and sound equipment were also seen being delivered to the house.
MCCartney has been married twice before - his first wife, Linda, died of cancer in 1998, and the star divorced Mills in 2008. Shevell has been married once before.
