Sir Paul McCartney's daughter Mary McCartney has married her partner Simon Aboud in secret.
Sir Paul McCartney's daughter has got married in secret.
The Beatles legend was not present to see 40-year-old Mary McCartney - his eldest daughter with late wife Linda - tie the knot with Simon Aboud, 44, at London's Marylebone Register Office last Saturday (12.06.10).
Writer-and-director Simon revealed the news on twitter, posting a picture of the newlyweds with the caption: "We got married on Saturday. Marylebone Registry, just us and the kids, the rings driven up the aisle to us by one of the boys on a remote control dune buggy. Lovely day."
He later posted a picture of the rings sitting in the toy car.
Friends say the photographer was keen to keep her nuptials secret so as not to attract unwanted attention.
A source said: "Paul and Mary are close and always have been, but she decided to keep the event secret from everyone so it would not become a Macca thing."
The marriage is Mary's second, having previously tied the knot with producer Alistair Donald - the father of her sons Arthur, 11, and Elliot, seven - in 1999, before separating in April 2005.
Mary and Simon - who have been together for three years - have a 22-month-old son Sam together.
Paul and Linda previously married at the same place in 1969.
