Paul McCartney Marries Nancy Shevell
Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is a married man for the third time.
The 69-year-old musician tied the knot with girlfriend Nancy Shevell on Sunday at the Old Marylebone Town Hall in London. Incidentally, it was also in the same place where McCartney married his first wife, Linda Eastman, in 1969, when the Beatles were at the height of their popularity and success. The ceremony was a small, private event attended only by a few people close to the couple.
Reuters said Shevell, a 51-year-old American heiress, wore a gown designed by McCartney’s daughter, Stella. Among the guests were McCartney’s former bandmate, Ringo Starr, who came to the ceremony with wife Barbara Bach. A reception followed the one-hour ceremony at McCartney’s St. John’s Wood home.
Among the guests at the evening reception were Rolling Stone’s Ronnie Wood and guitarist Jeff Beck. Ex-Beatle George Harrison’s widow Olivia also attended the reception.
Aside from Eastman, who died from cancer in 1998, McCartney was also married to model Heather Mills, whom he divorced in 2008. Shevell, who sits on the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, was married 20 years to an attorney before meeting McCartney.
