Former Beatle star, Paul Mc Cartney married a New York based business woman Nancy Shevell on the 9th of October at an intimate wedding ceremony with only 30 guests. It was a registered wedding which took place at Marylebone Register Office followed by a reception. Paul’s daughter, Stella Mc Cartney designed the couple’s wedding outfits. Nancy wore a demure ivory knee-length gown, with button detail on the front of the dress and on the sleeve. She carried a simple bouquet of assorted coloured roses while Paul wore a navy coloured suit with a light blue tie. Beatrice, who is Paul’s eight year old daughter from his ex- wife, was the flower girl. She looked very pretty in a dress with a rose pink over coat, ballet slippers and a floral tiara.
The couple was seen working out together at the gym on the wedding morning. They wore dark matching tracksuits and looked relaxed and sporty. The wedding rings were designed by none other than Neil Lane. Paul’s was a simple gold band while Nancy’s wedding ring was an eternity band with 5 carats of square cut diamonds set in platinum. Neil had also designed Nancy’s engagement ring.
The celebrities present at the wedding included Ronnie Wood, Olivia Harrison, Jules Holland and Kate Moss. The guests were offered a choice of champagne or orange juice on arrival. Paul of course sang…. two songs at the reception. First was an iconic song which he wrote for the Beatles–“Let it Be…”and the second song was from his band Paul McCartney & Wings – “Let Me Roll It…” The second song was a special request by his wife Nancy.
Paul’s daughter Mary, who is a professional photographer, covered the entire wedding. A marquee had been set up for the reception and the décor was quite simple with pastel coloured roses and white hydrangeas. The food was a selection of organic vegetarian fare. The desserts comprised of elderflower flavoured crème fraiche with mixed berries and two wedding cakes; one vegan which was made with apples and the other chocolate. Sounds yumm!
On the whole the wedding was very simple and intimate as opposed to a lavish ceremony which most celebrities opt for.
