Former Beatles member Paul McCartney married his fiancee Nancy Shevell in London on Sunday on the day his late band mate John Lennon would have turned 71.
The Beatles legend, 69, proposed to New York socialite Shevell in May this year after four years together, and they officially tied the knot 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 also received a blessing at a local synagogue on Saturday evening as part of Shevell's Jewish religion ahead of Sunday's traditional civil service.
Reports have come through that Shevell wore a flower in her hair and a simple white dress created by McCartney's fashion designer daughter Stella, who was among the guests at the nuptials along with the singer's former band mate from the Beatles Ringo Starr.
