Former Beatle Paul McCartney married for the third time on Sunday, exchanging vows with American heiress Nancy Shevell at the same London register office where he wed his first wife Linda in 1969.
The beaming couple emerged from the Old Marylebone Town Hall to confetti and cheers from fans who had waited hours.
Shevell, 51, wore a knee-length, long-sleeved white dress that reports said was created by McCartney’s designer daughter Stella.
McCartney, 69, chose a modest civil ceremony before a small group of family and friends. Ringo Starr, the only other surviving member of the ‘Fab Four’, and his wife Barbara Bach were among the guests.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds returned to McCartney’s home in St John’s Wood for a reception.
Asked how he felt after marrying for the third time, he told reporters: “Terrific, thank you. I feel married. I feel absolutely wonderful.”
McCartney was married for 29 years to American photographer Linda until her death from breast cancer in 1998. His marriage to former model Heather Mills was less happy, ending in 2008 after six years.
