From telegraph.co.uk, October 9, 2011:

Sir Paul returned to the same venue 42 years later to make US heiress Nancy Shevell his wife number three.

There were no sobbing girls collapsing into the arms of policemen as when he wed Linda Eastman in 1969, although fans from as far afield as Japan turned out for the occasion.

It was also far from rock and roll. Sir Paul, 69, and Miss Shevell visited the gym a few hours before the wedding, and returned for an evening reception in their back garden.

“I feel absolutely wonderful,” Sir Paul said as he hugged his new bride. “I feel terrific. I feel married.”

The musician and Miss Shevell, 51, stepped out of Old Marylebone Town Hall to a shower of confetti. […]

The star reportedly performed a song he composed especially for the occasion, along with Let Me Roll It, Miss Shevell’s favourite Wings record.

From paulmccartney.com, October 13, 11:

Nancy and I want to thank everybody for the wonderful greetings and messages of goodwill that we received. We had a really great day with family and friends; it was relaxed, fun, emotional, heartfelt and a total pleasure for the two of us and everyone involved.

You may have read, in the media, some of the details about our happy day but, as not all of what was reported was totally true, here are a couple of corrections for those of you who like to know the truth:

It was said that my brother, Mike, was my best man. In fact, it was my lovely son, James, who did me proud. It has been said that Stella designed the menu. In actual fact, it was my daughter Mary who did. It was also reported that I sang Let It Be and Let Me Roll It at the reception but, in actual fact, that’s not true and I think the reporters may have got confused by hearing a few of my other songs being played by our DJ for the night, Mark Ronson, who, by the way, did a sensational job, keeping us all bopping till the early hours of the morning.

But even though they got one or two things wrong, what they did get right was that Nancy and I, and all our lovely guests, had an unbelievably great day and send our love to all of you.
