Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell were married today in London. The former Beatle Paul McCartney and American heiress Nancy Shevell were married Sunday, emerging cheerfully from a 45-minute civil ceremony to be showered with confetti from fans.
The pop icon lifted the bride's arm in triumph as they blew kisses to hundreds of fans and paparazzi waited on the steps of the Old Marylebone Town Hall for the big event. Shevell, with a white flower in her long dark hair, was wearing an elegant, discreet over-the-knee dress designed by McCartney's daughter Stella. He was dressed in a blue suit, a blue tie and a giant grin.
The Beatles legend, 69, and New York businesswoman, 51 , has been together since 2007 after his divorce from Heather Mills. They announced their engagement in May. The couple was greeted with cheers as they arrived at the Old Marylebone Town Hall, which was opened especially for the event.
