Paul McCartney Weds For Third Time
Let's hope third time's a charm for former Beatle Paul McCartney, 69, who married trucking company heiress Nancy Shevell, 51, on Sunday. The couple tied the knot at Old Marylebone Town Hall in London, the same venue where McCartney wed his first wife Linda Eastman in 1969, the Huffington Post reports. Linda died in 1998 after a battle with breast cancer.
Striking a different cord from from his opulent wedding with former model Heather Mills, which led to a bitter divorce in 2008, McCartney's ceremony was comparatively low-key. Close friends and family, including Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, George Harrison's widow, Olivia Harrison, and Shevell's son second cousin Barbara Walters, who is credited with introducing the couple four years earlier at a gathering in the Hamptons.
Shevell, who was previously married to attorney Bruce Blakeman for 20 years, wore a dress designed by McCartney's daughter Stella and received a five-carat s Neil Lane diamond ring on her finger. McCartney looked happy and youthful in a blue suit and matching, skinny tie.
The couple married on what would have been band mate John Lennon's 71st birthday, had he not been assassinated in 1980.
