Paul McCartney Writes Song for Bride, Nancy Shevell
Following their wedding on Sunday (Oct. 9), Paul McCartney and his new wife Nancy Shevell were able to celebrate their bliss with family and friends at a special reception held at their home in the St. John’s Wood neighborhood. During the reception, the bride and groom shared many special moments, including when the singer revealed a special song he wrote just for Shevell and their wedding.
"They had a lovely dance together [to the song]," Mike McCartney, Paul's younger brother, told reporters. "That was a nice little highlight of the evening." The neighbors apparently weren't quite so thrilled, as the festivities apparently got quite loud and went on until three in the morning.
The younger McCartney also served as the best man to his brother for the wedding, which he called "fabulous" and "beautiful." "It was just lovely and peaceful," he says. "Smashing lovely feel. I'm happy for my brother, he's a lovely brother. Nancy is lovely, too. She is a charming lady … She's one of us now!"
The McCartney wedding took place at London's Old Marylebone Town Hall, the same location where the former Beatle member wed his first wife, Linda, in 1969. Those in attendance for the 45-minute ceremony included Beatle drummer Ringo Starr and his actress wife Barbara Bach, the bride's second cousin and TV host Barbara Walters, Rolling Stones member Ronnie Wood, and several fixtures from the 60's, such as Twiggy and artist Peter Blake.
