McCartney marries again

6:42 am on 10 October 2011

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has married American heiress Nancy Shevell at a ceremony in London.

The couple posed for pictures outside Old Marylebone Town Hall register office after being showered with confetti by wedding guests.

Ms Shevell, 51, from New York, is an heiress to a haulage fortune.

She is Sir Paul's third wife. Linda McCartney died in 1998 and he split from second wife Heather Mills during an acrimonious divorce in 2008.

Ms Shevell wore a white, long-sleeved dress, while the former Beatle wore a dark suit with a white shirt and pale blue tie for the occasion.

She became engaged to Sir Paul in May. They began dating four years ago in the Hamptons area of Long Island.
