It must have been a hard day's night for Sir Paul McCartney's neighbours after they complained about the noise in the early hours at his wedding party.

The party at Sir Paul's home in St John's Wood, north London, which reportedly included a DJ set by Mark Ronson, came after the former Beatle tied the knot with New York heiress Nancy Shevell at Westminster Register Office in London.

Ronson, who is friends with John Lennon's son Sean, reportedly played a series of Beatles' songs as well as more modern hits in the set which ended with Hey Jude.

Among the guests were model Twiggy, Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, artist Sam Taylor-Wood and her partner Aaron Johnson, who played Lennon in her film Nowhere Boy.

Enforcement officers arrived at the property at around 1.30am after complaints.

Head of noise and licensing at Westminster City Council Andrew Ralph said: "A complaint was received about an address in St John's Wood. Officers visited and the volume was reduced on request. No further action is being taken."
