No hurry for McCartney honeymoon
Sir Paul McCartney and new bride Nancy Shevell are to take their time with their honeymoon by waiting several days before heading off.
It echoes the music legend's first marriage to Linda in 1969 in which the couple were in no rush to head off to the US to visit family.
Sir Paul, 69, tied the knot for the third time yesterday and said he felt "absolutely wonderful" as he emerged from the Old Marylebone Town Hall in central London.
It is understood the couple may wait up to a week before enjoying a honeymoon. However the musician will, as ever, be throwing himself back into work with a tour to prepare for in little more than a month.
Last night family and friends from the world of showbusiness were among the guests at the reception at Sir Paul's north London home. Ex-band mate Ringo Starr said his message for the couple was "peace and love".
Mike McCartney, Sir Paul's brother, said of the ceremony: "It was lovely. I'm feeling happy for my brother."
He added: "Nancy's lovely too. She's one of us now."
James McCartney, Sir Paul's son, and daughters Mary and Stella, were at the celebration as were George Harrison's widow Olivia Harrison and son Dhani. Other guests included Jools Holland, Sharleen Spiteri, Tracey Emin and Jeff Beck.
Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood said he wished the couple a "very happy future" as he walked into the party.
Earlier in the day the happy couple were showered with confetti as they posed for pictures outside the register office, where Sir Paul had also married his first wife Linda. Asked how he felt after the ceremony, Sir Paul said: "Terrific, thank you. I feel married."
