All you need is...Macca's family on your side

By Lindy McDowell

Her new step-daughter Mary took her wedding pics. Her other new step-daughter, Stella, designed her wedding dress.

Nancy Shevell, the new Lady McCartney, hasn't so much gained a husband as an entire in-house design team.

At her registry office wedding at the weekend she looked radiant and beautiful. With her flowing dark hair she actually looked like an add-on Middleton. Like a slightly older version of Pippa - which is an impressive achievement for any 51-year-old.

The groom seemed happy too - although in fairness, he also did the last time round.

This time, though, the celebrations were, according to reports, 'scaled down' from the £1.5m bash held to mark his ill-fated marriage to Heather Mills.

'Scaled down' in rock millionaire-speak entails van-loads of flowers and champers and, according to one newspaper story anyway, a marquee decorated with the family Picassos.

Not quite a barbie in the backyard then.

Interestingly, Sir Paul chose the same venue for the ceremony - performed by Fermanagh woman Alison Cathcart and costing just over £1,500 - as that for his first marriage to the late Linda.

He is also said to have paid tribute to Linda in a speech, but reportedly refrained from making mention of the volatile Heather.

Beatrice, his seven-year-old daughter with Ms Mills, was among the bridesmaids. Like many a wedding these days then, this was also something of a diplomatic minefield.

But it augurs well that the new Lady McCartney at least, has Team McCartney on her side.

As evidenced by that one wedding detail that Heather, for all her splashing out, didn't secure.
