InStyle magazine reports on Paul's wedding

Paul publicly thanked his fans for all of their well-wishes -

" "Nancy and I want to thank everybody for the wonderful greetings and messages of goodwill that we received. We had a really great day with family and friends; it was relaxed, fun, emotional, heartfelt and a total pleasure for the two of us and everyone involved."
"You may have read, in the media, some of the details about our happy day but, as not all of what was reported was totally true, here are a couple of corrections for those of you who like to know the truth: It was said that my brother, Mike, was my best man. In fact, it was my lovely son, James, who did me proud. It was also reported that I sang Let It Be and Let Me Roll It at the reception but, in actual fact, that’s not true and I think the reporters may have got confused by hearing a few of my other songs being played by our DJ for the night, Mark Ronson, who, by the way, did a sensational job, keeping us all bopping till the early hours of the morning."Click here  to read Paul's message on his website.


After the ceremony about 100 guests gathered at Paul's London home in St John's Wood for  the reception party, which went until about 3 am.
A vegetarian menu was served, along with both a traditional and a vegan wedding cake. The menu was planned by Paul's daughter Mary.

Nancy changed into a plum colored chiffon dress, also designed by Stella, at the reception.
Later on in the evening both Paul and Nancy traded in their fancy clothes for jeans and t-shirts.

Paul's son and best man James toasted the couple, as did Nancy' s son Arlen.
Paul made a toast to close friend and bandmate John Lennon on what would have been his 71st birthday.

DJ Mark Ronson spun tunes, including Beatles and McCartney songs,  throughout the night.

Neighbors called the police to complain about the noise, and the police arrived around 1:30 to quiet things down.

Although it was widely reported that Paul sang "Let It Be"  and '"Let Me Roll It" to Nancy at the reception, Paul stated in a message on his website that he did not sing the songs, and that passersby probably heard them being spun by the DJ Mark Ronson.

Paul did, however,  sing a lovely and romantic song that he wrote especially for Nancy called "My Valentine".
