More celebrity weddings

A delighted Paul McCartney has reached out to his fans to show his gratitude to all those who wished him well for his wedding to Nancy Shevell.

"Nancy and I want to thank everybody for the wonderful greetings and messages of goodwill that we received," said the former Beatle.

"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," he added.

The music icon also wanted to set the record straight about a few details that were reported in error.

"It was said that my brother, Mike, was my best man. In fact, it was my lovely son, James, who did me proud," he corrected.

"It has been said that Stella designed the menu. In actual fact, it was my daughter Mary who did," continued the star.

There was confusion over the music too.

"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," he said.

"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." 

Sir Paul ended on a heartfelt note: "But even though they got one or two things wrong, what they did get right was that Nancy and I, and all our lovely guests, had an unbelievably great day and send our love to all of you."
