I Want to Hold Your Hand, Mrs McCartney. SIR PAUL MARRIES WIFE NO.3


Byline: TOM BRYANT; VICTORIA MURPHY

BEAMING from ear to ear, justmarried Sir Paul McCartney yesterday said of his blushing new bride Nancy Shevell: "I love her so, so much."

The 69-year-old, now married for the third time, told one guest at his wedding reception: "She is perfection. I'm so happy."

The former Beatle then made an emotional speech to the star-studded crowd who had gathered in the garden of his pounds 5million home.

Guests, including former band-mate Ringo Starr and his wife Barbara Bach, Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood and musician Jools Holland, cheered as he spoke lovingly of the US heiress, 51.

One guest said: "Paul was in such good spirits and looked very, very proud indeed. His love for Nancy clearly runs very deep indeed."

The groom, whose best man was brother Mike, even sang a specially written song which left his new wife close to tears.

He was also expected to perform Let It Be - which he sang during one of their first holidays together in Morocco three years ago - and his Wings track, Let Me Roll It.

The latter was chosen because it's Nancy's favourite and contains the lyric: "My heart is like a wheel/Let me roll it/Let me roll it to you."

Earlier the couple arrived at Westminster Register Office shortly after 3.25pm with Sir Paul's daughter Beatrice, seven, as a flower girl.

The bride and groom's outfits were both created by Paul's fashion designer daughter Stella.

The singer wore a dark suit with a white shirt and pale blue tie while his bride chose a longsleeved ivory dress with a matching white flower in her hair.

In front of just a handful of family and friends in the same spot he married first wife Linda more than 40 years ago, the pair exchanged rings from LA jeweller Neil Lane.

The bride was given a vintagestyle diamond eternity band featured 5-carats of square cut diamonds set in platinum.

The couple then embraced as Superintendent Registrar Alison Cathcart pronounced them husband and wife.

After the 20-minute ceremony, guests lined the steps to the stone building with cones of rose petals to throw over the happy couple.

The grinning newlyweds held hands as the crowds cheered then laughed as Paul got a petal stuck in his hair and had to shake it off.

Asked how he felt, he said: "Terrific, thank you. I feel married. I feel absolutely wonderful."

After the ceremony, the star's brother Mike said: "I'm feeling lovely for my brother. She's a charming lady. She's one of us now." The veteran US broadcaster Barbara Walters, who is the bride's second cousin, admitted that she had cried when the couple exchanged their vows.
