Paul McCartney to wed Nancy Shevell in same place he married Linda McCartney

Paul McCartney and fiance Nancy Shevell are officially getting married, in the same place where the Beatle and his first wife, Linda McCartney, were wed.

McCartney, 69, and Shevell, 51, will tie the knot at the Old Marylebone Town Hall on a date that has not been specified, People reports. The notice of the wedding was posted this week after the couple met with the City of Westminster’s Superintendant Registrar. It’s customary for an official notice, or banns, to be issued in England to signify a couple’s intent to marry.

Paul and Linda McCartney married at Old Marylebone Town Hall on March 12, 1969, and were happily married until her death in 1998. Paul McCartney and Heather Mills, his second wife, married at Ireland’s Castle Leslie in 2002, where they held a reception for 300 guests. Their marriage did not go as smoothly and ended in 2008 in a messy, very public divorce. McCartney is clearly going back to the nuptials approach that worked the first time.

McCartney and Shevell’s ceremony will be a small affair; the largest room at Old Marylebone accommodates 100 people. (See photos of the venue to get a sense of the place.) Other rockers have wed there as well, including fellow Beatle Ringo Starr and Liam Gallagher of Oasis, a band that was not the Beatles but often sounded like it was.

According to the rules related to the wedding notice, McCartney and Shevell can marry anytime between Sept. 30, 2011, and Sept. 14, 2012.
