McCartney to wed for third time on Sunday: reports
Former Beatle Paul McCartney is set to marry his American fiancee Nancy Shevell in London on Sunday, media reports said.
It would be the 69-year-old pop legend's third marriage, and is thought to be taking place at the same office for civil ceremonies in Marylebone, central London, where he wed his first wife Linda in 1969.
McCartney posted the legally required 16 days notice of his forthcoming marriage on September 16.
According to The Sun and the Daily Mirror, he and New York heiress Shevell will marry on Sunday at Westminster Register Office.
It will be a low-key affair with only about 30 guests, the Daily Mirror reported, followed by a relaxed reception in the garden of McCartney's home in London's upmarket St John's Wood district.
Weddings normally take place from Monday to Saturday but the newspaper said the couple had been granted special dispensation to marry on a Sunday.
Officals at the register office were unable to confirm the reports, and a spokesman for McCartney refused to comment.
McCartney and Shevell, 51, began dating four years ago and announced their engagement in May.
The former Beatle's first wife Linda, a photographer and animal rights campaigner, died from breast cancer in 1998.
He then wed former model Heather Mills in a lavish ceremony in Ireland in 2002, but their marriage ended in a bitter divorce six years later.
