Former Beatle forced to turn down the volume at party by Westminster Council

Paul McCartney was forced to turn down the volume at his wedding reception after neighbours complained about the noise.

According to the BBC, the former Beatle, who married Nancy Shevell last weekend (October 9), was asked by officers from Westminster Council to keep the noise down after a complaint was made in St John’s Wood in the early hours of Monday morning.

The council’s Head of Noise and Licensing Andrew Ralph said:

The volume was turned down on request. No further action is being taken.

The ceremony saw McCartney tie the knot for the third time at London’s Marleybone Register Office – the same venue where he married his first wife Linda Eastman. The wedding was also held on the same day as John Lennon‘s birthday.

The newlyweds are reportedly planning a second ceremony next week in the Hamptons area of Long Island, New York, where they fell in love in 2007.

McCartney married Linda at the London register office in 1969. She died in 1998, and McCartney went on to marry Heather Mills. They separated in 2006 and divorced in 2008.
