Paul McCartney has married his fiancée Nancy Shevell this afternoon (October 9).

The former Beatle tied the knot for the third time at London's Marylebone 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 couple waved to crowds behind security barries after they made the short drive from McCartney's home in London's St John's Wood to the venue.

Earlier fellow Beatle, Ringo Starr was spotted arriving with around 30 other guests, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The couple then returned to their home in St John's Wood for a reception with family and close friends.

When asked how he felt after tying the knot for a third time McCartney told waiting reporters: "Terrific, thank you. I feel married," adding, "I feel absolutely wonderful."

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.
