Paul McCartney plans registry office wedding

Former Beatle Paul McCartney posted wedding banns this week at the same registry office where he married his first wife Linda.

McCartney is engaged to New York businesswoman Nancy Shevell.

The posting of banns at the Marylebone Register Office in central London means the singer could marry any time after Sept. 30.

Both Sevell, 51, and McCartney, 69, are divorced. McCartney was married for 29 years to American photographer Linda Eastman until her death of breast cancer in 1998. They married at the same Marylebone venue in 1969.

McCartney had an acrimonious split from his second wife, Heather Mills, in 2007.

McCartney and Shevell started seeing each other in Long Island's Hamptons area in late 2007.

Shevell is vice-president of administration for New England Motor Freight Inc. and the Shevell Group of Companies, based in New Jersey and run by her father, Myron (Mike) Shevell.

She was previously married to New York lawyer Bruce Blakeman and has a teenage son.

McCartney has five children, four from his marriage to Eastman and one with whom he shares parenting with Mills.

Alison Cathcart, Westminster City Council's superintendent registrar, said Friday she would be officiating at the wedding and was "delighted that Paul and Nancy have chosen Marylebone Town Hall for their special day."

The date of the wedding has not been revealed.
