Marylebone Register Office, London

Marylebone Register Office, London

In the Swinging Sixties, Paul McCartney exchanged vows with his beloved Linda Eastman here, amid scenes of hysterical grief from his female fans. None of the other Beatles was present, but their supposedly-low-key wedding – on March 12, 1969 – quickly sparked a media frenzy as hundreds of fans mobbed the newlyweds. McCartney's third marriage – to Nancy Shevell – took place at the same venue in 2011. In the 80s, his fellow Beatle, Ringo, also got married here.

Loved by stars for its photogenic architecture and central London location, the Old Marylebone Register Office has more than its fair share of rock ‘n’ roll wedding history and is the city’s busiest register office, having resumed hosting marriages, civil partnerships and baby-naming ceremonies in January 2017 after a £60 million refurbishment and expansion.
