Love Me Do
After months of mourning and re-planning, the McCartneys—led by patriarch Paul, 56—finally celebrated Mary's wedding on Sept. 26 in Peasmarsh, East Sussex, 50 miles south of London. The former Beatle, in a gray pin-striped suit, took the wheel of a blue Rolls-Royce to chauffeur the bride to the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. Wearing a peach-rose gown, Mary, 29, a photographer, walked arm-in-arm with McCartney into the 12th-century church where he gave her away.
At the altar, they joined Donald and Mary's sisters Heather, 35, and Stella, 27—a fashion designer—who served as bridesmaids in mint-green dresses. Their brother James, 21, a musician, decked down in a brown suit with flip-flop sandals, also attended. As some 30 locals cheered them following the 40-minute ceremony, the 80 or so guests rode in coaches to the family farm a half-mile away for a vegetarian reception. Said one onlooker: "It was great to see the family looking so happy after what has obviously been a sad time."
