Washington: Sir Paul Mccartney raised a toast to his friend and former bandmate John Lennon during his wedding reception and also dedicated a speech to the star.
The singer married American heiress Nancy Shevell on Lennon’s 71st birthday.
Shevell’s cousin, newswoman Barbara Walters, mentioned in her chat show that there was a toast that McCartney made to John.
“There was a party later on in the tent at Paul’s house, (it’s a) beautiful backyard. There was a toast that Paul made to John Lennon, his 71st birthday it was, and Paul’s son James made a toast and Nancy’s son (did too),” Contactmusic quoted Walters as saying.
Barbara also insisted that the event’s ambience was extremely casual, with the bride and groom even changing into jeans to enjoy the party.
“And she (Shevell) wore, by the way, a long sort of plum colored chiffon dress. And then they went upstairs and put on jeans and T-shirts,” she added.
