London: Former Beatles legend Paul Mccartney paid tribute to his new bride Nancy Shevell at their wedding reception by performing a song written in her honour.

The 69-year-old musician married the American heiress in London, and after the registry office ceremony, they hosted a reception in a marquee at the musician`s home.

Guests included Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood and veteran supermodel Twiggy, while superproducer Mark Ronson DJ`d at the party.

Revellers also witnessed a special moment when McCartney took the microphone and performed a new song for his wife, according to the star`s brother and best man Mike.

"It was a lovely song that our kid did and they had a lovely dance together. That was a nice little highlight of the evening," Mike said.

Artist Tracy Emin, who also attended the event, said: "(The song was) very beautiful, very romantic, very lovely, the whole night was a warm family event."
