London: Sir Paul McCartney is set to marry American divorcee Nancy Shevell in a quiet ceremony in London with only close members of his family present.

The couple will then fly to New York, where they will hold a party for friends and members of Shevell’s family.

“Paul loves Nancy very much, but does not want a big wedding,” the Telegraph quoted a friend of the musician, as saying.

In May, the former Beatle proposed to Shevell, 51, with a vintage Cartier engagement diamond ring.
