October 9, 2011
(JTA) -- Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney reportedly spent the night before his wedding at Yom Kippur services.
McCartney married Jewish-American heiress Nancy Shevell, 51, in London on Sunday. They reportedly attended Yom Kippur services and a break fast at a local London synagogue.
The couple married Sunday in a civil ceremony at London's Marylebone Register Office, followed by a small reception at McCartney's north London home.
McCartney's first wife, Linda Eastman, also was Jewish. She died in 1998 after a battle with breast cancer.
