Paul McCartney, a renowned member of The Beatles, and his wife Nancy Shevell recently celebrated twelve years of marriage by posting a photo of their holiday in Greece.
The star made a tribute to Shevell with a photo of them together from their holiday in Greece.
“Happy anniversary to my lovely wife, Nancy. Let’s have a great time,” he wrote on social media.
The couple got engaged in May 2011. Their wedding took place in October, 9 of that year at the Old Marylebone Town Hall in London.
Paul’s daughter Stella designed both the wedding dress and her father’s suit. McCartney also unveiled a special song for his bride at their wedding reception.
Paul McCartney’s travels to Greece
Last year Paul McCartney celebrated his 80th birthday aboard a luxury yacht off Mykonos. The Beatles legend who took dips in the Aegean was joined by his wife, daughters Stella, 50, and Mary, 52, Stella’s husband Alasdhair and Mary’s sons Arthur and Elliot.
The musician was greeted with a plethora of birthday wishes on Saturday as a host of celebrities wished him a happy 80th birthday.
Leading the birthday greetings were fellow Beatles’ favorite Ringo Star and their late bandmate John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono while pals, including Ronnie Wood, Mick Hucknall and Piers Morgan, also reached out to him.
Liverpool-born McCartney has been seen in Mykonos before. In 2018, he was spotted taking a stroll on the whitewashed streets of the Greek island with his wife, Nancy Shevell.
The couple, who have been married since 2011, was seen walking among the crowds on the cosmopolitan island. They had arrived in Mykonos aboard a luxury yacht from Athens where they visited the Acropolis.
But McCartney’s association with Greece goes much further back in time when the Beatles traveled to Greece with the aim of buying an island.
In 1967, frustrated with the constraints of live touring and their manufactured public personas, they were exploring new horizons. In 1967 they came up with the idea to buy a Greek island where they could “drop out” (in George Harrison’s words), take drugs, and make music away from the public gaze.
As it turned out, this vision was not merely an idle dream. It came surprisingly close to being realized. The Beatles did indeed – together with their partners and a few close members of their inner circle – visit Greece that summer with the aim of acquiring an island.
They identified one they wanted and began to clear the various official hurdles to buying it.
Due to financial rules at the time, this included obtaining permission from the British government and purchasing a special property currency. A few months later, however, the group abandoned the plans.
McCartney is one of the most successful composers and performers of all time, and he is known for his melodic approach to bass-playing, versatile and wide tenor vocal range, and musical eclecticism, exploring styles ranging from pre–rock ‘n’ roll pop to classical and electronica.
His songwriting partnership with John Lennon remains the most successful in history.
