March 12th 1969 – Paul McCartney married Linda Eastman at Marylebone Register Office, London.
The press are out in force, as are lots of Paul McCartney fans, crying their eyes out as Paul has got married.
BTW Linda was NOT part of Eastman Kodak. Her family fled from Russia to escape the progrom against the Jews, and changed their name when they arrived in the US. The original family name was ….Epstein!
Here is colour footage of Paul and Linda’s wedding. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tBX6_98QVg
On the same day, Sgt Norman Pilcher of the drugs squad raids Kinfauns, the home of George and Pattie Harrison. Pattie is at home and George is at Apple in Savile Row. George tells Patti to show the police where the drugs are, before they smash the place up. However, before she has the chance, the police ‘discover’ a huge stash of pot, which wasn’t George and Pattie’s! They’d brought their own, to be on the safe side…
On June 11th 2003, blogger Richard Porter married Irina Dyomkina at Marylebone Register Office (no coincidence!)
