Paul McCartney was the best man at his brother Michael’s wedding on this day.
Mike McCartney married Angela Fishwick, a hair stylist, at St Bridget’s Parish Church in the small village of Carrog in Merionethshire, north Wales. It was the same church where the McCartneys’ father Jim had married his second wife in 1966.
The wedding reception was held at Jim McCartney’s home in Gayton, Cheshire. Paul led a singalong around the family piano.
