The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: June 8, 1968

Paul McCartney is best man at his brother Michael’s wedding

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 other Beatles sent congratulatory telegrams. George Harrison and Ringo Starr were both in California, while John Lennon remained in London.

The wedding reception was held at Jim McCartney's home in Gayton, Cheshire. Paul led a singalong around the family piano.
