🕊🕊🕊🕊 After their official engagement on 25 December 1965, #GeorgeHarrison married Patricia Anne Boyd on 21 January 1966, in a ceremony at the Leatherhead Register office on Church St. near Ashley St., Epsom, Surrey, with old school mate and fellow Beatle #PaulMcCartney as best man.
Pattie recalls, “I bought a #MaryQuant pinky-red shot-silk dress, which came to just above the knee, and I wore it with creamy stockings and pointy red shoes. On top, because it was January and cold, I wore a red fox-fur coat, also by Mary Quant, that George gave me. She made George a beautiful black Mongolian lamb coat.(See insta story for full length photos.) The ceremony took place early in the morning at Epsom register office, in Surrey, not the most glamorous place, and the room was very hot and stuffy. #BrianEpstein was there and Paul McCartney, who was George's best man. Otherwise it was family – my mother, with her cousin Penny Evans, who had been around a lot while I was growing up. Colin, Jenny, Paula, David and Boo, George's parents(Harold and Louise) and brothers(Peter, Harry). Uncle John, my mother's twin brother, gave me away.” - #PattieBoyd
