Last weekend, former Beatle Paul McCartney married Nancy Shevell, his girlfriend of four years, at a ceremony full of veg-friendly touches from the fashion to the cuisine. McCartney, a longtime vegetarian and outspoken animal-welfare advocate, offered a three-course vegetarian banquet at his wedding, as well as a vegan cake in addition to a non-vegan chocolate one. Additionally, the bride wore cruelty-free designs, including vegan shoes, from McCartney’s daughter Stella. McCartney became active in animal rights with his first wife, Linda, but vowed to “keep the torch burning” after her death in 1998. According to the UK’s Now magazine, Shevell became vegetarian after she began dating McCartney in 2007.
