The bride was carrying a simple bouquet of mixed coloured roses while Sir Paul wore a smart navy suit and a light blue tie.
As the couple made their way up the steps Nancy turned around to the crowd and beamed, showing her delight at the day.
The pair were met at the top of the steps by Paul's daughter Beatrice, who took on the role as flower girl.
The eight year old, whose mother is McCartney's ex-wife Heather Mills, looked gorgeous in a pretty dress, a rose pink coat ballet slippers and a floral headdress.
On Sunday, the couple indulged in a pre-wedding workout and were seen leaving a gym together.
Sir Paul was expected to have performed a new song as a gift to his new wife at the reception.
The former Beatle will unveil the song on what would have been John Lennon's 71st birthday.

The couple, who boast a combined fortune of 700million, decided to marry in front of just 30 guests at Marylebone Register Office where Sir Paul married Linda in March 1969.
