John and Yoko got married at the British Consulate in Gibraltar. (Interesting note: Paul got married in public and honeymooned in secret, and John did it the other way around – he got married in secret, and honeymooned in public!) This whole event was immortalised in the song ‘The Ballad Of John And Yoko’. Peter Brown acted as best man. They stayed in Gibraltar for a grand total of sixty minutes before flying back to Paris. is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
