The wedding of former Beatle Paul McCartney over the weekend triggered noise complaints by neighbors and brought the police to the late-night party, the Associated Press reports.

Authorities said McCartney agreed to turn down the volume after the early Monday morning visit by the cops to the U.K. bash, where he was celebrating his marriage to American heiress Nancy Shevell. The officials noted that McCartney is not in any trouble stemming from the incident.

The story reports: “McCartney’s neighbors in the affluent St. John’s Wood neighborhood, which also includes the Abbey Road studios where the Beatles recorded their classic albums, were complaining about recorded music, not McCartney’s own performance, which included an emotional new ballad he wrote for his 51-year-old bride.”

Guests at the event, according to the story, included U.K. rock royalty such as fellow Beatle Ringo Starr, the Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour.
