But, why was Gibraltar the only place that they could get married?
A private plane was chartered to dispatch the couple to Gibraltar on March 20th, , for the quick ten-minute ceremony. Having been on the ground for less than an hour, they immediately flew to Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to spend their actual honeymoon, having booked a week in the Presidential Suite at the Hilton. The press seemed to think we were going to make love in public because we made an album with us naked — so they seem to think anything goes We talked to the press We said, 'let's get some peace, peace, peace, peace on the headlines, just for a change!
They stayed overnight at the Hotel Sacher and sampled a bit of their famous Sacher Torte, which was a rich chocolate cake, before viewing the premiere of a film the couple had produced. So when we went to Austria to show it, we did a press conference in a bag. And it was great, because all the press came in and they never saw us — we were both in a bag, and they interviewed the bag.
They were saying, 'Is it really you? If everyone went in a bag for a job there'd be no prejudice; you'd have to judge people on their quality within. We call it total communication. It was a great press conference, and they all had a very serious conversation with a bag.

I'd like to ring up the studio, get some time and we could do it right now. You could play bass and you could play drums,' because he knew I could just about do them. Would I be willing to do the session? I asked Peter rather tentatively if John was 'OK' these days. He understood exactly what I was getting at; as the Beatles' designated minder, he had seen plenty of Lennon at his worst.
And he specifically asked me if I could get you to engineer it. However, John's enthusiasm for this last-minute project rubbed off on Paul, the two of them now determined to tackle this undertaking on a day they had nothing better to do anyway. They may as well make it a productive day off!
