January 21st 1966 – George Marries Pattie Boyd – but Where?

On 21st January 1966, George Harrison married Pattie Boyd. They had met on the set of the Beatles first film – A Hard Day’s Night. Pattie played the part of a schoolgirl.  But where did they get married? There is so much confusion on the internet and in books. Some say Esher Register Office (including Mark Lewisohn’s book ‘The Beatles London’, some say Leatherhead, and some Epsom. Esher is the most commonly quoted as it is just down the road from Kinfauns – George and Pattie’s home.

However it seems Epsom is correct. Here is a first hand account of the wedding from Tony Barrow, one of the guests:

This is how Ashley House looked just after it was built. The house has now been divided into flats.

Pattie ultimately left George for Eric Clapton – although Pattie, George and Eric all remained friends after the separation.
