John Lennon and Yoko Ono wedding
Originally shared by Ed Pearce
John Lennon married Yoko Ono on March 20, 1969 at the British-owned Rock of Gibraltar in Spain. The Beatles song „The Ballad of John and Yoko” describes their ordeal finding a location for the nuptials.
They originally attempted to marry in Paris, but were caught „standing in the dock at Southampton. Trying to get to Holland or France,” as later documented in „The Ballad Of John And Yoko.” Passport problems keep them from boarding.
During their honeymoon, John Lennon and Yoko Ono hold their first Bed-In for Peace at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel.
