John and Yoko marriage took place on March 20, 1969 at The Rock Hotel in Gibraltar. Knowing that it would be a huge press event, the couple decided to use the publicity to promote world peace.
Some months ago (May 2012) a rare photo of the Beatles walking in the opposite direction from the original album cover on Abbey Road was put up for auction.
The photo on the sleeve of Abbey Road album was taken by photographer Iain McMillan on August 8, 1969. He had 10 minutes to do the shoot and he took six photographs of the Beatles walking backwards and forwards across the zebra crossing.
