Both clutched small bouquets of flowers.
Sir Paul got into the passenger seat, waved and blew a kiss to the dozens of fans waiting by the entrance to the driveway.
Members of the press scrambled to get the first glimpse of Nancy's dress and to take pictures of her and the former Beatle.
A black Mercedes saloon car left a few minutes before with three women inside, believed to be members of Nancy's family.
Sir Paul and Nancy broke tradition by spending the morning of the wedding together.
They were first seen when they left the house looking relaxed and in casual clothes shortly after 11.30am.
They are thought to have gone to the gym at nearby Lord's Cricket Ground.
Nancy beamed as she walked to the same chauffeur-driven red Lexus saloon car that took them to the ceremony, wearing Aviator-style sunglasses and a blue rain coat.
The music legend joined her on the back seat in a black fleece jacket.
Fans and journalists took pictures of the couple.
Vans delivering supplies such as temporary carpets, candles and an entertainment system arrived shortly after the couple left.
Around an hour later the pair returned and Sir Paul waved and smiled out of the window as the car pulled back into the drive.
A make-up artist and hair stylist are thought to have gone into the house shortly after.
Caterers and other staff ferried items into the house all afternoon.
After spending around an hour and 10 minutes inside, the beaming couple left the venue as husband and wife.
Family and friends threw confetti as they walked down the steps.

Wedding cakes were delivered at around 4.10pm.
It took two people to carry the main cake, which had chocolate as one of the ingredients. The other was a vegan cake.
Asked how long it took to create, the cakemaker from Posh Puds Patisserie said: "We worked for weeks."
Children's entertainers and catering staff also went into the house.
Sir Paul and Nancy posed for pictures and kissed outside their home when they got back from the ceremony.
Asked how he felt, he said: "Terrific, thank you. I feel married." He added: "I feel absolutely wonderful." Sir Paul shook hands with fans and gave hi-fives. Nancy did not say anything, but grinned and winked at the waiting fans and journalists.
The bride's second cousin, US broadcast journalist Barbara Walters, described the wedding as "beautiful and wonderful" as she left the register office.
When asked if anyone had cried during the ceremony she laughed and said "me".
Alison Cathcart, Westminster City Council's superintendent registrar said: "I am overjoyed to have played a part in bringing these two wonderful people together in marriage.
"Lots of couples get married at Marylebone Town Hall because of the venue's iconic status and reputation as the place to get married in central London.
"I wish them both great happiness as they further their lives together."
