Sir Paul McCartney and his new leading lady, American heiress Nancy Shevell, may only have spent a four-day honeymoon on the secluded island of Mustique, but that didn’t dampen the mood as the newlyweds continued their celebrations by hosting a party in New York on Friday night.
The Beatles legend tied the knot with Nancy – or shall we say Lady McCartney – in an intimate ceremony at London’s Marylebone Register office earlier this month definitely made sure that their US based friends didn’t miss out on the festivities by putting on a party at the Bowery Hotel in NYC. Celebrity guests included Yoko Ono – the wife of Sir Paul’s late bandmate John Lennon – and their son Sean Ono Lennon, fellow musician Jon Bon Jovi, fashion designer Ralph Lauren, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and singer-songwriter James Taylor.
With Paul McCartney being vegetarian for as long as we can remember, the guests were treated to a candlelit vegetarian feast, champagne and Motown music before the part drew to a close around 1am.
Onlookers said the couple looked so overjoyed and happily overwhelmed by the outpouring joy for them as they held hands and made their way to the car at the end of the night.
