Sir Paul McCartney's NY wedding bash

SIR Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell celebrated their recent marriage with a party in New York on Friday night.

The Beatles legend and the American heiress - who tied the knot in front of 30 friends and family members in an intimate ceremony at London's Marylebone Register Office on October 9 - celebrated their nuptials at the city's Bowery Hotel alongside a number of close pals.

Among those in attendance were Yoko Ono - the wife of the singer's late bandmate John Lennon - and her son Sean Ono Lennon, 'Living On A Prayer' hitmaker Jon Bon Jovi, fashion designer Ralph Lauren, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and singer-songwriter James Taylor.

The guests were treated to a candlelit vegetarian feast, champagne and dancing to Motown music before the party drew to a close at around 1am.

Leaving the event, actress Aida Turturro told US Weekly magazine: "Wow. Wow. Wow. That was amazing! The best part of the party was the dancing. But it was all amazing!"

Greeted by a large crowd of well-wishers as they left the bash, Paul and Nancy - a native of New York - were said to look "happily overwhelmed" at the number of people who had turned out to wish them well.

An onlooker said: "Nancy looked so overjoyed and sort of happily overwhelmed by the outpouring of joy for them. They held hands and took photos as made their way to the car."

The pair recently returned from their four-day honeymoon at Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger's luxury beachfront mansion, Stargroves, on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
