Details of Zara Phillips' Wedding to Rugby Player


The Queen's granddaughter wore an ivory wedding gown with a tiara on loan from Princess Anne.

The Royal family celebrated yet another wedding this year as the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips walked down the aisle on Saturday, July 30 afternoon in the historic Edinburgh. The ceremony took place in a small Church of Scotland called Canogate Kirk where the Queen worships when she's in town.

Phillips married the captain of England's rugby team, Mike Tindall, in an ivory silk and satin gown designed by the Queen's personal couturier, Stewart Parvin. Carrying a cream-colored hand bouquet, she finished the look with a Jimmy Choo shoes, a cathedral-length veil and a tiara owned by Princess Anne. Meanwhile, the groom wore a coattail suit with gray stripes on the trousers.

Guests, including newlywed Prince William and Kate Middleton, arrived at the venue at 1 P.M. and the bride arrived six minutes later than the scheduled entry at 3 P.M. She hired the student chorus from her private school she attended to sing at the ceremony.

The reception followed at Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen's residence close to the church. Phillips frequently visited her grandmother there. Around 300 guests were expected to come at the closed venue, including the royal family and rugby stars Jonny Wilkinson and Ben Foden and their manager Martin Johnson.

The afternoon drinks and canapes were followed by dinner and dancing. The Queen only stayed for the drink and let others carried on with the party, just like she did at William's wedding. Phillips and Tindall would postpone the honeymoon and would return to their day jobs on Monday.
