Zara Phillips, 13th in line to the throne, has recently married English rugby captain Mike Tindall in a royal ceremony at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh on the 30th of July 2011. Wearing a beautiful dress designed by Stuart Parvin, who’s known to be one of Her Majestie’s favourite couturiers and Jimmy Choo shoes. Zara married Mike after dating for eight years. Mike chose the plain platinum wedding band which, it is fair to say beautifully sets off Zara’s stunning solitaire diamond engagement ring, which has shoulder set pave diamonds on a platinum setting.
Guests naturally included the newlywed royals The Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge who flew back to the UK for the event. After a vodka fountain and most guests leaving the next day looking a little worse for wear, including Tindall himself who was still wearing his wedding outfit, both 30 year-old Zara and 32 year-old Mike are back to work, as they are both preparing for their sporting events. Zara, who is a former European Eventing Champion is in the middle of preparations for the Gatcombe International Horse Trials and Tindall for the pre-Rugby World Cup friendlies.
