Zara Phillips got married this weekend to her sweetheart and rugby player Mike Tindall. The wedding was held at Edinburgh’s Canongate Kirk on Saturday 30th July 2011 and comes after her cousin Prince William tied the knot just months earlier in April 2011. Both the Bride’s and Groom’s families turned out and everything looked to go very smoothly. With just 300 friends and family members, the couple kept the ceremony relaxed and intimate. Zara Phillips will remain a “Phillips” because of her equestrian successes and is one of the first of the Queen’s relations to keep her maiden name.
Then after the guests and the newlyweds had partied the night away till after 2AM, they emerged from the Palace of Holyroodhouse, a little worse for wear but beaming with happiness.
