It was a sunny gorgeous day in Edinburgh’s Canongate Kirk for the nuptials of Zara Phillips and rugby star Mike Tindall!
Kate wore the same muted pale gold Jane Troughton dress coat she wore to the wedding of Laura Parker Bowles and Harry Lopes back in 2006. But accessorized with a gorgeous new hat. Her dress was hidden from view, perhaps in an attempt to lend some of the fashion lime light to Zara? You’ll know when we do!
Accompanying Kate, (aka, the Countess of Strathearn, when in Scotland) was Wills, the Queen, Prince Philip and Princess Anne.
Zara, wore an elegant ivory silk dress by Edinburgh-trained designer Stewart Parvin. The dress featured a chevron pleated bodice, ending in inverted pleats on a dropped waist creating a bell-shaped silhouette. It also included a concealed structured corset and silk tulle straps that fell into a V-shape at the back, a short train, and a voluptuous silk veil.
She topped it off with the Meander Tiara, lent to her by mother Princess Anne.
We gotta say, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were looking pretty chic today too. Both were wearing Angela Kelly outfits. For full details, see the Daily Mail.
The 45-minute ceremony was a private affair — there were no cameras inside the church, no order of service was released and only about 1500 onlookers showed up outside the Royal Mile of Edinburgh for a glimpse of the wedding party.
After the ceremony, the Royals headed to Hoylrood Palace for the evening reception. We’re still waiting for pictures and deets on what everyone’s wearing to that tonight — stay tuned readers!
