Zara Phillips’ tame wedding

Zara Phillips‘ wedding wasn’t as raucous as people would imagine.

Although the Queen’s granddaughter and her rugby star husband Mike Tindall are both renowned for being laid back and enjoying a party, close pal Kirsty Gallacher says their nuptials in Edinburgh, Scotland in July last year were great fun, but more sedate than people would expect.

“We had a great time at Zara and Mike’s wedding, it was wonderful. It wasn’t too raucous – we’d had a wedding the day before in Bristol and I was doing a reading and then we had to get up to Edinburgh, so we were a bit rushed,” Kirsty told BANG Showbiz.

Kirsty was saddened she and husband Paul Sampson – who is a close friend of Mike’s from their days playing rugby together for Bath – missed the pre-wedding cocktail party on board the decommissioned Royal Yacht Britannia, but was thrilled to make it in time to see “stunning” Zara walk down the aisle.

“It was a great day and Zara looked absolutely stunning. It was so much fun.”
