Zara Philips weds with platinum wedding bands

Zara Philips, the daughter of Princess Anne, has exchanged platinum wedding bands with her long-term boyfriend Mike Tindall.

The couple married in a ceremony at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh on July 30th with platinum wedding bands bought by the groom, reports the Daily Mail.

Her wedding band matched the platinum engagement ring given to her by the England rugby star in December last year.

A royal source revealed that after the ceremony, the wedding turned into a "family knees-up", quite set apart from the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton held earlier this year.

They told the news provider: "It was just a family knees-up. Your archetypal wedding, really. Except with a lot of royals and rugby players. And a lot of drinking. In fact make that a hell of a lot of drinking."

Another royal source revealed that Tindall's speech was fairly emotional, focusing on the groom's devotion to his new bride.

"For a tough nut he is actually quite soppy when it comes to her," they are quoted as saying.
