While we’re still reminiscing how dashing Prince William looked in his Irish Guards uniform when he got married to Kate in April, details around the other British royal wedding have started to emerge.

England national rugby star Mike Tindall – whose bride is none other than Zara Phillips, daughter of Princess Anne – will be kicking off married life in style in a classic morning suit.

London bespoke tailors Cad & the Dandy on famous Savile Row have been commissioned to dress the rugby player for his wedding to Zara at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh on Saturday 30 July. The wedding party will be wearing a classic morning suit made from a black barathea cloth made in Huddersfield, the trousers will have a slightly lighter stripe than what is traditional making them more up to date. As for the waistcoats, they will either be buff coloured or dove grey according and shoes will be classic Oxfords according to Cad & the Dandy.

While we expect elegance just like William and Kate’s wedding, we’re guessing it will be a slightly smaller affair. However there will be no lack of royalty. Among the wedding guests are the bride’s grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip and newlyweds Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Kate. This is what happens when you’re part of the Firm, your wedding will never be an intimate event.

Still no hints have been given about what Zara will be wearing, but the money is currently on designer Paul Costelloe, whose creation she wore to Kate and William’s wedding.
