Phillips, 13th in line to the throne, tied the knot in an ivory silk faille and silk duchess satin gown by designer Stewart Parvin, couturier to the Queen. The drop-waist pleated bodice, which concealed a corset, flowed into a full skirt complete with train. Delicate fabric-covered buttons ran down the back of the gown, from the neckline to the hem. And Phillips, a functional bride, had hidden pockets in her skirt, too. Her veil was a silk tulle cathedral-length bouffant style with a short blusher.
In addition to her dress, Phillips sported Jimmy Choo shoes, carried a bouquet of cream-colored flowers and wore the glimmering Greek Key tiara, on loan from her mother, Princess Anne.

Not to be outdone, the groom looked dapper in his black barathea morning suit by London bespoke tailors, Cad & the Dandy. Tindall – plus other male members of the wedding party – wore gray striped pants and black waistcoats, cut from Huddersfield cloth. Shiny Oxford shoes completed the looks.
It was a stylish affair all around: the Duchess of Cambridge re-wore a coatdress she sported to a wedding in 2006, while her husband and his brother, Prince Harry, both looked sharp in classic morning suits.
