Radiant: Zara Phillips is led into Canongate Kirk by her father Mark Phillips as she prepares to marry Mike Tindall

Zara Phillips looked stunning in a beautiful ivory gown as she arrived at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh to marry Mike Tindall this afternoon.

The 30-year-old royal, who arrived five minutes late for her nuptials, looked radiant as she smiled and waved for photographers outside the venue.

The bride wore a stunning ivory dress by Edinburgh-trained designer Stewart Parvin, which featured a short train, and teamed it with a beautiful silk veil as she made her way in to marry her groom.

Nervous? The bride looked slightly apprehensive as she arrived at the venue

The dress had a chevron pleated bodice, ending in inverted pleats on a dropped waist, creating a bell-shaped silhouette, and also included a concealed structured corset as well as silk tulle straps that fell into a V-shape at the back.

The crowd on Edinburgh's Royal Mile had been waiting hours for the bride to arrive, and spontaneously cheered as her car arrived.

Zara's father, Captain Mark Phillips stepped out first and walked round the limousine to meet his daughter who was facing the church.

Beautiful: Zara had a silk veil over her face, and a pretty diamond tiara on her head

Zara briefly waved back to the crowd who were still shouting and cheering at her, before the bride and her father were greeted by the Reverend Neil Gardner. and made their way inside.

The 32-year-old sportsman looked smart in a black jacket, grey pinstriped trousers, a grey waistcoat, white shirt and grey tie, teamed with an ivory buttonhole flower.

Showing no signs of nerves, Tindall smiled and waved as he posed for photographers before making his way into the venue.
