Zara Tindall’s half-sister’s wedding dress was a world away from that of the royals

While some members of the royal family have shown they have similar tastes when it comes to bridal outfits, including Kate and Pippa Middleton, Zara Tindalls half sister Stephanie Phillips24, appeared in a very unique dress when she married William Hosier.

On Saturday, the newlyweds posed hand in hand for photos in the sunshine after their ceremony at St Mary The Virgin Church in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Despite the warm weather, Stephanie rocked a very simple floor-length dress with long sleeves, a deep V-neckline with a small section of delicate lace, and an A-line skirt.

Her blonde hair was pulled back in an elegant updo, with curls framing her face and a veil draped over her shoulders, while her white and blue bouquet added a pop of color — perhaps to show her “something blue” about hers to symbolize a wedding anniversary.

In comparison, Zara wore a more summery ensemble than she tied the knot with Mike Tindall almost 11 years ago. The couple tied the knot on July 30, 2011 at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh. The Queen’s granddaughter wore an ivory silk dress by Stewart Parvin with thick tulle straps, a straight neckline and a full skirt, which she paired with her mother Princess Anne’s tiara.

After Anne and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips, divorced in 1992, he married Sandy Pflueger in 1997 and they welcomed daughter Stephanie that same year.

Stephanie’s wedding guest list included several members of the royal family, including half-siblings Peter Phillips, who looked dapper in a black suit, and Zara Tindall, who looked radiant in one Blue mini dress from Zimmerman.

Peter’s girlfriend Lindsay and his ex-wife Autumn Phillips were also on the guest list, as were his two children savannah11 and Islandten who acted as bridesmaids alongside the two daughters of Zara and her husband Mike Tindall, billioneight and lenafour.

Stephanie’s young bridal party matched her color scheme perfectly, with Savannah looking dapper in a light blue cap sleeve dress and hair tied up, while the others wore white lace dresses with blue sashes and flowers in her curly hair.
