Zara Phillips' wedding wasn't as raucous as people would imagine.

Although the granddaughter of Britain's Queen Elizabeth and her husband Mike Tindall are both renowned for being laid back and enjoying a party, close pal Kirsty Gallacher says their nuptials in Edinburgh, Scotland in July 2011 were great fun but more sedate than people would expect.

Speaking as she launched the Cadbury Dairy Milk Postcards campaign for the London Olympics, Kirsty exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''We had a great time at Zara and Mike's wedding, it was wonderful. It wasn't too raucous, we'd had a wedding the day before in Bristol and I was doing a reading and then we had to get up to Edinburgh so we were a bit rushed.''

Kirsty was saddened she and husband Paul Sampson - who is a close friend of Mike's from their days playing rugby together for Bath - missed the pre-wedding cocktail party on board the decommissioned Royal Yacht Britannia but was thrilled to make it in time to see ''stunning'' Zara walk down the aisle.

She added: ''We sadly missed going on the yacht on the Friday night which was a shame but we got there on the Saturday and it was a great day and Zara looked absolutely stunning. It was so much fun.''

Kirsty is supporting Cadbury Dairy Milk's Postcards campaign, part of its London 2012 Olympic Games sponsorship. For more information, visit
