The tactile newlyweds looked very much in love as they put on an affectionate display at the Festival of British Eventing, just one week after tying the knot.Speaking to HELLO! magazine, Zara said that the chance to share their happiness with their nearest and dearest made the big day all the more special.


"To have all your friends there in one place, for both of us, was the best part of the wedding," she revealed.

Clearly basking in the glow of her big day, the sporty blonde – introducing her new Musto range – spoke to the magazine, issue 1187, about her marriage to Mike and their delayed honeymoon plans.

The magazine also carries pictures of the couple sharing kisses and cuddles at the three-day equestrian festival.

Zara is seen with her arms wrapped around her new husband, showering him with kisses.


Mike, who is England rugby team captain, was there to cheer on his wife as she competed in the festival.
