More on Mike and Zara's romantic wedding
He didn't get time to jet off to an exotic location for his honeymoon.
But Mike Tindall did board a long haul flight finally this week.
It wasn't a romantic post-wedding break for him and Zara though, it was strictly business.
The England captain joined his rugby teammates as they left for New Zealand, where the World Cup will take place.
Mike looked happy and confident as he set out in a team t-shirt.
No doubt England's victory over Ireland on Saturday had given him a sense of purpose.
