Thousands lined the streets of Dunblane on Saturday as the tennis ace wed his longtime love.
It’s a love match for Andy Murray (sorry) as the Wimbledon champ said “I do” on Saturday, marrying his girlfriend Kim Sears in his hometown of Dunblane, Scotland. The whole town of Dunblane seemed to come out to celebrate the tennis star’s wedding, with thousands lining the streets to catch a glimpse of the happy couple.
Newlyweds: Andy Murray and Kim Sears leave Dunblane Cathedral as husband and wife.
Murray wore a traditional Clan Murray tartan kilt for the ceremony, which was held at Dunblane Cathedral in the northern Scottish town. The bride wore an embroidered vintage style white gown made by British designer Jenny Packham, with her long style hair in a half updo.
The groom was greeted by cheers from the waiting crowd as he entered the cathedral on Saturday afternoon with his father William. Kim later entered the cathedral via the backdoor, sheltered by umbrellas to protect her dress and hair from the afternoon's wind and rain.

Murray’s mother and former coach Judy was also greeted with cheers from the crowd and wore a long white coat over her coffee-coloured dress. Also in attendance was former British tennis player Tim Henman along with his wife Lucy.
Murray's brother Jamie served as best man for the big day, along with the tennis star's close friend Ross Hutchins, while Kim was accompained by four bridesmaids who all wore pink dresses.

The now married couple emerged from the cathedral at around 5.45pm when the weather had taken a turn for the better, as bells rang out through the town and confetti rained on the newlyweds.
After the ceremony the couple and guests celebrated at Cromlix House, a hotel three miles outside Dunblane owned by Murray. Murray purchased the hotel in February of 2013, reportedly paying £1.9million for the property.
Kim and Andy, who are both 27, became engaged last November. The couple have been dating since 2005 after meeting during the US Open tournament through Sears’ father Nigel, who is a tennis coach.
