Andy Murray and Kim Sears keep wedding low-key with intimate guest list

When Andy Murray and long-term girlfriend Kim Sears say "I do" on Saturday 11 April in the former Wimbledon champion's hometown of Dunblane, they will do so before a gathering of the couple's closest family and friends. Despite rubbing shoulders with celebrities and playing on court with some of tennis' best-known sportsmen, British tennis star Tim Henman is the only guest of celebrity status that will be sharing the happy couple's special day.

"There won't be any celebrities as such. I don't have any celebrity friends so it wasn't something that was planned," Andy said.

Going on to explain how they came up with the guest list for their big day, Andy explained: "[It'll be] Everyone who we're close to, people we've spent a lot of time with in the past but also people we see ourselves spending time with in the future. That's how we came up with the names.

With just days left to their wedding day, Andy confirms that all the planning is taken care of: "Pretty much everything is done now and under control. I'm sure a few things will come up next week but it's pretty much sorted."

In a recent US interview with Rolling Stone, Andy revealed that he had entrusted his future wife with most of the planning for their big day – with the exception of the food and the cake.


Andy Murray will marry Kim Sears on Saturday

"I think in a lot of cases it's just better to let the woman have it how she would like," said the 27-year-old. "In terms of flowers and colour schemes and those sorts of things, I couldn't really care less about that, to be honest.

"The one thing that I really wanted to do was be involved with the food," he added. "Because I like my food, I like good food. I went along and did the food tasting and I also did the cake tasting as well. So that would be the thing that I would say I have been most involved in.

Andy and Kim, who have been together almost ten years, will marry in Dunblane Cathedral. The reception will then be held in Cromlix House – the five-star hotel that Andy bought in 2013 for £1.8million and later refurbished.
