Andy Murray and Kim Sears make last-minute visit to wedding venue

With less than 24 hours to go until they become a married couple, Andy Murray and Kim Sears stepped out to oversee the final preparations for their nuptials. Former Wimbledon champion Andy looked relaxed and dressed down in jeans, trainers and a light blue shirt, as he arrived at Dunblane Cathedral.

Kim meanwhile looked stylish and casual in tight black jeans, a loose white T-shirt, and a Richards Radcliffe Oxshott leather jacket. The artist brightened up her outfit with sparkly red shoes, and accessorised with a pale blue scarf.


Excited Andy and Kim leave the wedding venue

Arriving shortly after the sportsman himself were proud mother-of-the-groom Judy Murray, Andy's brother Jamie Murray, his sister-in-law Alejandra Gutierrez, father Will Murray and his fiancée Sam Watson.

No doubt the pair were keen to see the way the interior of the 11th century venue had been cleaned and decorated. Photos released earlier on Friday revealed that Andy and Kim had taken inspiration from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's iconic wedding when it came to choosing the church's decor.

Much like when Prince William tied the knot with Kate Middleton, the cathedral's aisle has been lined with lush green trees. The foliage was carefully positioned at the end of every other pew, similar to Westminster Abbey, where William and Kate wed almost exactly four years ago on 29 April 2011.

An air of excitement has descended upon the Perthshire city of Dunblane, where Andy grew up, and notices declaring that parking is suspended between the hours of 12:00 and 18:00 in the local area have been put up.

The 'golden postbox' spray painted in honour of Andy's 2012 Olympic Gold medal has been freshly coloured with metallic paint and bunting has been strung up around the streets.

Local butchers David Bennett & Son are whipping up a bespoke menu, and are offering special sausages and burgers. The groom's "Wimbledon Bangers" and the bride's "Big Day Sausages" as well as "Sweetheart Burgers" are on sale.

The Riverside pub has brewed a special beer called TogetherNess for the big day, while the Dunblane Hotel promises to serve strawberries and cream and Prosecco in Andy and Kim's honour.

Charity shop Sue Ryder is showing a great deal of affection for the happy couple, and has erected a wedding dress and tuxedo in its front window, with pictures of the pretty artist and the Wimbledon champion stuck on the mannequins.
