Andy Murray and Kim Sears wedding: Kilt-clad tennis star arrives at Dunblane Cathedral

hellomagazine.com

In January he said he'd wait until the day itself to choose whether he would wear a kilt for his wedding and it seems Andy Murray swayed in favour of Scottish tradition on his special day. Sporting a navy, green and gold number with a black waistcoat and jacket, the excited groom arrived at Dunblane Cathedral to tie the knot with Kim Sears.

Grinning broadly as he stepped out of a smart blue car to cheers from the waiting crowd, Andy showed he had followed in the footsteps of his elder brother Jamie, who married Alejandra Gutierrez in the siblings' home city in 2010, and chosen for himself and best man Jamie to wear kilts and sporrans.

Andy's two other best men, Ross Hutchins and Carlos Mier, sported navy blue suits.

The sportsman jokingly told the audience, who were shouting out their preferences, "to relax" before adding: "I think I'm going to have both options and see what I feel like in the morning when I wake up."
