Kim Sears sports stunning jewel-encrusted wedding dress

hellomagazine.com

Kim Sears was every inch the blushing bride was she stepped out in a bespoke Swarovski crystal-encrusted gown by Jenny Packham to tie the knot with Andy Murray. The 27-year-old artist, who arrived at Dunblane Cathedral in a sleek silver vintage car, prompted loud cheers as she debuted her ivory dress, which featured a full skirt, elbow-length sleeves and an open V-shaped back.

East Sussex-born Kim completed her bridal look with glittering Jimmy Choo strappy heels and a three metre bespoke silk tulle veil clipped into her brunette locks – which were styled into a half-up, half-down 'do and adorned with a Swarovski crystal Kalmia floral headdress.

Despite drops of rain, which meant the bride was ushered into the cathedral under a large white umbrella, Kim beamed excitedly as she entered the church followed by her quartet of bridesmaids who wore dusky pink dresses. Two of the bridesmaids wore bespoke ostrich feather shawls while the other two wore crepe wraps in the same hue.

Groom Andy swayed in favour of Scottish tradition with his outfit, sporting a navy, green and gold number with a black waistcoat and jacket.

Grinning broadly as he stepped out of a smart blue car to cheers from the waiting crowd, Andy showed that he had followed in the footsteps of his elder brother Jamie, who married in 2010, and chosen for himself and his three best men, Jamie, Ross Hutchins and Carlos Mier to wear tartan Highland kilts and sporrans.

Among the congregation were Grand Slam-winner Andy's proud mum Judy Murray, father Will Murray and his fiancée Sam Watson. Jamie Murray, Andy's elder brother who acted as one of the 27-year-old's three best men, attended with his wife Alejandra Gutierrez.

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Judy, who recently admitted that she had been planning her wedding outfit "for months", looked elegant in a cream and bronze dress and jacket combination which she teamed with a chic matching hat.

Representing Kim's family were her brother Scott, mother Leonore and father Nigel – whose former jobs as a tennis coach and head of the women's section of the lawn tennis association were responsible for first bringing Kim and Andy together at the US Open in 2005 when they were just 17.
