Meet the new Mr and Mrs Andy Murray.
Tennis star Andy Murray wed his long-term partner Kim Sears in a lavish ceremony in his hometown of Dunblane, Scotland this afternoon.
The world number three exchanged vows with his girlfriend of nine years at Dunblane Cathedral, in front of an intimate crowd of family and friends.
In spite of his A-list athlete status, the affair was relatively low-key in terms of numbers, preferring to keep it filled with those close to them, shunning rows of famous faces to fill the pews.
As expected, fashion forward Kim stunned in a couture white gown with embellished sleeve, wearing her hair in a classic half up/half down style.
Her new husband opted for a classic kilt for the big day.
The couple first met when they were both 17 in 2005, at a US Open party, where Kim's father, tennis coach Nigel Sears.
They split briefly for six months between 2009 to 2010.
His mother Judy described Kim as "the best thing that ever happened" to her son.
Murray proposed in November of last year with a ring worth an estimated €200,000 and their big day is set to have cost more than €100,000 to produce.
After exchanging vows, the wedding party will descend on the five star Cromlix House, which Murray purchased in 2012.
The property is now a 15-room, exclusive luxury hotel, which boasts a restaurant run by French chef Albert Roux.
