Andy Murray and Kim Sears arrive at Dunblane Cathedral for wedding

It's nearly time.

Bride-to-be Kim Sears has arrived Dunblane Cathedral to wed long-term partner, tennis star Andy Murray.

The world number three arrived twenty minutes before his future wife.

His mother Judy Murray was one of the earlier arrivals to today's celebrations.

In spite of his high profile, the US Open winning athlete and his other half will be keeping celebrations low-key.

While fellow tennis players are expected to be in attendance, the affair will not be an A-list event.

The hotel was the venue for his brother Jamie's wedding in 2010.

Earlier today, Murray tweeted a message featuring dozens of emoticons, capturing his emotions for the day.

“There won’t be any celebrities as such,” Murray said earlier this week. “I don’t have any celebrity friends so it wasn’t something that was planned. [The list will 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. 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.”
