Andy Murray keeps things simple with wedding announcements

Andy Murray doesn't strike you as the kind of guy who would be overly comfortable with having his private life laid out for all to see in the newspapers and magazine for a sustained amount of time. Therefore, unsurprisingly, the British no.1 has sought to keep things simple in his upcoming wedding with Kim Sears.

The 27-year-old proposed to his long-term partner before Christmas with an engagement ring believed to be worth around £200,000 and rumours were rife as to when the pair would tie the knot. 


It has finally been decided that they will have their ceremony in just a few months, April 11th to be precise, and the location will be at none other than Murray's very own luxury hotel, situated in his hometown of Dunblane.

Of course that is not to say that this hotel isn't special. The multi-million pound hotel in Scotland, called Cromlix House, has already been voted as 'Hotel of the Year'. An overnight stay will cost well into the hundreds, though I doubt Murray will be paying anything for his wedding-night stay.  


While one would probably expect that the great and the good from the world of sport will be invited to Dunblane for the nuptials, Murray had better make sure that a problem which hit the headlines last year has been resolved, or he risks the wrath of his new wife.

2014, aside from his proposal to Sears, was a bad year for the Briton. As well as struggling performances on-court, Murray was left red-faced as his hotel was blacklisted by the Foods Standards Agency for poor hygiene matters - you best get scrubbing Andy.

Despite the traumas of last year, 2015 already look set to be a be a great year for Murray after a storming start at the Australian Open. Whether it's his engagement to Sears which has done the trick or not, the former world no.3 returned to the form that saw him win Wimbledon in 2013 and he came almighty close to picking up his first Melbourne title, until he fell apart at the hands of Novak Djokovic. 


Murray will be hoping for more of the same once he and Sears are married. Their wedding comes shortly before the double-header of Grand Slams, firstly at the French Open before moving onto Wimbledon. 

In fact, the man who beat him in the final last week, Djokovic, was due to do the same last year when he was engaged to his long-term partner Jelena Ristic. However, the pair postponed things until after Wimbledon so that Djokovic was in full-concentration, it worked too. I don't think Sears will be as accommodating and understanding if that happens to her though...
