Guests lined the path from the cathedral doors and bells rang as Andy Murray and Kim Sears left the church and were showered with confetti.

The bride was accompanied by four bridesmaids in long pink gowns.

The couple left the wedding venue for the reception at Cromlix in a grey car decked with ribbons and were cheered by crowds lining the streets. The Perthshire town pulled out all the stops for what has been described as "Scotland's royal wedding", with hundreds turning out for the event.

Among those who gathered outside was Brenda Watson, who travelled from Ochiltree in Ayrshire with a friend to join in the celebrations.

She said: ''We're so excited about seeing them and the atmosphere is great, it's been well worth coming.''

Sheila Penman travelled from Rosyth in Fife with her husband John and six-year-old grandson Alfie. She has tickets for Wimbledon for the first time this year, a treat for her 60th birthday.

She said: "It's lovely to be here on such a happy occasion for Andy. Hopefully I'll get to see him in the final this year."
