World No 4 Great Britain tennis player and Kim Sears' marriage ceremony which was to be held in a Scotland hotel will now take place at a cathedral

Tennis ace Andy Murray was supposed to say 'I do' to his painter fiancée Kim Sears during a private function at the Cromlix Hotel's chapel in Dunblane, Scotland a few weeks from now. However, the couple seems to have had a change of heart.

According to a report in Daily Record, the wedding ceremony will now be held at Dunblane Cathedral, which is over 1000 years old and happens to be in the Scot's hometown.

The news comes close on the heels of reports that Murray's local fans had urged him to move the wedding to the Dunblane Cathedral. It is expected that hundreds of residents of Dunblane will line up the streets as the town's most famous son gets hitched.

It was earlier believed that the couple wanted a private wedding with only close friends and family in attendance. They had also ruled out the possibility of a multi-million media coverage deal, as has become the norm for celebrity weddings.

A report in the England's The Mirror, Murray is also considering the possibility of not wearing any underwear if he wears a traditional kilt at his wedding.

He told the newspaper: "I think I'm going to have both options and see what I feel like in the morning when I wake up."

The 27-year-old 2013 Wimbledon champion's brother Jamie is one of the three best men along with friends — fellow tennis player Ross Hutchins, and former training partner Carlos Mier.

While the honeymoon plans haven't been finalised, the couple seems to be planning to dash off somewhere during Murray's off-season break.
