So, the rumour is that Wimbledon champ, Andy Murray is either already engaged or about to pop the question to long term girlfriend (and she with the lovely hair), Kim Sears. Having been together for nine years, the bookmakers are currently enjoying a flurry of bets.
Whether or not this happens (after all, Andy doesn't seem to be one to be be pressurised into anything, a quality we here at thebestof Newmarket like about him), if he were to get down on knee, there would plenty for the happy couple to think about. Not just 'til death do us part' and 'who gets control of the remote', but where they would get married, the style of wedding that works for them, the food, the guest list and much, much more.
Planning a wedding is both wonderful and incredibly stressful. We would hope that Andy has saved a few pennies so won't have to worry too much about budget, but for us non-Wimbledon and Olympic champions, price is a huge concern. Which is why we want to make sure we get the best possible quality, service and value for our money.
