Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie got married in Aberdeenshire on June 23. The couple, who played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte, met on the fantasy show in 2012 and tied the knot in a grand celebration at the bride’s ancestral home in north-east Scotland.
Guests lined the path outside Rayne Church, close to Wardhill Castle, which is owned by Leslie’s family, and showered the newly-weds with flower petal confetti. The guests included fellow Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.
The couple, both 31, announced their engagement with a notice in the Times of London newspaper last September, and the wedding date was submitted to the local registry office last month. And they had the most beautiful wedding on Saturday attended by their co-stars, Hollywood pals, friends and family members. The reception was held in the grounds of Wardhill Castle, which is owned by the actress’s father, Seb Leslie.
Here are some of the best photos of Kit Harington and Rose Leslie’s wedding, from guests arriving for the wedding to the couple’s driving away to the reception on an old Land Rover decorated with paper hearts and tin cans. Take a look:
