‘Game Of Thrones’ Stars Kit Harington & Rose Leslie Get Married
The wedding ceremony was held at Rayne Church in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in front of friends and family. Co-stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke were also in attendance.
Leslie donned an ivory long-sleeved lace dress with a long veil. Harington wore a matching vest and his trademark Jon Snow haircut.
She was given away by her father, Sebastian Leslie, who owns Wardhill Castle where the reception was held.
“We are absolutely thrilled for Kit and Rose to be marrying today,” he told the press.
A Land Rover Defender adorned with a “just married” sign and tin cans escorted the newlyweds to the Scottish castle that sleeps up to 16 people.
The two first confirmed their engagement in September in the Forthcoming Marriages section of The Times of London:
“The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.”
The couple first went public in 2016 at Olivier Awards in London. Leslie and Harington have been dating for several years, even though her character was killed off in just the fourth season.
In October, Harington described how he intended to propose to Leslie, but ended up asking her earlier than he expected.
“I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff, but we were in the country and we were sort of under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and … I popped my question a bit early,” he said on Britain’s The Jonathan Ross Show.
Game of Thrones will air its final season next year.
