'Game of Thrones' stars Kit Harington & Rose Leslie tie the knot

24 June 2018

It's an absolutely lovely day for us.

Cast members Emilia Clarke - Daenerys Targaryen - and Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, arrived in Aberdeen on Friday.

Adorned in a handsome white lace dress complete with exquisite veil and stunning ivory bouquet, the beaming bride couldn't help but grin as she walked to the church to marry her other half. "We are using local caterers, local lighting, local flowers", he said.

Rose Leslie and Sebastian Leslie at her wedding to Kit Harington at Kirkton of Rayne church in Scotland. With nearly the entire cast of Game of Thrones coming together to see "Jon Snow and Ygritte" exchange their vows at the bride's ancestral castle there, it was nothing less than a feast for the eyes for the fans of the fantasy series across the world.

Clutching floral bouquets for the stars, they said: "We would like to see him if possible".

A date of June 23 was previously posted at Aberdeenshire's Huntly registration office. Although their relationship ended tragically in Game of Thrones (like most of the show's relationships), last September, the IRL couple announced their engagement in the Times of London.

Harrington and Leslie met on the set of the Emmy-winning HBO drama while playing enemies who eventually fell in love.

Kit, also 31, said: "The country is handsome ... the Northern Lights are magical ... it was there that I fell in love".

Game of Thrones fans who were upset by the death of Jon Snow's wildling girlfriend, Ygritte, can take solace in knowing that their romance was much more than just a ploy for the cameras.
