Game Of Thrones Kit Harington Married Rose
Game of Thrones stars Rose Leslie and Kit Harington have married at a church in Aberdeenshire.
Guests lined the path outside Rayne church in Kirkton of Rayne, and the newlyweds were cheered and showered with flower petal confetti as they left.
The couple got into an old Land Rover Defender decorated with paper hearts and tin cans tied to the back, which rattled as the couple drove off to the reception at Leslie’s family’s 12th-century castle.
Guests at the wedding included Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke, as well as Jack Donnelly and his partner, fellow actor Malin Akerman.
Leslie wore a flowing ivory gown and veil for the ceremony, while Harington was dressed in a morning suit. The couple, both aged 31, met in 2012 while playing on-screen lovers – Ygritte and Jon Snow – in the TV drama.
Speaking outside the castle on Saturday, Leslie’s father, Sebastian, said: “We are absolutely thrilled for Kit and Rose to be marrying today. It’s an absolutely lovely day for us.
“It’s a great day for Aberdeenshire. We are using local caterers, local lighting, local flowers.”
Two years after they met, Leslie left Game of Thrones, while Harington has become one of the show’s most popular stars, having appeared in every episode.
Fans of the show gathered outside the castle hoping to catch a glimpse of the couple. Two students from China, currently studying in Glasgow, were among the fans who gathered at the venue.Yunyao Li and Qiong dan Xu, both 23, said they are fans of Harington’s alter-ego in Game Of Thrones. Clutching floral bouquets for the stars, they said: “We would like to see him if possible.”
A wedding date of 23 June had previously been posted at Aberdeenshire’s Huntly register office. The stars announced their engagement in the Times newspaper last year.
