Grab the tissues, Game of Thrones fans, because Jon Snow and Ygritte just officially tied the knot!
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie’s wedding took place on Saturday, June 23 in Scotland and we could not be happier for the beautiful couple.
Rose, whose full name is Rose Eleanor Arbuthnot-Leslie – is a descendant of Charles II and her family owns a 12th-century castle in Aberdeenshire which is where the wedding ceremony took place. Rose’s family have been going to Rayne Church for hundreds of years and she attended the primary school in the village as a young girl. Very sweet!
One eagle-eyed fan even spotted their announcement in the local paper. It read;
“The announcement in the ‘forthcoming marriages’ sections read: “Mr K.C. Harington and Miss R.E. Leslie – 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 pair fell in love on the show and confirmed their engagement in September 2017. The wedding made headlines when it was revealed they’d be shutting down production on the HBO show to accommodate literally everyone involved with the series — no, seriously, it looks like almost every GoT cast member was invited, and we all know that GoT cast is freakin’ HUGE!
Kit spoke about how he proposed to his ‘best friend’ in a recent interview, proving things don’t always run as smoothly as planned, even for Jon Snow. Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, he said:
“I did have some plans to do it, 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 under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early.”
He then quickly added: “Sorry, that’s a really bad expression!”
The pair decided to keep their relationship secret until 2016 when they attended the Olivier Awards together- it’s safe to say that GoT fans completely lost their sh*t at the news! Kit has always sang Leslie’s praises and made women everywhere swoon with his lovely words and kind gestures.
Kit appeared on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’ just after moving in with Rose, where he told him:
“I’ve moved in with my best friend, Rose, so I’m very happy.
“It’s going well, so she’s got all sorts of ideas for the house.
“I said to her, ‘cause she’s moved into my house, ‘Look, darling, it’s important that this is our space. That it feels like our space. That you haven’t just moved into mine. Move anything you want around, change anything, chuck anything out’.”
It feels as though we’ve been waiting forever for this magical wedding to take place, so we were SO excited to see the photos emerge of the couple on Saturday. We can now go to sleep happy knowing that the Wildling and the Crow are together forever!
Leslie looked absolutely stunning in a lace, long-sleeved gown and breathtaking, delicate veil and Harington looked handsome in a classic tux.
Snow’s on-screen half-siblings — well, cousins, (but he doesn’t know that yet) — turned up to the event looking gorgeous and ready to party. Sophie Turner rocked a vibrant red jacket dress and high boots whilst Maisie Williams opted for the more androgynous look in a black jumpsuit and bright heels.
The Mother of Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke rocked a millennial pink long-line blazer and a mid-length summer dress.
Even Peter Dinklage, the cast’s only American actor, made it to Scotland for the big day. He looked super smart in a fitted navy suit and powder blue shirt.
From left-right we’ve got John Bradley aka Samwell Tarly; Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry; and Crompton, who plays Eddison Tollett — acting Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and Jon Snow’s best friend. All three GoT actors showed up looking undeniably dapper.
We already knew that Liam Cunningham would look ridiclously cool in a suit- and now we have our proof! He even opted for a bold green tie for the happy occasion!
The wedding was a beautiful, momentous occasion- from its country church service, to its reception in a castle. Leslie’s wedding gown was nothing short of stunning, and both the bride and groom looked ecstatic to be tying the knot. We wish them a long, happy future together!
