Game of Thrones: Kit Harington and Rose Leslie’s Scottish wedding

The newly-weds travelled to Wardhill Castle in an old Land Rover Discovery

Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have married at a ceremony in Aberdeenshire.

The couple – who played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte – met on the fantasy show in 2012.
Guests lined the path outside Rayne Church, near Inverurie, showering the newly-weds with flower petal confetti.
The couple then got into an old Land Rover decorated with paper hearts and tin cans as they drove to the reception at nearby Wardhill Castle.
The guests included fellow Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.

Earlier the bride and groom, Harrington dressed in a morning suit and the bride in a flowing ivory dress and veil, had greeted dozens of fans and other wellwishers.
The reception was held in the grounds of Wardhill Castle, which is owned by the actress’s father, Seb Leslie.

Leslie left the cast two years after they met, while Harington has appeared in every series of the popular TV drama, becoming one of the show’s biggest stars.
Harington told L’Uomo Vogue it was “easy” to fall in love with his co-star.
He said his best memory of the show was three weeks in Iceland when they filmed the second season.

“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he recalled.
“If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
