The dream wedding that every Game Of Throne fan was eagerly waiting for finally took place on Saturday (June 23) as Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who played on-screen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte in the fantasy TV saga said their 'I do's' in northeastern Scotland. The pair tied the knot at Rayne Church in Aberdeenshire. Rose looked breathtaking as she wore a full-length white wedding dress with a lace bodice. Meanwhile, Kit looked dashing in his suit. The two complemented each other's look as they beamed with happiness on their special day.
The pair announced the date of their wedding in a statement given to BBC that read, "A 23 June date has been posted at the Huntly registration office in Aberdeenshire. The actress's father, councilor Seb Leslie, owns a castle in his West Garioch constituency." The couple had announced their engagement last fall in a very sweet and traditional way. Unlike other celebrities who usually rely on social media to make big announcements Kit and Rose stuck to the good old fashioned way and made the announcement in a newspaper.
"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 daughters of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire," the announcement read. Even though the couple has refrained from putting their private lives in front of the camera, on countless occasions they have mentioned how much they care and love each other.
In a 2016 interview with Vogue Italia, Kit described falling in love with his future wife and GoT co-star. "Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he said. "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." The actor even opened up about his proposal on The Jonathan Ross Show in October 2017.
"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 said, laughing. "Sorry, that’s a really bad expression!" While it may seem like Kit had a lot of planning to do for the proposal, it all seemed to work out at the end as they had a stunning wedding. Here's a look inside the wedding celebration of these two lovebirds.
