IN PICTURES: Game of Thrones stars Rose Leslie + Kit Harington’s wedding was just dreamy

Their characters first laid eyes on one another in a snow-bound wasteland, but on Saturday 23rd June 2018, actors Rose Leslie and Kit Harington looked just a little different as they got wed in Aberdeenshire.

The pair met while playing Ygritte and Jon Snow in the hit TV series Game of Thrones before announcing their engagement in 2017, and decided to marry in Rose’s home village of Kirkton in Aberdeenshire, having their ceremony in quaint 18th century Rayne Church.

Kit arrived to cheering crowds before heading inside, while Rose pulled up in a black Land Rover and walked into the church on the arm of her dad, Sebastian, and waved to excited locals as they admired her stunning vintage lace Elie Saab gown – gorgeous and regal, pure bridal perfection!

After a 50 minute ceremony, the newlyweds emerged to a chorus of applause and a shower of confetti. That confetti shot is just amazing!

The pair then drove off to plush Wardhill Castle (owned by Rose’s family) for their reception in a Land Rover Defender, complete with cans and a Just Married sign.

Wardhill Castle has eight bedrooms, including a honeymoon suite, and is already a popular wedding venue. The couple added a huge sprerry tent provided by Papakata to the grounds, decorated with twinkling fairy lights.

We’re smitten with this pair. Is this the most exciting celebrity wedding in Scotland yet?
