Harington, who plays Jon Snow, kept it low key by rocking up to Rayne Church in Kirkton of Rayne in a taxi cab, the Daily Mail reports, before Rose appeared with her father looking chuffed to bits.

The actors met in 2012 while filming the long-running saga in Iceland, where they were playing Jon Snow and Ygritte.


Their engagement was announced in last year, and a wedding date of 23 June was posted at the Huntly registration office in Scotland.

Leslie - whose full name is Rose Eleanor Arbuthnot-Leslie - is a descendant of Charles II and her family owns the 12th-century Wardhill Castle in Aberdeenshire, where the ceremony took place.

According to Sky News, her dad said he was 'thrilled' for his daughter as she prepared to marry her former co-star.

Speaking outside the castle, Sebastian Leslie said: "We are absolutely thrilled for Kit and Rose to be marrying today."

Apparently the church where they wed is the one that Rose's family has frequented for hundreds of years, and she went to the tiny village primary school as a young kid.

The Game of Thrones co-stars officially broke the news of their engagement with a classy announcement in The Times.

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."

Rose left Game Of Thrones two years after they initially met, but she clearly made a lasting impression on Kit. Speaking to L'Uomo Vogue about his favourite memory of working on the show, he explained that it was working Iceland with Rose.

He said: "Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love.

"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."

Someone chopping onions round here or what?

Despite starting their relationship several years ago, they kept it low key and only 'went public' in 2016 at the Olivier Awards. Now look where they are.

Congrats, you guys.
