Game of Thrones Stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie Wed in Scotland

Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie tied the knot on Saturday in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The couple, both 31, met on the set of the HBO series in 2012. On screen, they played the lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. Their engagement had been announced in September.

The romantic ceremony was held at Kirkton of Rayne church. The reception afterwards was held in nearby Wardhill Castle, a 12th century castle that has been in Leslie's family, as descendants of King Charles II, for the past 900 years. The castle now serves as a private hotel and popular wedding venue. The reception afterwards was held
