On-screen Game of Thrones Lovers Have Off-screen Dream Wedding (complete with castle)
Beloved Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie tied the proverbial knot this past Saturday in the medieval splendor of a twelfth century Scottish castle. The announcement of the couple's engagement came in September of last year after originally meeting on the set of the beloved HBO series during its second season.
This beautiful couple recited their vows in an equally beautiful chapel located in the Scottish villiage of Kirkton of Rayne. The reception then took place on the Wardhill Castle estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland owned by the Leslie family since the 1,100s. This breathtaking venue was none other than Rose's childhood home and for years now has been used as an elegant wedding destination. Notable attendees to the wedding included other Game of Thrones cast members such as Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.
Leslie wowed with an Elie Saab bridal dress with a measly pricetage of $20,000. The 31 year old newly-weds made their getaway in a Land Rover Defender 90 after friends and family showered them with flowers and affection. Congrats you two! Even if Jon Snow and Ygritte don't get to live happily ever after at least Kit and Rose do.
What are your thoughts? Was this wedding as epic as Game or Thrones? At the least we can all be glad the spectacle wasn't a repeat of the infamous Red Wedding.
