Rose Leslie was every inch the blushing bride as she arrived at the tiny church where her family have worshipped for generations for her Scottish wedding to Game of Thrones co-star Kit Harington.
The couple, who play hero Jon Snow and ‘wildling’ Ygitte, travelled two miles from Wardhill Castle to Rayne Church, in Kirton of Rayne, for the service conducted by Benedictine monk father Chad Boutlon.
Rose, 31, was a vision as she headed into the chapel on the arm of her father clad in a billowing white gown with a lace bodice and intricately beaded veil that she secured upon her tousled auburn hair.
Groom Kit arrived at the Church of Scotland chapel first, in a people carried accompanied by his best man and ushers. Wearing a traditional morning suit he beamed with pride as he walked into the ornate churchyard, waving at local well-wishes who had discovered the secret wedding venue.
Brandishing his trade-mark long, unruly, black hair Kit , buttoned the black jacket of his traditional morning suit and pulled the sleaves of his chuff-linked white shirt and he strode purposely into the churchyard. He chose not to wear a top hat.
Bride Rose arrived almost an hour later with her fiercely proud father, Sebastian Leslie, in his top of the range Land Rover. Clearing enjoying the day Rose greeted the crowd with a cheerful ‘Hi’ as she stepped out of the car.
Her father, Sebastian, wore a kilt cut from the Leslie’s tartan, knee length green socks and red garters, sporran and dagger. He also wore a black jacket, black waist coat, white shirt and red tie.
Wearing a beautiful white dress, veil and a flower posy in her hair, Rose took her father’s hand to walk under a birch-wood arbour into the ancient church.
Leslie also carried a small bouquet of flowers.
The couple’s nuptials took place in front of a star-studded crowd, with the couple’s Game Of Thrones co-stars turning out to wish the couple well and watch them tie the knot.
One of the first to arrive was actor Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, and was seen blowing a kiss to the crowd as he walked into the churchyard.
The church congregation erupted in a roar of approval after the happy couple exchanged their vows and the priest announced to Kit: ‘You may kiss the bride’.
Also among the guests were Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, Kit Harington’s on-screen sister, as well as John Bradley-West, who plays Samwell Tarly; Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth; and Gemma Whelan, who plays Yara Greyjoy.
Sophie Turner wore a stylish red mini dress, with a split down the side and over-the-knee black boots, meanwhile Maisie wore a fashionable black jump-suit and ruby red stiletto heels.
The Leslie Clan has worshipped at Rayne Church for hundreds of years and its walls are adorned with plaques to their many ancestors. Their graves fill the small church yard which is surrounded by a high stone wall. Rose attended the tiny Rayne Primary primary school down the road as a young girl.
Just hours before, the father of the bride Sebastian Leslie told of his delight about the upcoming ceremony. The Game Of Thrones co-stars, both 31, are marrying at Rose’s family estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, where celebrity guests were spotted descending on the church in style.
Speaking at the entrance to his sprawling estate, Mr Leslie told MailOnline: ‘We are absolutely thrilled for Kit and Rose to be marrying today. It’s a delight.’ He added the ceremony was using facilities from the local area, Aberdeenshire, as well as the catering.
Mr Leslie admitted he was not in charge of the wedding which was being coordinated by his wife Candy. He said: ‘As you undoubtedly know the father is not in charge of the marriage [ceremony].’
Earlier in the day, members of the close-knit Leslie clan were sweeping up outside sprawling Wardhill Castle, clearing the entrance to the show-business wedding of the year.
Sebastian Leslie, Rose’s father, was putting the final touches to his wedding speech as he prepared to give his daughter away at the ceremony held at the remote castle, in Aberdeenshire, which has been in the family for 900 years.
And the couple’s wedding planner popped in to make sure the lavish decorations were in place at the huge marquee that has been set up inside the spacious walled garden which forms part of the castle estate.
