Traditionally, the weddings on Game of Thrones have been bloody affairs filled with stabbings, poisonings, and betrayal. Thankfully that wasn’t the case at the wedding of Kit Harington and Rose Leslie in Aberdeenshire, Scotland this morning. The couple met filming the series, where their characters Ygritte and Jon Snow fell in love beyond the wall. The couple have been together ever since.
The wedding is drawing many comparisons to the recent royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Both weddings feature good-looking Brits, famous actors, and nobility (Rose Leslie is legit a member of a Scottish noble family). The wedding reception was even held in the 12th century Wardhill Castle, which belongs to Leslie’s family.
This wedding is the perfect Venn diagram of celebrity, pomp, and nerdery that’s more than enough to cause a Twitter meltdown. People all over the world are losing their damn minds over this wedding.
People we’re fawning over the fashions and the men in kilts.
I'm obsessed with the fact that @SophieT and @Maisie_Williams not only matched outfits for Kit Harington & Rose Leslie's wedding but also decided to dress like they were going anywhere but a wedding pic.twitter.com/DcoWCcpyx1

Kit and Rose's wedding ALMOST makes up for the pain of the red wedding

There’s something warm and incredibly fuzzy about Rose and Kit getting married today, I wish them all the joy, but I’m still like “Jon, there’s white walkers coming, is this really the time?”

I can't believe Kit Harrington has the time to get married when the Night King has broken the wall

Rose Leslie:‘ You know nothing Jon Snow.’ Kit Harrington: ‘I do.’ #GameOfThronesWedding
