Kit Harington & Rose Leslie got married close to her family’s Scottish castle

Congratulations! Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are getting married!

These are some of the cutest, sweetest and most joyful candid wedding photos I’ve ever seen! They make me so happy! Kit Harington and Rose Leslie got married this weekend in Scotland. Rose and Kit met and fell in love while working on Game of Thrones – apparently, it happened quite quickly and they are madly in love, and have been madly in love for quite some time. Kit let it slip last year that they were engaged, and they already live together in New York, which is where HER job is.

Kit and Rose got married at Rayne Church, which is near Rose’s ancestral home, Wardhill Castle. Yes, she grew up in a castle. Kit’s very aristocratic/posh too – this isn’t just a “two cute actors got married” story, this is a “two posh families are now intertwined by marriage” story. God knows, it might even make it into Debrett’s Peerage. That being said, Rose and Kit do seem like they’re truly in love. It’s not a posh marriage of convenience. Look at Rose!! She looks like she’s about to burst with happiness.

As for the bride’s ensemble… you guys, I love it. I love her gown. Too much lace makes a bride look like a doily, but this lace is really elegantly done. I like the dress is off-white too, everything looks sort of antique/vintage. I love her veil and her floral headpiece too. She’s just so cute!

Lots of Game of Thrones people came out Rose and Kit’s wedding too. Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner were there, because they are Kit’s Stark sisters. Emilia Clarke was there, as was Peter Dinklage. You can see photos of the GoT fam here.

Congratulations! Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are getting married!

    They’re cute photos

  3. FHMom says:

    I love this so much! That dress is better than anything I’ve ever seen on a royal. Congratulations to them.

  4. Harla says:

    Congratulations to the happy couple!!! My son got married yesterday so I’m still on the wedding high too!!

    Rose’s dress is stunning!! I love the lace (which I usually don’t) and the fact that it doesn’t cover every inch of the dress. The flowers in her hair bring such a nice bit of whimsy and fun. But I have to say that her radiant smile is the most beautiful part of this whole ensemble!!

    • Jan90067 (aka Imqrious2) says:

      Mazel tov, Harla! I hope they’re always as a happy as they are now 😊🥂🎉🎊

    • Dee Kay says:

      Love that smile!! That’s not an “actress” smile where she’s trying to look pretty. That’s the smile of a woman feeling pure joy. Beautiful to behold.

  5. Snappyfish says:

    They look so happy. This looks like a great wedding…my invitation must have been lost in the post. Best wishes to the truly adorable couple

  6. Ankhel says:

    Finally a GOT wedding that didn’t end with murder (that we know of.) Both the bride and groom look very pretty. Congratulations!

  8. Becks1 says:

    Ah, to have an ancestral home, lol.

    I love these pictures. They look so ridiculously happy.

  9. Sarah says:

    Did you see the video of her getting out the car and saying hi to everyone? It’s SO sweet ❤️

  10. tracking says:

    I adore her dress, veil, and floral headpiece. I would have preferred her hair up and a touch more makeup to bring a little contrast with all the ivory, but she really does look lovely.

  11. Squirrelgirl says:

    Sophie Turner’s outfit was sooooo bad!!! Thigh high boots and a long red jacket/dress??

    • Danielle says:

      I know, right?!?

    • Giddy says:

      It was so inappropriate. Vying for attention at your friend’s wedding is not nice. Looking like a hooker at Christmas is awful.

    • minx says:

      Was she out all night and came wearing the same outfit?

    • MaryRose says:

      There are rumors there was a love triangle on the show with Rose, Kit, and another woman after Rose left the show. Supposedly Rose and Kit were on and off. I’m guessing the other woman was Sophie Turner. Why else would she dress like a hooker at the wedding? Is she saying look what you rejected? CDAN said guests made sure the other woman was never left alone with either the bride or groom or she would have spoken her mind. I think she spoke loud and clear.

  12. Hodor says:


    It’s a wedding, girl. Cover your English biscuits.

  13. Jenns says:

    Richard Madden was there. Jon and Robb reunion!

    And I love these pictures. They’re so happy.

  14. Naptime says:

    Love the dress and the overall look, just don’t understand the unnecessary belt

  15. Mia4s says:

    I really like her dress. And I like that they were laidback about the press and public taking photos. No mass security or hiding. Just very chill and it all worked out. Well done.

    Sophie Turner looks ridiculous for a Scottish countryside wedding. And very uncomfortable. A bit bizarre honestly.

  16. HelloSunshine says:

    They look so happy! They could both be wearing potato sacks and I’d love these pics because they’re so happy!

  17. Riley says:

    Adorable!! Loved that so much of the GoT cast was there. They look so happy!

    Maisie Williams is so stinkin cute too! I forget how adorable she is sometimes because she’s almost a boy in the show. She cleans up well.

  18. Indiana Joanna says:

    Finally, a wedding dress I absolutely love. She looks so gorgeous. But I most envy her absolute joy. Oh, to have that feeling!

  19. ocjulia says:

    I have never seen a bride look so happy! Their photographer is amazing – she (or he) captured the atmosphere beautifully. She looks gorgeous – he looks gorgeous. It’s just so perfect!

  20. Elisa says:

    Wow, they look really happy! Love everything about her dress.
    Sophie Turner’s outfit is awful and Emilia Clarke looks kind of rough – what happened?

    • Danielle says:

      Emilia Clark’s outfit was fine, but now that you mention it, she did look a bit rough. Lots of flying maybe? Not enough sleep?

  21. Belluga says:

    Her dress is a dream and wow, these photos are stinking cute!

  22. lightpurple says:

    That dress and veil are so lovely. They look so full of joy. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness for them. Jon Snow says marriage words.

  23. Lucy says:

    No attendants were harmed during the wedding, lol. But seriously, these pictures made me so happy!! Everyone looked lovely, Rose was just GLOWING. Kit looked fantastic too. May they have a long, happy marriage. Congrats!!
    PS: Gendry, though. HOT DAMN.

  24. Marnie says:

    They look really happy.

  25. Talie says:

    His drinking episodes before the wedding were a little distressing, but I’m glad it didn’t mess up their relationship.

  26. smcollins says:

    Their chemistry on GOT was incredible and I was actually really happy when I found out they were together for real. They’re a very sexy-cute couple, congrats to them!

  27. ChillyWilly says:

    Aw! So cute…their love scenes were super hot on GoT!

  28. Jayna says:

    It’s a beautiful gown and very flattering on her. I like that it isn’t a bright white, but that may just be the lighting. I can’t tell.

  29. grabbyhands says:

    They both looked so damn happy and that made me happy. :)

    Was Sophie Turner going clubbing immediately after the wedding or something? Why would you choose that outfit?

  30. RedOnTheHead says:

    @Kaiser….her family currently resides at Warthill Castle, not Wardhill. Wardhill castle belongs to her family but is only used as a wedding venue. She was born and raised at Lickleyhead Castle. Th church she married in is close to Wardhill and the reception was held there.

    • Diplomanatee says:

      Fun fact: Lickleyhead Castle was purchased in the XIXth Century by a Mexican businessman, who is Rose’s great-great grandfather. How it was purchased from/returned to the Leslie family with a marriage between both families totally escapes me.

  31. Ladiabla says:

    Sophie’s outfit is just godawful. Maisie looks cute, but the jumpsuit’s too informal, like she’s going to an evening hang out with her friends. Emilia’s wearing a proper dress, but she does look a little tired. The bag’s too big and her shoes are on the sensible side.

    That said, Rose looks radiant here. I love her dress and veil, and that she wore her red hair down. Both her and Kit are beaming with happiness, which is how it should be. Congratulations to the lovely couple 🥂❤️

    • Svea says:

      Everyone has said what I’m thinking about Sophie. And for me, Maisie was also inappropriately dressed. Black for a June country wedding? Those two came off as the evil stepsisters.

    • Svea says:

      Everyone has said what I’m thinling about Sophie. But for me Maisie was also inappropriately dressed. Black for a June country wedding. Those two came off as the evil stepsisters.

  32. Lyla says:

    She looked awesome. That elie Saab dress, the flower crown, the veil, the happiness…it all worked. Sophie Turner’s look…yikes. Idk what she was thinking. How is that an appropriate look for a wedding?

  33. Enn says:

    She looks beautiful and they’re adorable together!

    Sophie and Maisie both looked completely out of place.

    • Kiki says:

      I don’t mind Maisie’s outfit. I thought she looked cute and appropriate for the wedding but what would possess Sophie to wear that dress to the wedding. Why?

  34. SJhere says:

    The pic Bella linked is just so lovely. Both look so happy, Best Wishes to all happy couples. :)
    Born into a family that has several castles…Lucky! And very cool.

  35. Liz version 700 says:

    They are a beautiful couple and wow her dress is sublime.

  36. Bettyrose says:

    If this was a posh castle-y wedding, why wasn’t it a fascinator event?

    • Skwinkee says:

      Maybe because it was in Scotland? I went to a wedding held in a Scottish Manor and none of the scots wore hats or fascinators. The only ones to do so were the out of towners! (Which was me but I LOVE a hat at a wedding and wasn’t going to waste my chance to buy a nice hat)

      • Bettyrose says:

        I was wondering if Scotland was the difference. Still saw some great fashions. Maise is my new fashion icon.

    • Alyse says:

      Depends whether it was in a church or not? If it was all in the castle then a hat/fascinator wouldn’t have been expected.

      • bettyrose says:

        Okay, that makes sense. (Presumably even outside of church, Sophie’s pantless club look was still not quite right, but in general I loved the fashions of this event).

      • LizB says:

        The wedding itself was held in a church. Reception at the Clan Leslie castle.

        People just think British wedding = fascinators/hats, which isn’t true.

  37. Sparkly says:

    I’m going to sound like the odd jerk out now, but I really don’t like the dress. Or the hair. But at least she looks happy. I wish them a lifetime of happiness and love.

    • minx says:

      It’s funny because I normally don’t like lace, and I think off white wedding gowns can look dingy if done wrong. And I prefer a bride’s hair to be done up or sleek. But the dress fits the location and mood of the wedding, as well as the bride’s physique and coloring. And her hair is just natural enough to be pretty but not messy. Her whole look is very romantic and goes beautifully with what the men are wearing.

    • Gigi LaMoore says:

      It’s o.k. I am not blown away like others seem to be.

  38. artistsnow says:

    You know what? I don’t believe you all who say this dress looks so much better than Meghans’.

    If Meghan wore this dress:
    “Why is there a belt?”
    “The lace looks like doilies? lol”
    “The sleeves are wrinkled, it’s too big”
    “I can see the seams”
    “The dress is too big up top”

    ad infinauseum…..

    • Gigi LaMoore says:

      I don’t know why Meghan even needs to be brought up and I agree with you. Also, each bride wears what they feel comfortable wearing. With what I have seen of Meghan’s style so far, she wouldn’t feel comfortable in Rose’s dress.

  39. hey-ya says:

    …she looked incredibly horsey imo which is a fairly standard toff look…but good luck to them both…

    • Gretchen says:

      Lol, yes. Just what I was thinking. I hate to pee on the wuv, twue wuv parade, but the fact that she is a vocal Tory does not put her in my good books, and it cracks me up how much verbiage Kit wasted trying to convince us of how not at all posh and common folk he is and then goes and marries castle dwelling folk.

  40. Bettyrose says:

    Any word on how many prep hours Kit spent at the hair salon?

  41. Lyla says:

    Just saw a pic of Richard Madden…swoon.

  42. Yup says:

    I think that is the prettiest wedding dress I have ever seen. Wow!

  43. Cberry says:

    I like what Holliday Grainger was wearing. She was there with Harry Treadaway. I saw them in a pic walking together behind one of the Night’s Watch actors. She looked way better than what any of the GOT ladies were wearing from what I saw.

  44. themummy says:

    Sophie Turner. Oh my god. She looked like a literal hooker on a street corner. What was she thinking??

  45. Racer1 says:

    Two actors had a better wedding than the royals. Look at her face it shows real emotion. Her dress fits, it looks lovely and classic and guests from both sides of the family. Very nice.

  46. liriel says:

    What a lovely wedding. She looks natural, happy! It seems so real. I like that they didn’t care about the paparazzi, it seemed so low key.

  47. becoo says:

    These are the best dang wedding photos I’ve ever seen. Kudos to the photographer for truly capturing the joy in every moment!

  48. Bela says:

    They look so in love!!

  49. Myrtle says:

    My only sartorial criticism is Kit’s cream colored vest – doesn’t work for me. Perhaps dove gray silk would have been better? Something to go with the pants? Anything but cream.

  50. hogtowngooner says:

    They look SO happy, which is a nice palate cleanser between all the Trump posts.

  51. Elisse says:

    Amazing dress. Beautiful couple. I love her on The Good Fight. If you haven’t watched, please do. Amazing show.

  52. Mina says:

    This post just makes me happy.
