Kit Harington and Rose Leslie Are Getting Married Tomorrow

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie made their couple debut onscreen as Game of Thrones‘ Jon Snow and Ygritte the Wildling years ago. Now, they’re starting the next chapter of their real-life romance by saying “I do.”

Ahead of their quickly-approaching ceremony, here’s everything you need to know about their wedding.

The Date

The couple will reportedly tie the knot on Saturday, June 23.

The BBC previously reported that the “23 June date has been posted at the Huntly registration office in Aberdeenshire. The actress’s father, councillor Seb Leslie, owns a castle in his West Garioch constituency.”

The Location

It’s believed the wedding will take place at Wardhill Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, which the Leslie family owns. Recent paparazzi photos of the secluded location show a tent has been erected on castle grounds, offering further clues that this is indeed Harington and Leslie’s wedding venue.

The castle has belonged to the Leslie clan for 900 years, Daily Mail reports. The actress’ father is currently clan chief.

The Mail also adds that the couple will exchange vows in the drawing room of the castle, which can accommodate up to 80 guests, so it’s possible the reception will follow in the tents.

The Ring

Leslie gave us the first look of her engagement ring in October, when she was heading to the airport. On her left hand was a new rock: a cushion cut diamond on a gold band.

The Proposal

The couple originally had a trip planned to Iceland (a special place for them, since part of Game of Thrones was filmed there), and Leslie already had suspicions that the vacation would include a proposal, she told TV Week. But Harington surprised her by popping the question before their getaway.

“I was blissfully surprised when he dropped to a knee and asked me to marry him,” she said. “We happened to be in the English countryside, which is kind of an area that I don’t know that well. It was at night time under a beautiful blanket of stars. The man did well. It was highly romantic.”

Harington also said of the occasion: “I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff, but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine, and I blew my load early.”

The Guests

Since Leslie and Harington are highly private about their relationship, they’ve kept details about their wedding under wraps as well—including the names on the guest list. However, the actor teased that he wants his GoT costars at the big event. He even called up the producers producer and asked them to “factor in a Game of Thrones wedding,” he said on The Jonathan Ross Show. “They have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down.”

Some GoT stars have already been spotted traveling or arriving to Aberdeenshire, including Sophie Turner, Peter Dinklage, and Emilia Clarke.

The Announcement

The couple announced their engagement the old-fashioned way, with a humble listing in the paper.

The Invitations

It wouldn’t be a Game of Thrones wedding without themed stamps, right? Daily Mail reports that the couple sent out invitations with stamps featuring Harington as Jon Snow. (Royal Mail released a limited-edition series of stamps emblazoned with characters from the show this year.) The only issue with the quirky detail is that it might give away the private ceremony.
