Sorry, Meghan and Harry, but the real royal wedding is happening this weekend. The King in the North, Jon Snow (a.k.a. Kit Harington), is reportedly set to marry the wilding Ygritte (a.k.a. Rose Leslie) in Scotland on Saturday. The Game of Thrones stars registered their wedding date, June 23, at a government office in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, according to a BBC News report.
It turns out Leslie’s family owns an actual castle in the area (no big deal), and that will be the venue for the big day. The Daily Mail reports that Wardhill Castle, which has been in her family for a whopping 900 years, is being set up with tents for the couple’s wedding. The castle has recently been transformed into a luxury hotel and wedding venue, which rents out eight bedrooms for the bridal party, including a Honeymoon Suite.
Harington and Leslie will reportedly say their vows in the castle’s drawing room, which has a wedding license and can accommodate up to 80 people, and the wedding breakfast and after-dinner speeches will be held in a tent on the property. According to the property’s website, the wedding tent, or marquee, is usually set up within the Walled Garden, “hidden in the woods to add an element of surprise after the ceremony.”
Their Game of Thrones castmates are conveniently making their way to their neck of the woods, and photographers spotted them arriving at the Aberdeen airport on Friday. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, was spotted while FaceTiming with fiancé Joe Jonas.
Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, was also seen arriving at the airport.
The Aberdeen Press and Journal also reported that Game of Thrones producer D.B. Weiss also arrived, as did Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen. And the Times of London reported that Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is also expected to attend.
Other non-GoT stars were also seen at the airport, including Malin Akerman and fiancé Jack Donnelly:
And British designer Nicky Haslam:
Usually, weddings on Game of Thrones don’t end well. But here’s betting there won’t be any massive plot twists this time around.
