Former Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie married on Saturday in a church service, with a celebration at the bride's ancestral castle in Scotland.

The couple and guests arrived for the afternoon service at Rayne Church, close to the 900-year-old Wardhill Castle in Aberdeenshire, northeast Scotland, which is owned by Leslie's family. Harington, wearing a morning suit, and Leslie, in a flowing ivory gown and veil, smiled at members of the public who had gathered outside the church.

Guests included the couple's Game of Thrones co-stars Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.

Later, the newlyweds were showered with rose petal confetti as they left the church and drove off in a Land Rover festooned with Just Married signs to a reception on the castle grounds.

Harington and Leslie, who are both 31, met in 2012 on the set of the HBO fantasy series, where they played a couple as the characters Jon Snow and Ygritte. Leslie left the cast in 2014 and currently stars in US legal drama The Good Fight.

The couple announced their engagement with a notice in The Times in September.

The bride's father, Sebastian Leslie, said on Saturday he was "absolutely thrilled" about the wedding.

"It's an absolutely lovely day for us," he said.
