The excitement was palpable in the village of Kirkton of Rayne today as Game of Thrones stars Rose Leslie and Kit Harington tied the knot.

The happy couple looked elated as they left Rayne Church after the ceremony, waving to local residents who had lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the actors.

Guests arrived between 3 and 4pm to celebrate the wedding of the pair, who first got engaged last September.

The groom could be seen entering the church at around 3pm, with the rest of the guests following closely behind.

A cheer greeted the couple as they got into an old Land Rover Defender adorned with paper hearts and tin cans and headed to the reception at Miss Leslie’s historic family home, Wardhill Castle.

Speaking ahead of the ceremony Sebastian Leslie, father of Miss Leslie, said: “We are absolutely thrilled for Kit and Rose to be marrying today.”

The local councillor added: “It’s an absolutely lovely day for us.”

And he said: “It’s a great day for Aberdeenshire. We are using local caterers, local lighting, local flowers.”
