After announcing their engagement last September, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are set to marry very soon!

Our favorite on-screen turned off-screen couple will say their ‘I do’s’ on June 23 in Scotland according to BBC News. 

“A 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 outlet reports.

So it looks like the wedding will take place next month in northeast Scotland in Aberdeenshire, in a castle owned by Leslie’s father, a British politician. 

Harington and Leslie were co-stars on HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones. Their characters, Jon Snow and the wildling, Ygritte, had a brief romance which was but short as Ygritte didn’t survive past season four (as is expected on a show with such a high body count). 

Their brief on-screen romance was enough for the couple to fall in love. The two have been dating for six years. They announced their engagement last September in The Times: “The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, the middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.”

While Harington is still going strong on GoT, Leslie has moved on to her next TV on the Good Fight. In March she spoke to E! News about filming schedules and wedding planning, saying “it’s hard,” but that despite the distance, they agree on “most things.”

Here’s to hoping that their wedding is nothing like a wedding on Game of Thrones!
