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 the legal drama “The Good Fight” on CBS.

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