Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, known for their on-screen pairing, will marry on June 23.

The couple met on the fantasy show in 2012, where they played lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte. Their engagement was announced in September last year.

A June 23 date was posted at the Huntly registration office in Aberdeenshire. The actress’s father, councillor Seb Leslie, owns a castle in his West Garioch constituency, reports the BBC.

They will exchange vows in the north east of Scotland.

Leslie left the cast two years after they met, while Harington became one of the show’s biggest stars — appearing in every series of the popular TV drama.

Harington earlier told L’Uomo Vogue that it was easy to fall in love with Leslie.

He said his best ever memory of the show were the three weeks in Iceland when they filmed the second season in 2012.

“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he said.
