Their onscreen characters didn’t get a happily ever after, but former Game of Thrones co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie managed one in real life.

The off-screen couple were married Saturday with a church service and a reception at Leslie’s ancestral castle in Scotland.

There were some Game of Thrones cast members spotted at the Leslie family’s 900-year-old Wardhill Castle in northeast Scotland —including Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Emilia Clarke.

Harington and Leslie, both 31, met in 2012 on the set of the HBO fantasy series, on which they played Jon Snow and Ygritte the Wilding respectively. Leslie’s character died in her lover’s arms two years later, but the actress’s career has done just fine since:  she currently stars in the CBS drama, The Good Fight.
