Kit Harington and Rose Leslie met on the set of Game of Thrones. Since everyone will associate them with the show for the rest of their careers, it makes sense that the couple would make the popular HBO show at least a small part of their upcoming wedding. And, it looks like Harington (Jon Snow) and Leslie (Ygritte) have found the perfect way to honor GOT – postmarking their wedding invitations with a Jon Snow stamp from the Royal Mail.
According to the fansite Winter Is Coming, Harington and Leslie have invited 200 guests to join them at a Scottish castle on their wedding day. A source close to the couple says that they organized the wedding quickly because they wanted to avoid the possibility of an information leak.

The former onscreen and now real-life couple are asking guests not to reveal any wedding details because they don’t want fans to swamp the event. We may not know where and when the event will take place, but sources have revealed that Mumford and Sons will be the reception band.
In an interview earlier this year, Leslie wouldn’t give away anything about the big day, and instead, she joked about fitting it into her schedule.
“I’m trying to fit in my wedding. I haven’t tackled it,” she threw her hands in the air. “There’s just too much to do.”
Harington and Leslie started dating in 2012, but kept their relationship very quiet until they confirmed their engagement in September of last year.
The 31-year-old admitted that he popped the question earlier than he anticipated. He said that he was going to set up a string of lights in some trees and do “all the romantic stuff.” But, they were in the country under a beautiful night sky, and they had a log fire burning, while drinking red wine, so he ended up asking early.
He also admitted that if you are attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest on the show, it is very easy to fall in love. Harington and Leslie played opposite each other during seasons two through four of GOT.
Earlier this year, reports surfaced that the couple bought a $2 million 15th century home in East Anglia that included eight acres, a moat, and a banquet hall.
Kit Harington will return in new episodes of Game of Thrones in spring 2019 on HBO.
