Game of Thrones is not a show known for charming weddings and happily-ever-afters. That might be why these photos from Kit Harington and Rose Leslie’s nuptials in Aberdeen, Scotland are a bit dizzying while also being divinely charming. With political news being a hellscape of evil, racism, and childish whining, we could all do with something lovely. And behold! The Game of Thrones cast turned out, dressed up, smiling and beguiling to give us something decadently off-brand.
Stark sisters Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams turned up in matching black, red, and white outfits that were less than traditional wedding attire. But both look so distinctly chic that I’m not mad at it.
And here’s a close-up of Williams’s glasses, which I want. Now.
The Night’s Watch turned out, along with Gendry of House Baratheon.
Liam Cunningham (A.K.A. Davos Seaworth) arrived looking all business.
Looking sharp in a navy suit, Peter Dinklage came to represent House Lannister, but he had little interest in the paparazzi.
Malin Akerman was there! She’s not on Game of Thrones, but I like her gold boots. Er—um—MAYBE SHE’S IN NEXT SEASON! Speculate wildly whom Akerman might play in comments.
Dearly departed King of the North Rob Stark didn’t fare so well at the last wedding he attended, which might explain the guarded look Richard Madden paired with this killer kilt.

Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke appeared dressed like she’s starring in a jaunty British rom-com about a charming librarian who falls for a discount Tom Hiddleston. Would watch.
She’ll always be our Ygritte. Leslie arrives a vision in white and flowers.
Look at that smile.
Look at the happy!
LISTEN TO IT!

AUGH MY HEART! JON SNOW HAS NEVER KNOWN A SMILE SO BRIGHT!
Then they drove off in a banged up old jeep.
Because…something old, something new, something borrowed, battered and blue?
It’s so damn adorable, I want this whole wedding’s movie rights to be optioned right now. Forget Emilia Clarke’s rom-com. Give me Harington and Leslie in a romantic comedy where they end up exactly like this. Or start off there, and then they have a wacky road trip honeymoon. JUST GIVE US SOME MORE OF THIS JOY PLEASE, WE NEED IT.
