While nothing was publicly known about the gown before Leslie stepped out, she and Harington displayed some old fashioned tendencies beforehand that hinted that the dress could be more traditional. Case in point: The newlyweds sweetly announced their pending marriage back in September with an official newspaper announcement in the Times.
“MR. K.C. HARINGTON AND MISS R.E. LESLIE. The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughters of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.”
Before that happened though, they fell in love on their HBO series set while playing Ygritte and Jon Snow.
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love. If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love," Harington said in an interview with L'Uomo Vogue.
All in all, it was really their co-star Emilia Clarke who spoke about Leslie and Harington's wedding day the best.
"Their wedding is going to be siiiiick," she told Vanity Fair.
"Siiiiick" indeed—wedding dress included.
