When news broke that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie were getting married, there's no doubt that many, many Game of Thrones fans fantasized about sneaking into the venue to watch the festivities go down. Well, one very bold fan took things a step further than fantasizing about it and actually did it.

Twitter user @trashymegan apparently spent her Saturday afternoon hiding in the bushes at Kirkton of Rayne Church in Scotland watching Harington and Leslie say "I do" at their high-profile wedding. "Not even being funny or anything but this is the cutest thing i’ve ever seen," she wrote alongside a recording of the happy couple parading through a shower of rice. At first glance, the clip makes it seem like she was an invited guest watching her friends get married. But then she followed up with, "love watching kit harrington n rose leslies wedding from a bush." Another fan and Twitter user named @beth_harvie also seems to have taken in the nuptials hidden from sight. She posted two videos, one with the caption "crying @ rose leslie and kit harringtons wedding. love spying from the bushes."

Understandably, the internet has mixed feelings about this situation. While many people are over the moon (and jealous) about the behind-the-scenes footage—as of press time, @trashymegan's tweet has been shared 6,400 times—others agree that it's a major invasion of Harington and Leslie's privacy.

"Should I be creeped out?" asked one commenter. "I woulda sat in the bush with you," shared another.

Based on the details that have been released, the wedding really was as adorable as it looks in the Twitter spy videos. After the reception at the church, where Leslie wore a lace Elie Saab gown and flower crown, the couple and their friends, including costars Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams, continued the celebration at her father's castle in Scotland. It does not appear that Megan or Beth made it into the bushes at the second location.
