On Saturday in County Kerry, Ireland, Jack Gleeson, who plays King Joffrey Baratheon on the popular HBO series, married his longtime lover.
Wed to his longtime sweetheart Róisn O’Mahony, actor Jack Gleeson is now a married man.
Former Game of Thrones actor, now 30, married his actress-comedian girlfriend in a quiet ceremony at The Sacred Heart Church in The Glen, Ballinskelligs, County Kerry, Ireland, on Monday, as confirmed by Parish priest Father Patsy Lynch’s tweets.

There was a “very simple, spiritual, and dignified marriage ceremony for Film Celebrity Jason [Jack] Gleeson and Roisin: The Glen Church,” Father Lynch posted images of the wedding, which also showed the happy couple.
O’ Mahony is holding a bunch of flowers and is dressed in a long, pastel-colored patterned dress in a photo of the three of them smiling inside the church.

PEOPLE’s request for comment from Gleeson’s representatives went unanswered.
A “pre-wedding ceremony,” as described by Father Lynch in an interview with the Irish Independent, took place on Saturday.
Jack Gleeson told the media that while the “actual ceremony” will be held in England, the couple’s family had spent many vacations in Ballinskelligs, The Glen. “A wedding ceremony that included prayer and was respectful and beautiful was held for us. Jack Gleeson told me by text that they had a beautiful and meaningful ceremony and then went out to eat.”
Father Lynch said, “I think it was the basic simplicity that simply struck everyone, and everyone was pleased and comfortable,” in reference to the “beautiful, calm mood right from the very beginning.”
Jack Gleeson went on to say that the fact that “everyone down here knows Jack” proved how much the locals were integrated into the community. “He’s the kind of person who, the moment we met, made me feel like we’d known each other forever. Nothing about it seems fake.”
