The Mountain is a married man. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, best known for his role as “The Mountain” or Ser Gregor Clegane on HBO’s Game of Thrones, married Kelsey Henson this weekend.

The groom took to Instagram to share the first look at his nuptials from this weekend. “It is with great pleasure that I now get to call Kelsey Morgan Henson my wife!” Björnsson captioned a photo of himself holding his wife in the rugged Icelandic terrain. “I get to hold this beautiful woman through thick and thin for the rest of our lives!”

He added, “I’m so excited for all of the future adventures we will tackle side by side.” Appropriately, the groom used two emojis to illustrate the height disparity between the couple by including chick and gorilla emojis.

Henson echoed her husband’s thoughts by sharing another scenic photo from their wedding day. “Looking forward to pulling this big guy around for the rest of my life,” she captioned the snapshot. “@thorbjornsson I love you now and forever and promise to stand by your side through all that life throws at us. I love you baby!”

The bride chose a simple and short white dress for the day, while the Mountain wore a suit. The size difference between the couple was clearly on display for all to see—the groom is 6’9’’ while Henson is 5’2’’ in height.

It’s been quite the year for Björnsson, who was dubbed the World’s Strongest Man in May. The pair reportedly first met in Alberta, Canada, when Henson asked Björnsson for a photo during a different Strongman competition.
