Here comes the bride!

It’s the episode every fan of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series has been waiting for: This Saturday, after countless lingering stares in low candlelight and nigh unbearable sexual tension, Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) finally, finally ties the knot with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) on the Starz show.

Their journey to this moment hasn’t been easy. Since Claire was transported back in time to 1743 in the series’ premiere, she’s been held captive against her will, beaten and nearly raped.

Her multiple attempts to make it back to the standing stones at Craig na Dun may have failed as well, but there is one light in Claire’s life: the redheaded Scottish hunk known as Jamie (or, as we can now refer to him, her betrothed).

While Claire has struggled to become accepted among Clan Mackenzie, particularly by Jamie’s suspicious uncle Dougal (Graham McTavish), Jamie has always been kind to her, bringing her food and sleeping outside her door to protect her.

But thanks to the tumultuous politics between the English and the Scots, as evidenced in last Saturday’s episode, Claire and Jamie’s thus-far platonic relationship is about to get a whole lot hotter as they are forced to marry to keep Claire out of the hands of the English.

Check out three exclusive images from their wedding day below. As for the steamy wedding night … fans will have to wait until this Saturday to get a glimpse of that.
