Wait, what?

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ wedding was reportedly set for this summer in France, with the nuptials quickly becoming one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year.

There was reported to be a star-studded guest list in place, more Game of Thrones cameos than the Red Wedding and even Sophie Turner’s onscreen sister and real-life BFF Maisie Williams as a bridesmaid.

Fans were surprised therefore when it was announced yesterday that Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas had eloped to Las Vegas this week.

Yes, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are officially married - and apparently, it all happened very last minute.

In fact, it was so last minute that Sophie didn’t even call her mother until the evening of the wedding to let her know.

It seems there are no hard feelings however, with Sophie’s mum reportedly telling the Daily Mail that she was ‘absolutely delighted and so is [her] husband Andrew’.

It was Maisie Williams however whose absence made the most noise, with only a few people present.

The rest of the Jonas brothers were there of course, as was Khalid, Diplo and musicians Dan and Shay.

But in place of Maisie, Sophie had her now sister-in-law, and fellow J-sister, Priyanka Chopra as her maid of honour.

Luckily, it looks like there will be a second wedding for Sophie and Joe in France, and we've got a feeling Maisie will get to be bridesmaid.

Either way, congratulations to Sophie and Joe!
