Right now, we’re pretty sure the world’s strongest man is also the world’s happiest man.

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the champion strongman who plays Ser Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on HBO’s Game of Thrones, tied the knot this past weekend with his comparatively tiny girlfriend, Kelsey Henson, in a mountainside ceremony in his native Iceland.

“It is with great pleasure that I now get to call Kelsey Morgan Henson my wife,” Björnsson shared in an Instagram post. “I get to hold this beautiful woman through thick and thin for the rest of our lives! I’m so excited for all of the future adventures we will tackle side by side.”

Henson is 5’2″ and Björnsson is 6’9″. The bride poked fun at her husband’s massive stature in a sweet Instagram post. “Looking forward to pulling this big guy around for the rest of my life,” Henson wrote. “@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 couple’s dramatic height difference has led fans to pose a very reasonable question: How the heck do the two of them manage to kiss each other?

“How do you kiss? Do you jump in his arms every time and wrap your legs around his waist? Please post a picture of this impressive action,” one commenter posted on Henson’s Instagram a year ago, during a vacation with her then-boyfriend.

Henson’s reply? “He bends, I tip toe. Or just say screw it, pick me up.”

We can’t help but wonder how they pulled it off on the big day. Henson was wearing heels, but they wouldn’t give her that much extra height. Did Björnsson bend over? Seems challenging in a suit. Therefore, we can only assume that Björnsson picked up Henson and bench-pressed her before kissing his new bride. Until there’s photographic evidence suggesting otherwise, that’s the theory we’re going with.
