See the Photos from Thor Bjornsson’s Wedding This Weekend

World’s Strongest Man™, Game of Thrones actor, and guy who thinks he can probably deadlift 500 kilograms Hafthor Bjornsson has married in his native Iceland. The lucky lady is one Kelsey Henson and we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention what a lot of headlines are focusing on: Bjornsson is 6 feet 9 inches and Henson is 5 feet 2 inches. There has seldom been a bigger height difference between a couple, but hey, they look pretty darn happy.

Looking forward to pulling this big guy around for the rest of my life. ♥️

@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! 👰🏼🤵🏼

In a post on his own Instagram Bjornsson wrote,

It is with great pleasure that I now get to call Kelsey Morgan Henson my wife!❤️ . 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

[Don’t miss Thor Bjornsson dressed as a strongman Colonel Sanders in this bizarre KFC commercial released this summer.] 

The two met in Alberta, Canada, where Henson was working as a waitress and Bjornsson was in town for a strongman event. Here’s a photo of that fateful day when she asked him for a photo, which we’re also posting because you can really see the size difference here.

In one of her Instagram posts, someone asked how the two manage to kiss — “Do you jump in his arms every time and wrap your legs around his waist?” — and she just answered,

ahha he bends, I tip toe. Or just say screw it, pick me up!

We hope the two enjoy bending and tiptoeing for each other for the rest of their lives. Congrats, Thor!

Nick is a content producer and journalist with over seven years’ experience reporting on four continents. His first articles about health were on a cholera outbreak in rural Kenya while he was reporting for a French humanitarian organization. His next writing job was covering the nightlife scene in Shanghai. He’s written on a lot of things.

After Shanghai, he went on to produce a radio documentary about bodybuilding in Australia before finishing his Master’s degrees in Journalism and International Relations and heading to New York City. Here, he’s been writing on health full time for more than five years for outlets like BarBend, Men's Health, VICE, and Popular Science.

No fan of writing in the third person, Nick’s passion for health stems from an interest in self improvement: How do we reach our potential?

Questions like these took him through a lot of different areas of health and fitness like gymnastics, vegetarianism, kettlebell training, fasting, CrossFit, Paleo, and so on, until he realized (or decided) that strength training fit best with the ideas of continuous, measurable self improvement.

At BarBend his writing focuses a little more on nutrition and long-form content with a heaping dose of strength training. His underlying belief is in the middle path: you don’t have to count every calorie and complete every workout in order to benefit from a healthy lifestyle and a stronger body. Plus, big traps are cool.
