A couple recently wed dressed as their favorite characters in the popular TV series Game of Thrones in the United Kingdom.
Darren Prew, the groom, dressed as Jon Snow, and his bride, Kerry Ford, dressed as the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. They married at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire, according to the Daily Mail.
The wedding party wasn’t exempt from dressing up. The 12 members spent more than 50 hours dressing up as characters from the show. Two “direwolves” were present, as well as Khal Drogo and Melisandre.
Prew surprised his wife with the idea of getting married Game of Thrones style.
“I was on Facebook one evening and I saw an advert seeking couples to marry in Game of Thrones style. I mentioned it to Darren, but said ‘”Who on earth would do that?’ Little did I know that he went online and applied—without telling me,” Ford said.
The makeover wedding was actually the prize in a contest sponsored by streaming service blinkbox Movies, who ran the contest in celebration of their showing of the fourth season of Game of Thrones, according to Hereford Times. Prew entered the couple and didn't tell Ford until after he found out they had won.
Our congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple!
