Game Of Thrones Fans Throw Lavish Show-Themed Wedding

A pair of 'Game of Thrones' fans have tied the knot in a lavish wedding inspired by the hit HBO fantasy.

Darren Prew and Kerry Ford were made up as characters Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen for their nuptials, at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire.

The couple had won the chance to have their wedding made-over as part of a competition by streaming service blinkbox Movies, which is showing the fourth series of the show.

Said Kerry: “I was on Facebook one evening and I saw an ad seeking couples to marry Game of Thrones style. I mentioned it to Darren. I said 'Who on earth would do that?'

“Little did I know that he then went online and applied - without telling me.”

Despite the surprise, she said: “I thought the transformation was amazing, it was like marrying Jon Snow. It was very, very weird and surreal to see Darren like that.”

Darren, meanwhile, said that the chance was 'too good an opportunity to pass up'.

“We were planning on getting married next year, but I knew we just had to go for it. I have been a massive Game of Thrones fans since the beginning, so having our biggest day styled in such an amazing way is a dream come true,” he added.

As a cake designer, Kerry spent two weeks making the Thrones-themed cake for the event too.

“It's comprised of each of the Game of Thrones' houses, then there are the wedding vows from Game of Thrones, King Joffrey's crown made out of chocolate and topped with the famous iron throne,” she said.

“It was almost a shame to see it eaten. I changed my mind over the design of this cake so many times, it's the most important cake I'll ever make.”
