This Couple Had “Game Of Thrones”-Themed Wedding As John Snow and Daenerys

Posted in: ,

First it was the world cup kits and now it is a wedding.

Darren Prew and Kerry Ford, from Hereford, won a competition to make them over as their favourite characters from Game Of Thrones for their wedding.

Darren, a 37-year-old plasterer, was transformed into the Night's Watch warrior while his 33-year-old bride dressed as Daenerys.

The pair found a castle, Eastnor Castle near Ledbury in Herefordshire, for the big bash and 12 members of the wedding party spent more than 50 hours being transformed into fantasy characters from the show.

Ms Ford even arrived at the service on a white horse, while Mr Prew arrived with two fierce looking dogs on leashes. The pair won the marriage makeover when they entered a competition by streaming service blinkbox Movies who are showing the fourth series of the hit show.

Ms Ford said: "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."

But she was impressed by her new husband's makeover, saying: "I thought the transformation was amazing, it was like marrying Jon Snow. It was very, very weird and surreal to see Darren like that."

Mr Prew, who said it was "too good an opportunity to pass up", added: "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."

Ms Ford, a professional cake designer who spent two weeks creating an elaborate five tier wedding cake, said: "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. 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."
