Game Of Thrones - and the infamous wedding - means that not many people would associate the bloodthirsty drama with a romantic wedding.
But, for superfan Darren Prew and bride Kerry Ford, the show provided the ultimate inspiration for their big day - and, thanks to blink box Movies, the duo tied the knot as characters Daenerys Targaryen ‘Khaleesi’ and Jon Snow.
Bride Kerry explained: “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!”
Groom Darren added: “It 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.”
The bride was styled as the stunning Daenerys Targaryen ‘Khaleesi’ with a handmade dress and trademark white blonde locks. Groom Darren adopted the smouldering looks of hero Jon Snow.
On seeing each other at the altar, bride Kerry commented: “I thought the transformation was amazing, it was like marrying Jon Snow. It was very, very weird and surreal to see Darren like that!”

That was mad - but also, let's face it, pretty awesome.
