One Games Of Thrones loving couple tied the knot dressed as Dragon Queen Daenerys and Drogo.
Simon Redstone, 26, and Sam Halstead, 33, from Cheshire, England, role played the fictional characters wduring their ceremony at Gretna Green, which took place in the dark with a raging bonfire. They two handmade their own costumes, had a hog roast reception and decorated the place with dragons. Simon arrived on a horse and their minister carried a sword.
Recently, Wedding magazine even covered how to throw a GoT themed wedding.
“We are putting it into the ceremony, the dragons and eggs etc, as it is important as it shows that side to us,” Sam told the U.K.’s Channel 4 show Wedding Town, which featured an episode on the couple.
The couple met at a comic convention (where else) when Sam was dressed up as Daenerys, played by Emilia Clarke, and Simon took notice, telling her, “If you come as Daenerys to the next convention, I will be your Drogo.”
'When I first saw Sam she was wearing her Daenerys cosplay, it was love at first sight,” he said.
They were engaged six months later and began planning their big day.
“’It was everything that we wanted and that is all that counts,” said Simon.
