A Game of Thrones-themed wedding sounds like a pretty poor idea if you ask us – the hit fantasy show has proved that nuptials result in only heartache and bloodshed – but that hasn’t stopped one couple, who decided to say ‘I do’ at a hotel in Croatia, where parts of the series are filmed.
In fact, the Westeros-inspired ceremony was almost incredibly authentic, when actress Emilia Clarke – AKA Daenerys Targaryen – found herself accidentally crashing it…
“We are going down in the lift [in the hotel they were staying in] and we’re like, ‘What is that…music?'” the 29-year-old revealed on the Conan O’Brien show in the US. “The doors open to the theme tune of Game of Thrones. It’s a Game of Thrones themed wedding happening in the hotel.”
“I’m in the hotel. Like, Peter [Dinklage] is going to walk in at any minute. We need to warn him!”
Unfortunately for the newlyweds Clarke decided to make a hasty exit, rather than join in the festivities.
“We were like, ‘We need to back out and back out quickly’,” she laughed, admitting that the cast hid in the corridor drinking wine because they didn’t want to be spotted by the wedding party. “It was scary!”
Game of Thrones returns to Sky Atlantic on Monday 25th at 2am and 9pm
