Winter is coming, but this local couple celebrated their wedding first. And no, it was far from the infamous nuptials that ended in bloodshed in hit television series Game Of Thrones (GOT).

Mr Derek Lee, a sales and marketing executive, and Ms Charlotte Lun, a marketing executive, are such fans of the show, they brought the world of Westeros to their GOT-themed wedding party last Saturday.

It was not the only thing the couple, both 25, were stoked (excited) about - the much-anticipated seventh season of GOT premieres on HBO (StarHub Ch 601) on July 17 at 9am, with a same-day encore telecast at 9pm. It will also stream on HBO on StarHub Go and HBO On Demand (StarHub TV Ch 602).

Ms Lun told The New Paper: "We are really looking forward to Season 7. The latest trailer came out recently, and I had goosebumps everywhere just watching it."

Mr Lee added: "I cannot wait to see what happens to The Wall, especially when the White Walkers attack."

The couple's wedding party was held at Playhouse @ Hoot Kiam a week after their wedding banquet at Ban Heng at The Cathay, which also marked the second anniversary of their relationship.

Ms Lun and Mr Lee, who compete together in collectible card game A Game Of Thrones tournaments, dressed up as GOT's main antagonists Cersei Lannister and Jaime Lannister, who are incestuous twins.

Two Lannister family sigils were hung over the venue's front doors, and each room was transformed into a significant location from GOT, such as Casterly Rock, Lannisport and the Small Council Chamber.

The event, which took around three months to plan, cost about $5,000.

Ms Lun said: "The theme came about when we started getting into the A Game Of Thrones card game, and there is a huge community we hang out with almost every week.

"Since they know we were getting married, there was a joke going around that Derek and I are going to have the Red Wedding. Then we thought, 'Why not model the party's theme after the show we love?'"

The Red Wedding refers to the scene in the third season where two main characters were gruesomely killed during a wedding.

Many of the couple's guests adhered to the dress code, turning up as characters such as Sansa Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Petyr Baelish and a Dothraki lord.

Attention was paid to every detail, from the official soundtrack playing in the background to props such as dragon eggs and wildfire.

The wedding march was the GOT theme song, and the wedding cake featured a miniature Iron Throne replica.

But the most striking do-it-yourself prop was the iconic Iron Throne, which could have passed off as the original.

It was constructed out of a coffee shop chair, foam, cardboard and papier-mache.

'CHALLENGING'
Mr Lee said: "Building it was the most challenging. It took six Saturdays and a day in between - Charlotte took leave from work - together with friends to complete it. It was time- and labour-intensive."

The replica was 1.7m high with a 1m by 1m base footprint.

Ms Lun added: "It was made slightly smaller because we had to transport it in a van. Even when we laid the throne flat, some swords got bent."

They used paint spray cans and dry brushes and applied a coat of light green colour for an oxidised look. Some sword hilts were laser-cut.

Ms Lun said: "Everyone took lots of pictures with the throne, and it made us feel accomplished, because they responded to it like they would the official version. It validated our hard work as a team."

The couple will display it in their future matrimonial home and offer it for rent at a nominal fee.

Their attire for the wedding party were designed and tailored by Ms Lun's ex-classmate, Mr Opie Sufian, from Temasek Polytechnic's School of Design.

Her gown was a replica of Cersei's from King Joffrey's wedding, with three wigs completing the look.

Mr Lee's outfit was similar to Jaime's in the first season, before the character's hand got chopped off.

He said: "I wanted the dirty, battle-worn look, so (Mr Opie) used coffee powder to stain the shirt to achieve that. I feel that we were our own re-imagination of the characters."

When asked why they chose to portray the Lannisters, Ms Lun said it is because her friends jokingly call her Cersei "Lun-nister", a play on her surname.

Mr Lee said: "It only seemed natural that I should be Jaime, as he is Cersei's lover, even though of course it is uncommon as they are siblings."

With a laugh, he added: "I cannot be King Robert (Cersei's late husband) as I am not old and fat enough, and he is already dead."

Game of Thrones - Sahara Knite
PHOTO: Game of Thrones - Sahara Knite
Sahara Knite was born on February 4, 1975 in England as Saeeda Vorajee. She is an actress, known for Game of Thrones (2011), Kamasutra - Die indische Kunst zu lieben (2008) and Tantra - Das Geheimnis sexueller Ekstase (2008).
When one sees nudity, especially on TV, it’s easy to think that producers are just after greater ratings or audience share. In the case of Game of Thrones there’s a lot more going on than just the usual mindless sex & violence.
In Game of Thrones Sahara Knight is offered by Lord Baelish (Aidan Gillen) to a client. Sahara Knight because of her exotic looks, brown eyes, olive skin was perfect as one of the rare treats in Lord Baelish brothel. Aeryn Walker was cast as one of the incestuous Craster’s wives. [2]
Perhaps because of the many nude scenes,
Game of Thrones (GOT) producers thought it would be easier to cast talents from the porn industry: Aeryn Walker, Maisie Dee, Samantha Bentley, Jessica Jensen and Sahara Knight. [2]

Marei (Josephine Gillan), in her most famous scene to date, she performed a standing split while naked while auditioning for a threesome with Prince Oberyn Martell and his lover Ellaria, wearing nothing but a modesty patch (a piece of cloth taped over her private parts) to spare her blushes. [3]

Josephine Gillan doesn't have a lengthy resume, but there must be something about this voluptuous brunette-- the producers of Game of Thrones brought her back several times to play comely courtesan Marei, though it took her until her third appearance on the show to give us the fantastic fully nude reveal.

The actress, Josephine Gillan, really did earn her living as a prostitute before finding stardom in Game Of Thrones. And it is only her role in the show that has finally allowed her to escape.
I think the male actors suffer from performance anxiety, because they are almost naked and there are usually about 30 crew members on set.
However, her lack of modesty and experience in the adult film industry made her a natural performer. ‘They didn’t need to show me how to do anything because that’s how I earned my living,’ she admits.
She has gone on to become one of the longest surviving characters in a series which routinely slaughters them by the dozen.
