When confessed ‘geeks’ Heather and Robert married, there was no question as to whether or not they’d celebrate their wedding with a fantasy them. The only question was which fantasy theme they’d choose given their love of everything from Battlestar Galactica and Doctor Who to cosplay and Dungeons & Dragons.

How much did you spend on flowers for your wedding?


But, when they discovered Dunafon Castle, in their home state of Colorado was free for their wedding date, there was only one choice, well, two, actually: Game of Thrones and The Lord of Rings, of course.

The bride, a hypnotist, wore a medieval-inspired gown with elven touches, including gossamer-like draping sleeves and layers of copper embroidery.

The groom, an actor, donned a hand-made suit of armor (in dragon green, no less), which took more than a year to make. His accessories included alchemy bottles, a wand and a copper flagon.

The couple wed in a pagan ceremony in the grounds of the castle and prize for best costume, at an event where everyone looked most authentic, went to a couple who dressed as Pan and a Dryad, complete with wings and horns.
