PRESS RELEASE: Love is in the air for Valentine’s Day wedding at Game of Thrones Studio Tour.
February 15, 2023
Love is truly in the air this Valentine’s Day at the world’s only official Game of Thrones Studio Tour where two former background actors from the hit HBO TV series had their wedding.
The couple, engaged during filming for Season 8 of Game of Thrones, also work as Studio Tour Guides at the visitor attraction.
Located at one of the acclaimed series’ original filming locations at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, Game of Thrones Studio Tour invites visitors to come up close and personal in the heart of Westeros to see breathtaking imagery, captivating sets, original props and costumes, and more behind-the-scenes elements.
The Valentine’s Day wedding between Miguel Cabrerizo and Marzenka Kochanowska took place in the authentic King’s Landing Map Room and courtyard set. The couple exchanged vows in front of adoring family and friends before they dined at a themed banquet in the authentic Great Hall of Winterfell where the cast and crew of Game of Thrones once filmed.
To mark the first-ever wedding at Game of Thrones Studio Tour, the couple also wore authentic costumes from the series during their ceremony.
Much to the surprise of Game of Thrones actors and crew at the time, Miguel proposed to Marzenka on the set of Kings Landing, during filming for the series in Belfast in 2018. Miguel had played the role of an Unsullied soldier, while his sweetheart Marzenka played several roles including a Wight, a Wilding, and a King’s Landing citizen.
After the series wrapped, the couple decided to become Tour Guides at Game of Thrones Studio Tour.
Miguel said: “Marzenka and I are huge fans of the show and books, so we made the journey to Northern Ireland to become extras on the show. We learned about the exciting plans for an official Game of Thrones Studio Tour when filming ended. We just had to work there.”
Bride, Marzenka said: “We are huge Game of Thrones fans, so it was special to have our engagement on the set of the show, and then to be married in the world’s only official Game of Thrones Studio Tour. To have the first wedding at the visitor attraction is very special too.
“We love our jobs as Studio Tour Guides. We get to share our knowledge and passion for Game of Thrones with visitors, so every day for us is fantastic.”
To continue with the theme of romance, Game of Thrones Studio Tour recently launched a temporary wedding-themed display, bringing new costumes worn in the series to the Studio Tour.
The Wedding costumes display will run until April and includes costumes worn by Sansa Stark for her marriage to Tyrion Lannister, Lysa Arryn for her marriage to Peter Baelish, the dress Lyanna Stark wore for her secret wedding to Rhaegar Targaryen, and Roslin Frey’s iconic dress worn for her wedding with Edmure Tully.
