The essential ingredients for a wedding, as any Game of Thrones fan knows: something old, something new, something borrowed, something definitely not red.

The Red Wedding, technically a celebration of the marriage of Edmure Tully and Roslin Frey, is much better known as the site of one of the series’ most bloody massacres. So when Reddit user alip_93, a professional photographer, was hired to snap photos at the wedding of actor David Bradley’s daughter, he knew there would be a photo op with the guy who engineered the deaths of (spoilers) Robb, Catelyn, and many other heroes of the North:

Good work, alip_93. It looks like Walder’s really intimidated. Now, go pay off the band so they don’t play “The Rains of Castamere” (and maybe confiscate their crossbows for good measure). When you’re done, check all the windows and doors to make sure there’s an escape route. It also might a good idea to free the direwolves that guests have tied up outside—you don’t want them to fall victim to Lannister sneak attacks.

Wait, alip_93—what are you doing? Why haven’t you started securing the perimeter? Stop talking to Walder Frey! Now you’re taking another photo? Get away while you still can! Why are you smiling (smiling!)?!

The North has been betrayed yet again. This is what we get for trusting a guy with blond hair.
