The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a truly massive game home to some very strange and frequently unexpected sights. There are giants that can knock you high into the sky, ancient crypts filled with deadly artefacts and secrets, and portals to worlds beyond our comprehension.
Yet as undeniably odd as all these things are, I don't think that any of them ever quite prepared me to see a group of Daedric worshipers calmly sat in the pews at a wedding, ready to celebrate the love between a player and their chosen NPC.
As documented by the brilliantly named snoopynoopers02 on Reddit, their in-game wedding was attended by some completely unexpected guests. Usually when someone gets married in Skyrim, those in attendance for the brief ceremony are a random handful of NPCs. In this instance, worshippers of the evil Daedric Prince Molag Bal decided to show up and pay their respects.
I've played Skyrim a lot of different ways, and have had a few wedding ceremonies in my time, and I've never seen these guys. That's probably because they usually meet the business end of my sword whenever I run into them. Oh, and there's also a half-naked woman just stood at the back by the door for some reason. Weirdest wedding ever? It might just be, although it has some competition.
Elsewhere in the Reddit thread, other players shared their own unusual Skyrim wedding encounters. One player recalled how they lost their companion Lydia at some point in the game and couldn't find her... until she showed up at the wedding as a corpse lying dead on the ground. Yikes. Another said that despite the fact they were a renowned hero in every Hold, the only attendee was a random miner.
I guess this just goes to show that even in Skyrim, wedding planning is a nightmare.
