The Red Wedding episode in Season 3 of Game of Thrones sent a chill down the spine of viewers. So disturbing was the end to the season, that it gave rise to a new term called 'Stark Luck', used to express the worst form of luck. The episode was quite a bloody one featuring deaths of majority of the members of the Stark family.

Fans of the books will know that the Purple Wedding (a major part of Season 4 of the series) sees King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) tie the knot. But the couple's happiness is short-lived as Joffrey is poisoned soon after.

In the books, Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to convince Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) to kill Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) because she thinks Tyrion killed Joffrey, but Jaime wants to learn more about the situation.

From what writer and producer, George R.R. Martin, has said about the forthcoming Purple Wedding in Season 4, it's going to be spectacular.

During an interview with TV Guide, A Song of Ice and Fire author spoke briefly about season four's 'Purple Wedding': "It's going to be the wedding of the year, and as memorable in its own way as our wedding last season. It's what the fans call the Purple Wedding, based on the color of the wine, which plays a big part. It looks spectacular, the bride's dress incorporates roses, there are 77 courses at the dinner feast, and there's some wonderful halftime entertainment."

Meanwhile, HBO's 'Making of the Game of Thrones' website has put a blog post outlining details about the forthcoming Purple Wedding. Writer Cat Taylor states that the Purple Wedding is one of the biggest scenes they have filmed since the premiere season.
