‘Game of Thrones’ Creator George R.R. Martin Jokes about Kimye Wedding

"Game of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin made a joke on Twitter about the epic wedding of Kim Kardashian to rapper Kanye West over the weekend, Daily Mail reported.

Martin, who is no stranger to weaving tales of wedding extravaganza, took to Twitter on Sunday, where he wrote, "I don't know why I wasn't invited, I'm great at weddings... @KimKardashian @kanyewest."

The 65-year-old novelist got laughs, nearly 7,000 re-tweets and more than 5,000 favorites for his tongue-in-cheek joke.

Martin's fantasy books, "Game of Thrones," is perhaps known, in part, for its wedding celebrations, which tend end in bloody massacres and untimely deaths.

The wedding of Kardashian and West in Florence, Italy, however, was substantially more civilized.

The 33-year-old reality star reportedly married the 36-year-old rapper in front of 600 friends and relatives at the 16th century Forti di Belvedere on Saturday. After the wedding ceremony, the guests ate together on a 70-meter-long marble banquet table, which is a gift from craftsman Gualtiero Vannelli, according to US Weekly.

The bride chose a custom made Givenchy mermaid-silhouette gown in white lace.

The ceremony was a "princess fairy tale for Kim," an insider told US Weekly. "Kanye thought of every detail."

The newly-married couple, who are parents to 11-month-old North West, will embark on their European honeymoon, a source said.

Kardashian and West were good friends before they stepped out as a couple in 2012. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest in October, West said he was fascinated with the reality star.

"I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time," West revealed in an interview with "On Air with Ryan Seacrest." "I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton... and I remember telling my boy... 'Have you seen that girl, Kim Kar-dijon?'"'

Kardashian, however, told Seacrest in a separate interview that she didn't see their relationship as anything but friendship in the beginning.

"I think you never know what it'll really end up being like until you try and have a relationship and two years ago we tried and we realized it really does work. But [in the beginning], I was looking at it in such a friend way for so long and he was there to support me and be that friend to really talk about every experience I was going through, so it breaks my heart to look at it now and think I must have been killing him inside when he felt a certain way," Kardashian said.

It is the first marriage for West, while Kardashian was previously married to Damon Thomas, a music producer, in 2000 and to Kris Humphries in 2011. Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries after 72 days of marriage.
