Michael Hayes, 32, teamed up with the welding students at Louisville's Knight School of Welding after asking his instructor if they could build the throne in time for his wedding last fall.

The school owner Matt Hobbs told People,

He was getting married and [he and his wife] really love Game of Thrones and he wanted to know if we could make something like this for his wedding

He added,

We said we could do it for him … [instructor] Anthony Williams, he’s a really good designer and artsy guy, he took off with it.

The school also helped the project with a $7,800 cash donation to make Hayes' dream come true. Sources revealed the team took more than 110 hours and over two months to make the life-sized, aluminum throne that was made from up to 400 individually-cut swords.
