"Blessings of Mara upon you!"

Maramal is a Redguard priest who can be found in the Bee and Barb or in the Temple of Mara in Riften. He can sell an Amulet of Mara to the Dragonborn, allowing them to marry. He will be at the Bee and Barb the first time Riften is visited.


He is a member of the Cult of Mara and can hold weddings at the Temple of Mara between the Dragonborn and a chosen potential spouse.


  • "How may I help you, my son/daughter?"


  • It is possible for Maramal to pay hired thugs to beat the Dragonborn during the wedding if the Dragonborn stole from the Temple without being caught.
  • He and Dinya Balu are married.


This section contains bugs related to Maramal. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  / XB1  ,  PS3  / PS4  ,  PC  / MAC  , depending on which platform(s) the bug has been encountered on.
  3. Be descriptive when listing the bug and fixes, but avoid having conversations in the description and/or using first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board.
  • He may not even start the wedding due to a bug.
    • This can be fixed on the PC by typing the following into the console:
      • setstage RelationshipMarriage 100, this will marry the Dragonborn, even though the spouse will not act like it.
      • removefac 51596
      • player.removefac C6472
      • resetquest 74793
      • resetquest 21382
      • setstage 74793 10. This causes the Dragonborn to be divorced. it is now possible to get married again and Maramal should start the wedding.
  • He sometimes will not sell the Amulet of Mara, even after exhausting all dialogue choices.
    • This can be avoided by not having an Amulet of Mara in inventory before trying to buy the real one for marriage. However, this is not necessary as there are no differences between amulets of Mara and there is no point to buying one if there already is one in inventory. Looted, pickpocketed or stolen amulets can be used, too.
  • There is a bug that causes Maramal to disappear from all locations within Riften when he is spoken with about arranging the wedding. The quest marker within Riften will lead to a wall, and the map's quest marker says he is located next to Merryfair Farm.
  • It is possible for Maramal to not spawn at all. He is nowhere in the world and there is no way to talk to him without restarting the game or by the use of console commands on PC (such as "player.placeatme [character base ID]")
  • If a follower was killed at any point in the game, their body may spawn in the building, with everyone acting as though they were just killed. This will result in Marmal yelling "Get out!" whenever he is approached for the rest of the day.
  • If the Dragonborn did not arrive at the wedding on time, Maramal will shout "get out."
    • Waiting one day and asking him again after asking the Dragnborn's spouse to re-marry solves this.
  •  PS3   He sometimes does not move to the Temple of Mara after the Amulet of Mara is bought from him. The only time he enters the temple is when the Dragonborn is getting married. Afterwards he will go back to the Bee and Barb
    • This may have something to do with Sapphire not being present in the Bee and Barb; this is possible by quickly skipping through all of Shadr's dialogue and agreeing to help him, then catching Sapphire before she makes it into the tavern and convincing her to forget the debt, thus making her ignore the bar and instead go to the Thieves Guild. Sapphire's presence in the Bee and Barb, in some circumstances, is required for Maramal to initiate his dialogue and therefore leave after talking with Talen-jei, even though she serves no significant purpose.
  •  PC   If one summoned Maramal through console command and accidentally deleted the original scripted Maramal, it may result in Maramal not present during wedding and the Dragonborn "automatically refuse" to marry the spouse.
