The world has gone crazy for Harry Potter themed weddings and from these images it is clear to see why. Incorporating all the elements from J.K.Rowling's sensationally successful series, these ideas show just how easy it is to replicate the wizarding world at your wedding.
The engagement shoot
Before the big day, if you know you are definitely going to have a Harry Potter theme why not give your guests a teaser in the engagement shoot?
The hen party
And you can even carry the theme through to your hen party with sashes which perfectly exhibit the theme for your special day.
Come the big day, your cake is the perfect opportunity to make a bold Harry Potter-centred statement. Choose what elements you would like to incorporate and ask your cakemaker to work their magic.
Turn to Olivanders and his personalised selection of wands for an unforgettable favour idea. Or how about chocolate frogs, perfectly presented in replica packaging?

With the Great Hall as inspiration, you can create a truly magical and majestic setting for your wedding breakfast. Suspended candles, opulent centrepieces and banqueting tables will make your wedding one to remember. And let your creative juices run wild with signs and DIY details that do all the talking.
The table plan
Get creative and give your table plan some serious thought, asking your stationer to make use of Harry Potter fonts and parchment for an authentic look.
Harness the magic of owl post and have your rings delivered by a Hedwig lookalike during your ceremony. You could even opt to have the ring presented in a customised box which captures the theme.
"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good". The Marauder's Map makes for a spell-binding stationery idea and can be personalised to play out your love story on paper. Mischief managed.
From Quidditch broomsticks to house scarves, the enormity of Harry Potter prop ideas will ensure you are never short of choice.
Harry Potter-themed bridal shoes are a must for any die-hard fan and offer the ideal keepsake to be treasured for years to come. Depending on your house allegiance, here are a few options to whet your appetite - and check out the 'something blue' pair.
Harry Potter accessory options are plentiful for the man of the moment. Branded shoes, a house tie or themed cufflinks can all add details which create spectacular photo opportunities.
A dessert table or sweet stop themed with Harry Potter quotes is an easy DIY idea that is guaranteed to keep your wedding guests happy. You could even serve Butterbeer - or a similar tipple in branded glasses - at the drinks reception, and carry themed culinary choices through to the wedding breakfast.
If you'd rather faux flowers, then how about paper roses crafted from the pages of your favourite Harry Potter book? You can even request charms be added that truly reflect the theme.
