Planning your Harry Potter wedding

The best place to start is to re-watch, or re-read, your most treasured instalments from the series and keep a note of the details and phrases that you’d like to include. Iconic elements also work really well because you can guarantee that your guests will absolutely understand what you’re doing. So, how about wands for every guest when they arrive at your ceremony?

You also need to spend some time with your venue to work out what’s possible and what will create the wow factor that you’re looking for. If you’re allowed to suspend decorations then what could be better than pretty flying keys?

You can buy these cheaply on auction sites and spray paint them gold yourself. Candles feature heavily at Hogwarts and whilst you might not be able to make hundreds of them magically float above your tables, you can make your own display with lots of bottles that does create a brilliant impression.

Of course, if you can’t choose your favourite line, then we recommend just bringing along the whole book! The novels themselves make fabulous table centres when they’re all stacked up or you can create decorations and table runners from the pages themselves.
