Wedding season has yet to begin, but Lewis and Cassie Byrom (AKA the biggest J.K. Rowling fans EVER) pretty much already had the wedding of the year when they turned their big day into every Harry Potter enthusiast’s biggest fantasy-come-true (apart from the yet-to-be-released eighth book release, that is!)
The couple (who got engaged at — where else? — the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios) spared no detail, from the venue (Manchester’s sprawling Midland Hotel) to the announcements (Harry-style wanted posters) and the bouquet (which was — get this — made of pages from Harry Potter books, and by the bride herself, no less!) Now that’s a DIY!
Carrying a real replica of Hermione’s handbag from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows (all the better to offset her Slytherin and Gryffindor heels — squee!), the bride also rocked a Blake Lively-style Harry Potter mani and a Harry-themed garter belt.
We SO wish we could have been on that guest list — we would’ve had the perfect gift! Alas, for now, we’re content to revel in the beautiful photos (shot by photographer Kelly Clarke) while we daydream about what that epic cake (topped with Lego Harry figures!) tasted like.
Congratulations, guys! We’re truly blown away by your creativity.
