Today I am thrilled to share this spectacular Harry Potter inspired Wedding at Ruthin Castle.

She says of the couple and their incredibly creative day…
Now I am the first to admit that Harry Potter isn’t really my bag.
I read up to Goblet of Fire when I was in primary school and just lost interest after that I’m afraid, but there’s no ignoring how much these books have captured the imagination of pretty much every person ever except me!
Two of those fans are Paul and Yasmin, who really went all out to make every area fit their theme, even the venue choice revolved around adding a touch of magic.
Ruthin Castle at the little town of Ruthin in Wales is famous for it’s medieval banquets, so what better setting for a wedding breakfast in the Great Hall at Hogwarts!
I was truly blown away by Yasmin’s home-made attention to detail, with each table colour themed representing each house, using coloured fairly lights, coloured glass potion bottles, magic wands, goblets, church candles, and rustic foliage.
A sweetie bar with all your favourite enchanted goodies from Honeydukes Sweet Shop, and the most beautiful wedding cake and desert table as a real showstopping centrepiece complete with delicate matching biscuits, golden snitch cake pops, and little frog gummies.
Not only that but the ceiling was adorned with magic floating candles, the whole thing was a sight to behold and I just couldn’t take enough photographs!
Not only that, but as a surprise Paul had their very own Hedwig for the day as a ring-bearer, as well as a demonstration with a MASSIVE Eagle Owl, and to finish the day a broomstick bucking Bronco.
It really was spectacular (and hilarious)! Oh and I mustn’t forget the guest book that looked like it might bite your hand off…
