“Mischief Managed” ~ A Harry Potter inspired Wedding styled shoot

Today I am excited to share this awesome Harry Potter inspired Wedding styled shoot.

There is more than just a bit of Harry Potter obsession happening in this house and so we adore this shoot which is en point in its styling giving beautiful inspiration without being twee.

Images were captured by Caroline Potter Photography with styling by Aisle Hire It and the talents of an incredible collaborative team…

I hand over to Ellis of Aisle Hire It to tell you all about the shoot…


“Shot at the quirky Elmore Court in Gloucestershire, this shoot combined both a light, airy, fresh, pretty feel during the daytime and captured a darker, more edgy moody & magical evening vibe.”

“The inspiration compromises the utterly awesome new 2017 Charlotte Balbier Bridal Untamed Love collection (I love bridal wear that isn’t typically ivory/white!), a giant floral/botanical circular swing, amethyst crystal wedding cake, LUMOS letter lights, flying golden snitch ferrero rocher, and apothecary/gothic/HP style stationery.”

“It was a Hogwarts worthy set up showcasing with fantastic venue styling (with tonnes of baby pumpkins, potion bottles and candles!) to ‘mischief managed’ cake topper and stunning floristry.”

“Our team ensured we captured both a dreamy, innocent, fresh vibe in the day time and then moved to a darker evening look, so as to mirror the way in which the Harry Potter books were written – everything was so innocent, young and joyful but as HP grew up, things became more gothic, sinister and darker.”

“We wanted to create a similar feeling, whilst ensuring that the mood was still bridal, with plenty of romantic touches such as soft mood lighting, beautifully botanical bridal wear and gorgeous styling. ”

“This was an absolute pleasure to curate and to work with so many fantastic suppliers.”

“I have to highlight that Kat (the florist), Caroline (the photographer) and I are all *huge* HP fans, and we’ve wanted to style this HP shoot for years. ”

Thank you so much to the collaborative team for sharing this Harry Potter inspired Wedding styled shoot.

Pulling off a themed wedding look can sometimes be tricky especially with Harry Potter, and there is a very fine line between stylish and child party like.

But the team have gone beyond to create a magical and elegant shoot that will transport any couple straight to Hogwarts.
