Harry Potter Wedding Inspiration

harry potter wedding inspiration

Bree (from the blog Capitol Romance) and Abby Grace (the photographer of this shoot) are big fans of Harry Potter, so they decided it would be fun to style a wedding shoot based on their favorite book + movies and provide all you Harry Potter fans with some swoon-worthy wedding inspiration! They wanted to come up with a shoot that would emanate “Hogwarts” but without coming across like a child’s birthday party, so they decided on an earthy, aged but magical feel to the shoot, and settled on a color scheme of purple, moss green and gold. Even if you aren’t familiar with the books + movies, I think you will find inspiration in this lovely shoot.

From Abby, The dress, from Punk Rock Bride, was a huge piece of the puzzle. The simple but incredibly elegant design set the tone for all the details we put into place. Our model’s hair was done by the amazing J Lindsay Hair Design, and she perfectly executed our haphazard description of “British, bohemian, messy, not a side chignon,” and the custom hair piece from Zazzaretti Bridal totally made the ‘do! Donna of Donna K make-up was spot on with the make-up.

One thing that was really important to us was finding a farmhouse table. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Concepts Created, who handcrafts all of their farmhouse tables from reclaimed wood. The table was made complete with an array of mismatched chairs from Maggpie Vintage Rentals, who also provided a ton of various antique accents and accessories. The entire shoot took place at Lost Creek Winery in Virginia, and we couldn’t have had a more beautiful backdrop. Tyler of Voilà! Event Studio was crucial when it came to organizing everyone and adding details that really made the shoot pop.

Wendy of Weswen Design was amazing when it came to taking the paper elements from the books and transforming them into wedding stationery. The wedding program was specifically designed to echo the wizarding newspaper, ‘The Daily Prophet.’
