Harry Potter super fans, this is for you. Long gone are the days of “comic book weddings” with mediocre design and kitschy elements. This Hufflepuff house/bohemian inspired wedding creates a curated, fluid design that is the perfect ode to everyone’s favorite wizarding world.
Given that Hufflepuff House’s colors are yellow and black, the leads on this Harry Potter wedding shoot made sure to incorporate those colors heavily. Gorgeous touches of gold were strewn throughout, adding a fun contrast within the strongly varied color scheme. One bride in the shoot wore a black lace dress with a large skirt, similar to the outfits of Narcissa Malfoy or Bellatrix Lestrange.
The reception area used dark mahogany furniture, creating a warm feeling similar to that of the halls of Hogwarts. The tables were heavily decorated in black and gold, with the whimsical addition of amber glass goblets. While the event had a clear theme, it was tied together beautifully with real world elements that kept it neat and styled.
THE FAVORITE THINGS:
As the lead designer wrote, all of the little details that spoke to the beloved novels created a clear but romantic picture of a beautiful day.
