Every couple wants their wedding day to be magical.
But one pair’s big day really was spellbinding – because every part was themed around Harry Potter.
Ria Scriggins, 34, and Matthew Tipper, 31, are both obsessed with the wizarding series.
They even have a nine-month-old daughter named Luna and Ria has a Harry Potter tattoo on her wrist.
So when they were planning their big day, they knew they had to incorporate it.
Part-time model Ria said: ‘I have always been a massive Harry Potter fan.
‘I grew up reading the stories and every time I watch the films it takes me back to when I was younger.
‘Before I met Matthew I had never met someone who liked it as much as me but he is just as passionate about Harry as I am.
‘It’s wonderful to be able to share that with someone and when we decided to get married it seemed obvious to have a Harry Potter theme.
‘Everything about the wedding is Harry Potter themed even the vows. I said ‘After all this time?’ which is one of my favourite quote from Dumbledore and Matthew simply said ‘Always’. It was perfect.’
The quote comes from the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is spoken by Professor Severus Snape revealing he loved Harry’s mother.
The couple arrived for the ceremony at Glenfield Town Hall on Saturday, wearing Hogwarts gowns and accompanied by an owl.
And for her wedding dress, Ria wore a white version of the dress worn by Hermione for the Yule Ball in the fourth book.
Matthew, a sales manager, donned a burgundy Gryffindor suit for the big day.
Ria said: ‘I studied the movies to cram as many Harry Potter details into the wedding.
‘Even the tables have little golden snitches on them, which are little Ferrero Rocher chocolates with wings on them.
‘My dress is white, but it is in the same style as the one Hermione wears for the Yule Ball from the Trizward Tournament in the fourth film.’
The couple will continue the wizard theme on honeymoon when they take a VIP tour of the Harry Potter studios in Watford.
