A magical Harry Potter-themed wedding

A magical Harry Potter-themed wedding

Adored across the world, the Harry Potter franchise has inspired many. This couple loved the story of the boy who lived so much, they decided to incorporate it into their big day.

Kim Dao and husband Eric from Sydney are huge Harry Potter fans. The pair got engaged at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Osaka, Japan back in 2018, and knew they wanted to continue this magical theme into their big day.

“Initially, we wanted everything to be ‘Harry Potter’-themed, but as time went on, it turned more into a Western-style wedding with some ‘Harry Potter’ touches,” Dao told Insider.

The wedding itself, held at Sydney’s Caversham House Hidden Gardens, was more traditional in style with smaller touches to represent their love for the film franchise. Their tables had floating candles just like the Hogwarts Great Hall, the menu had a tiny Hogwarts illustration and guests were given light-up wands.

As a party favour, Kim andEric chose a small key in ode to the enchanted key from “Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone”.

The wedding cake featured a Deathly Hallows topper, as well as the word “always,” in reference to Severus Snape’s famous line about his love for Lily Potter.

Taking things to the next level, the couple and their bridal party wowed the crowd with a choreographed dance routine using their light-up wands. Naturally, they wore wizard robes.
