If Harry Potter Had a Christmas Wedding This Would Be It


Magical wedding ideas from Hogwarts

In between opening gifts and eating tons of food this holiday, we have the perfect Christmas inspiration that's totally unique + beautiful to share with you. In fact, if Harry Potter did have a Christmas wedding, we're pretty sure this would be it. 

The bold red and gold color scheme of Gryffindor House was the perfect fit for a Christmas wedding at this RL modern day Hogwarts, Laurel Hall. Captured and designed by die-hard fan Rachel Giese Creative LLC, you're in for a very special treat (and speaking of treat..wait till you see the cookies!) See all the magical details below and in the full gallery. Happy Christmas from Hogwarts and from all of us here at WeddingChicks!

From the biggest fan


From Rachel Giese Creative LLC: What’s the best way to get into the holiday spirit? Two words, my friend: Harry Potter. This is the season where you can curl up next to a fire with some popcorn, your favorite pajamas, and all eight Harry Potter films. I am a huge Harry Potter fan (some would say I’m slightly obsessed), and I wanted to put my love to good use for the holidays.

Magical holiday cheer


I wanted to make this wedding shoot inspirational and full of holiday cheer. No, technically Harry Potter isn’t a Christmas movie, but nothing compares to the Great Hall. The colors alone are enough to make you feel at home. Of the four Hogwarts houses, I felt that Gryffindor’s rich red and gold colors specifically were perfect for a winter wedding.

Inspiration for the Harry Potter Fan


My goal was to inspire fellow Harry Potter fans and give them great ideas for their wedding day. When it comes to your big day, don’t be afraid to be yourselves. Even if your guests don’t understand your obsession, they won’t object to a golden snitch sugar cookie (which were amazing, by the way.) We really wanted to show that it’s possible to keep the elegance of a wedding in the table decorations, flowers, and venue while also having some fun with other elements.
