Only one wedding theme would do for Cassie and Lewis Byrom — the self-confessed Potterheads spent a year planning the ultimate Harry Potter wedding. It’s been a running theme throughout their romance. Lewis, 34, surprised Cassie, 31, with a letter accepting her into The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for her 30th birthday, and inside the envelope were two tickets to the Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida. While they were there last year, Lewis got down on one knee.
Photographs from the wedding have now gone viral due to the astonishing attention to detail and dozens of references to the couple’s favorite magician.
Cassie told SheKnows that their biggest concern was ensuring the theme came across as “quirky and cool,” but not like “an 8-year-old’s birthday party.”
Unbelievably, they managed to pull this off to perfection, and without the help of a wedding planner. “We had a very clear vision about how we wanted it to look,” said Cassie. “We had round tables at the wedding so I wanted it so that no matter where you were seated there was something to look at. A few days before the wedding, at home, I set up each of the tables, took photos of each angle, printed pictures and put each table in its own box. The hotel used my pictures to set the room up on the morning of the wedding and I just kept going down to the room and checking it.”
“It was only fitting for us to have a Harry Potter-themed wedding because we had so many happy memories involving it that meant a lot to us and what better way to make such a commitment in front of your family and friends,” said Cassie, who has always loved the Harry Potter books.
“Lewis knew I liked Harry Potter when we first got together and turned up on our second date with a Harry Potter Lego man,” Cassie revealed. “I knew then he was the one for me.”
We can’t wait to see what these two do if they have a baby…
