harry potter wedding

Earlier this year, newlyweds Cassie and Lewis Byrom said their unbreakable vows at the storybook wedding of a lifetime — literally. 

The two Harry Potter fanatics themed their nuptials to J.K. Rowling's wizarding world, everything from the location at Manchester Town Hall to the place settings to the cake to the bridal party's accessories.

Photographed by Kelly Clarke, the wedding was the magical night the Bryoms always dreamed of.

The Byroms actually got engaged in the Diagon Alley section of Orlando's Universal Studios, Clarke wrote on her website.

After that, it only made sense that the wedding follow the same theme.

Doesn't Manchester Town Hall just scream "Hogwarts"?

Just in case, the Byroms decorated the hall with banners from the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The couple featured prominently on Azkaban-esque "wanted" posters.

Everthing was Harry Potter to the MAX. Instead of flowers, the bouquet was made of curled pages from the HP books.

The tables were set according to iconic scenes from the series, and Hogwarts houses.

The diadem of Ravenclaw clearly tells me what house this is meant to be!

The bar didn't serve alcohol — it did one better, by taking a hint from Snape's potions class.

And look at that cake! The only thing that would have made it better would be some chocolate frogs.

The wedding toppers? Bellatrix Lestrange and Voldemort. So perfect.

Of course, the bride was dressed to the nines (or should I say, to the nine-and-three-quarters). Check out her wedding mani.

The garter featured the Hogwarts crest, and the groom's cufflinks and boutonniere took pages (literally) right out of the books. And wait...

Those shoes!! Get me a pair, STAT. "Something borrowed" by ass.

Even the bridesmaids got a little something from the Quidditch team.

Mazel tov, Cassie and Lewis! Grab yourselves a butterbeer and celebrate!
