“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”, Albus Dumbledore once said.

UK Couple Cassie and Lewis Byron found their hearts in each other and celebrated with a “Harry Potter” themed wedding spectacular enough to make even the gloomiest Slytherin smile. The two held the ceremony on Nov. 1 at Manchester’s Midland Hotel in England, according to BuzzFeed, and the results were otherworldly.

Each guest received a wand upon arrival and the bride carried a bouquet of “flowers” made from pages of the J.K. Rowling series. Place-settings came with Golden Snitches and guests drank concoctions from potion bottles.

“Planning the wedding was a full-time job, but it was worth every penny and minute we spent,” the bride told the Daily Mail.

“We sifted through car boots, discount stores and second-hand shops every weekend for three months looking for Harry Potter paraphernalia. We stayed up till 3am most nights putting wings on Ferrero Rochers and searching eBay for trinkets. I even had the bridesmaids over to cut up the 20 copies of the books we’d bought to make the bouquets.”

The event took the couple, who got engaged at Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, a year to plan, but it exceeded all expectations.

“It was a mammoth undertaking. We had to take a trip to Harry Potter World in London just to get some last-minute bits,” the bride added. “It was everything I wanted. It was the most magical wedding imaginable. The hotel staff were arguing over who was going to work that night. It was really lovely.”
