I was recently very lucky to be a part of a very unique, but enormously fun wedding in Michaela and Paddy’s wedding at the SC Pannell Winery in Mclaren Vale, south of Adelaide. Michaela and Paddy, well maybe just Michaela, were super keen on incorporating some awesome Harry Potter wedding photos into their wedding photography, for which I was their wedding photographer. Before arriving at Michaela’s place of preparation on the day I was unaware of the awesome home-made Harry Potter Wedding inspired props she had prepared for the day.
Harry Potter, in case you’re not aware is a series of seven fantasy novels written by the British author J. K. Rowling. The series chronicles the adventures of Harry Potter, who was unaware he was a ‘wizard’ at the beginning of the story arc, and his friends Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, all of whom are students at a hidden wizard school called ‘Hogwarts’. The main story is about Harry Potter and his friends overcoming an evil wizard and saving wizard kind from evil.
Harry Potter Wedding Photos
First up was her bouquet, homemade from printed pages from Harry Potter books. If you look carefully you can make out the words ‘Potter’ among the petals!
Next is the Bride and Groom showcasing their magical talent by flooring their entire wedding guestlist. I’m amazed at how ‘into it’ the older guests were, as they really threw themselves around for this photo which turned out awesome.
Next up in the Harry Potter Wedding Photos we took was individual portraits showcasing Michaela and Paddy’s personal Patronus’ (Patronii?) Michaela had a cat, while paddy had a German shepard.
And finally, the most amazing Harry Potter Wedding photo I could have hoped to shoot, especially with the bride in a long dress, the couple jumping at each other in a wizard duel.
