Movies are fast becoming an increasingly popular source of inspiration for couples who want to have a unique wedding. And with the help of wedding planners, to recreate your wedding venue into your most-loved movie is perhaps not too difficult (as long as you’re willing to spend the $$$) but for those with a smaller budget, DIY is undoubtedly the way to go.

Before you start saying “No way! Are you kidding me?”, read on about Mrs Victoria Maclean-Price, a bride from the United Kingdom, who made her wedding into an homage to her favorite Harry Potter and her husband’s film of choice, Star Wars.

Note: she did all the decorative items, by herself.

Speaking about her unusual wedding, the Harry Potter aficionado said, “While planning the wedding with one of my bridesmaids, she told me to make sure that we put our own personal stamp on our wedding day.”

“I am the Harry Potter fan and Adam is the Star Wars fan, so what better way to make it our day, then to have these two films as the theme for our big day. It was the most perfect combination: the best of both worlds,” she added.

As a result, invitations to the wedding came in the shape of Hogwarts’ acceptance letters while the cake was decorated with an AT-AT walker. Guests were also surprised by a life-size “pensive” (the golden sink used by Professor Dumbledore to relive precious memories) and a replica of Godric Gryffindor’s sword!



In keeping with their passion for all things magical, the pair even managed to unearth a photographer who moonlights as a magician, and who spent the rest of the wedding entertaining guests with tricks.

What a cool wedding!
