A Harry Potter Themed Wedding at The Athenaeum Liverpool
Michelle and Ian planned a perfectly magical day at the wonderful Athenaeum Library in Liverpool – literally my dream wedding at my dream venue! A love of books and music brought Ian and Shell together so it’s no surprise that both made an appearance throughout the wedding. When Michelle first got in touch and told me their wedding day had a distinct Harry Potter theme and I could have my own wand I was in!
I headed to Liverpool on the morning of the wedding to meet up with Michelle who was getting ready with her bridesmaids. The house showed signs of all the epic wedding DIY that Michelle had been cracking on with for months. Including bouquets, hair decorations, invitations and place settings. It was amazing to get to the Athenaeum and see all her hard work come together!
Ian was waiting nervously at the Liverpool city centre venue waiting for Michelle to arrive. And what an entrance she made heading up the incredible spiral staircase. The ceremony took place in the library and I managed not to get distracted by all the lovely books. Brownie points to me. Although I admit sneaking back in later in the day to have a look around!
I had an absolute blast at this wedding and even came home with a goody bag of Harry Potter treats (which my children immediately filched). Huge congrats to Michelle and Ian – you created a wedding day that was totally YOU and everyone loved it. Here’s some of my favourites from the day.
