A Harry Potter wedding at The Crown and Thistle

Of course I said yes! It sounded amazing and I couldn't wait for Nikki and Chris's wedding day. I have photographed quite a few Crown and Thistle Abingdon weddings, but never a Harry Potter inspired wedding.

Wedding ceremony in the barn at Crown and Thistle

The civil wedding ceremony took place in the little barn which is part of the Crown and Thistle hotel, bar and restaurant. Its a secluded and delightful venue, full of character with wooden beams and fairy lights. A perfect location for a small and intimate wedding in Abingdon.

I took a few photos of Nikki getting ready before the ceremony. The bedrooms at The Crown and Thistle are unique and tasteful, and certainly fit the styling of the rest of the hotel.

The guests started to arrive and it was soon time for the ceremony. The rings were stored in a fantastic ring box, and the flowers were created from Harry Potter book pages. Even Nikki's flowers were Gryffindor colours!

Abingdon wedding photography in the Abbey Grounds

Its always enjoyable to take a stroll to Abbey Grounds for a few wedding portraits of the couple. This gives them a chance to chat to each other away from the excited guests as well! We took a few relaxed photos before heading back to the party, where everyone was outside enjoying the evening.

What can I say - MAGICAL is how I would describe the Brown and Thirstle wedding reception room. There were string lights, Harry Potter ornaments, scrolls and so many perfect touches. It really felt just like Hogwarts!

The guests soon took their seats for the speeches and meals, and the room was soon ready for the evening festivities. Everyone was up dancing and enjoying this very wonderful day. Congratulations Nikki and Chris! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness x
