Magical Gryffindor Wedding Inspiration at The Milestone Iron Manor
by Brynlee Handy October 26
This Harry Potter wedding inspiration will enchant you in a blink, all captured by Swish & Click Photography in moody, magical scenes. A venue as grand as The Milestone Iron Manor | Montgomery was the only true choice for a backdrop that could pass for a Houston take on Hogwarts and these styled scenes brought out the property’s stately side even more. Their Great Hall reception was complete with floating candles, potions, and so many other details that brought the spellbinding shoot to life, while our bride modeled a gown from EVOKE: the bridal experience that featured the prettiest long sleeves and open neck design trimmed with loose-edge chantilly lace over a sweetheart illusion neckline. A vintage lounge setup from Love Birds & Co. makes it easy to nestle and get cozy in a formal space and provides the perfect seating option for guests taking a casual stroll around your venue during cocktail hour. Just be sure no one gets their broom stuck on the roof! Potterheads, bookworms, and unique nuptial fanatics alike are sure to be caught in the spell of this Harry Potter wedding inspiration. See it for yourself down below, and read on for a note from the photographer about the vision and design behind this styled shoot. Cheers!

From the photographer: “This shoot was inspired by the Hogwarts house Gryffindor! We wanted to go ALL OUT, so we hung candles in the reception space (thanks to College Park Flowers), we included four long tables to mimic the Great Hall at Hogwarts, and we decorated the ceremony space to look like the Enchanted Forest. Instead of having just a bride and groom, we wanted to include a wedding party for the shoot. Nyoka Gregory Beauty did an amazing job at doing the hair and makeup for all the women, while keeping it in theme. Every detail, from the cake with the lit candles, to the drinks that smoked, from invitation suite in maroon and black to the gold seating in the courtyard, everything was magical and in theme! It truly is an elegant representation of a Harry Potter wedding that any couple would love to bring to life!”
