Witch Weekly's Wedding Bonanza

Summer is here, bringing with it the peak of wedding season! Well, that might not be entirely true since some areas that reach scorching temperatures consider summer off-season for weddings... Still, there is always a sense of pageantry, fantasy, and being royalty for your wedding day! And, let's face it, we have all heard of Bridezillas.
Ragna Lokisdottir: Daily Prophet - July 2019
In July's Daily Prophet, which can be found here, we read all about weddings in the wizarding world. From wedding crashing in Wizarding Crimes, to talk of "The Perfect Wedding!" in Rating and Reviews, the Daily Prophet was brimming with wedding fever, and now the magazine world is keen to keep up that momentum. That is why this month we have a special task for you, all the way from the offices of those who brought you the Most Charming Smile Award. Yep, you guessed it; Witch Weekly needs your help!
TASK
With wedding season already here and expectant brides sending Howlers to the editor's office every day in need of the much awaited wedding issue, Witch Weekly is in a bit of a bind. You see, a certain disgruntled ex-employee seems to have destroyed their master copy of this month's issue, but they need still to publish quick sharp. Therefore, your task this month is to create an article that you think would be fitting for the Witch Weekly wedding issue. Whether you would like to memorialise your wedding planning, allay some wedding worries, tell the Wizarding World about this year's wedding must-haves, or even share some wedding mishaps and horror stories, the world is your oyster bouquet. All we ask is that you inform and entertain the readers of Witch Weekly.

This is a writing or graphics contest. All written articles must be between 250 and 500 words (inclusive); all graphically-created articles can be made using any graphical, or even physical, means - the parameters are wide open for this contest, thank Rita Skeeter.

If you decide to write about a particular wedding, it cannot feature a canon character with a known marital status. For example, depicting the wedding of Madam Hooch would be allowed, but not the wedding of Luna Lovegood.


RULES
- Written entries must be between 250 and 500 words as per wordcounter.net.
- Graphic entries must contain mostly your own work. You may use some stock images and photomanipulation, but you must provide links to where you found the image(s).
- All HEX terms and rules apply.
- All work must be your own. Anyone found cheating will be immediately disqualified.
- Entries should be posted in this hidden replies thread by 28th August at 11:59 PM HEX time.
- Entries will be voted on for first, second, and third place prizes. All other entries will be randomised for the remaining prizes.
- If you have any questions, please post them in this thread.


PRIZES
First Place: Xenophilius's Tassled Hat + 1000 HP + 4 raffle tickets
Second Place: James' & Lily's Wedding Cake Charm + 1000 HP + 4 raffle tickets
Third Place: Wedding Invitation + 1000 HP + 4 raffle tickets
Fourth Place: 1000 HP + 3 raffle tickets

Fifth Place: 1000 HP + 3 raffle tickets

Sixth Place: 1000 HP + 3 raffle tickets

All other qualifying entries will earn two (2) tickets to the Newsstand's Quarterly Raffle.

Are the winners going to be randomised or chosen by judges?

I may or may not have just edited it in.

The entries will be judged, but only first to third places will be judged. Fourth, fifth, and sixth place will be randomised.

Does it need to be canon or can we use an OC?

@MissHavok you can create your own characters or use canon characters if you wish. You don't have to write about anybody if you don't fancy it, this one is wide open.

If we choose to do the writing, can a small graphic be added? Like a header? Just as an example of what we are discussing in the article?

Yes, you may add a graphic, although, you will be judged solely on the writing.
