A woman from Wales loves Harry Potter So much so, that she now owns the largest collection of Wizarding World memorabilia and even had a wedding dedicated to the magical franchise.

Tracey Nicol-Lewis features 6,300 Potter themed items including 47 wands, action figures, special edition books, Lego sets and artwork.

After seeing the movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 2002, Tracey picked up her first collectible – a chocolate frog.

Then, little by little — with eBay bids and deals with friends — Tracey increased her collection to 100 items over the next four years. Now her warehouse occupies three full rooms in her house.

But the 47-year-old adds that she enjoys collecting items, as the books and movies remind her of loved ones.

Travey said, ‘I thought “oh well I’m not going to get any more” and I go to the store and there’s always something in my basket.

‘I love looking at and rearranging my collection – that’s where my happiness is.

‘Harry Potter is a magical world you can use to hide into, and that’s what I did.

‘Because I had a son in 2002, and they had the baby in the movie and all the magic, it was like having him by my side.

‘Harry Potter got me through a really tough time because when I started collecting the last gift I gave my first husband was a Harry Potter book before he passed. life.

‘That’s why I think the collection went crazy.’

Tracey even had a Potter themed wedding last year in Florida, when she married husband Martin.

And she really pushed the boat out – with a wedding cake on top of a golden diamond and a magic wand.

Tracey even wore a red and yellow Gryffindor-inspired wedding dress with the Deathly Hallows emblazoned on it and the elf Dobby painted on her shoes.

Her bouquet is also made from torn pages of a damaged Goblet of Fire version.

However, when Tracey first met Martin, her current husband, he was not immediately captivated by her hobby.

“He knew about my collection so he accepted or let it run,” she added.

‘First, I said I love Harry Potter and I collect Harry Potter, and he was really shocked when he walked around and saw the collection.’

He might not be the biggest fan, but Martin still bought a little for Tracey and even pitched the idea to get her into the Guinness World Records.

And earlier this year, the pair received the good news that Tracey had won not one but two records: the world’s largest Harry Potter and Wizarding World collection – the second of which includes both spin-off series ‘Fantastic Beasts’.

Tracey now hopes her story will encourage others to follow their passions.

‘Be who you are, don’t run after others, follow your dreams,’ she added.
