Social Media Roundup: A Wedding, a Reunion, and a Trip to the Theater
In this week’s Social Media Roundup, we have weddings, reunions, and Potter book hunting!
Afshan Azad (Padma Patil) got married! Azad posted pictures of the traditional Bangladeshi ceremony held a few days before a reception.
Incredibly blessed. After a year of planning on my own, the tears and tantrums, today was an absolute dream. Married and moved out of Manchester to start my new life. Thank you to my incredible family and friends, without you I’m nothing. Best wedding ever, even if I do say so myself! Keep us in your prayers. ❤️???? #KazadWedding #RoyalWedding
Azad wore a stunning white gown for the following reception and looked radiant.
Yesterday was the most epic night. My handsome husband and beautiful in-laws went above and beyond and blew me away with the most magical Walima party. Historically, the first wedding to EVER happen in this venue, it was absolutely breathtaking. My very own Royal Wedding! ?? Thank you to everyone who helped put this night together. Here’s to a lifetime of Happiness with you my love – We did it. ????? #Kazad #KazadWedding #EpicNight #AfshansRoyalWedding #RoyalWedding #SymphonyHall #Walima #CivilCeremony
Several Potter alumni were guests at the reception, including Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley). Leung posted a photo of herself and Wright with Azad on Instagram.
Wright posted a similar photo congratulating the bride.
And these three weren’t the only Potter alumni to reunite! Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) both posted a photo of Felton holding a Slytherin backpack up to Lewis’s chest.
Please note the hilarious captions on each photo. We love seeing Potter alumni reunite, especially when they mention the series! Is this Tom’s backpack? Does Tom Felton walk around with a Slytherin backpack? We need pictures of that as soon as possible.
Tom also posted a photo to Instagram of himself outside the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child marquee in London.
After seeing the show, Tom went backstage to meet the cast, and the Cursed Child Twitter posted photos of the meeting.
"I know I’ll be in Slytherin, all our family have been.” It runs in the family! We loved having Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, at #CursedChildLDN yesterday. pic.twitter.com/qG7ffuX5xf

Can you imagine working at a bookstore and being asked by Krum himself where the Harry Potter books are?
Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) posted a photo of herself marching on Animal Rights March Day.
Hi peeps! Happy Official Animal Rights March Day! Have a peaceful and inspiring march! I’ll be speaking later on this afternoon with @earthlinged and some other activists so hope to see some of you there. Ps. Don’t look at the back of our sign it’s a fucking mess as we spent so much time on the front ??
Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) and his wife got matching tattoos for their anniversary!
We love keeping up with all of our Harry Potter actors! What was your favorite moment this week?
