On Sunday, August 19, Afshan Azad — perhaps better known as Padma Patil from the Harry Potter series — married fiancé Nabil Kazi. Several other familiar faces were in attendance at the ceremony, including costars Bonnie Wright and Katie Leung, resulting in a bit of a Harry Potter reunion!



Azad had the night of her life, posting online:

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!

Fans probably remember Azad best for her scenes at the Yule Ball as Ron Weasley's date in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

She didn't seem to have much fun that night.

Despite the gorgeous setting...

It was never meant to be. We know Azad was much happier with her real wedding, but that doesn't mean she's forgotten about her Harry Potter days.

Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny Weasley, posted on her Instagram:

Over the moon to have been there with you today Afshan. We love you so much! Congratulations to you and Nabil, wishing you so much joy in your married life together.

Katie Leung, who played Cho Chang throughout the series, also posted a picture with this caption:

Azad's wedding seemed to go much better than Padma's Yule Ball experience.

This mini reunion seems to have gone better than one between Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Matthew Lewis (Neville), who ran into each other in Los Angeles on the same day as Azad's wedding.

Felton made another attempt to lure Lewis to the dark side, but a true Gryffindor would never budge.


It seems that being a part of the Harry Potter cast means you'll always have a friend when you need one!

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.
