Here’s to a lifetime of Happiness with you my love – We did it. 💜👰🏻🤵🏻 #Kazad #KazadWedding #EpicNight #AfshansRoyalWedding #RoyalWedding #SymphonyHall #Walima #CivilCeremonyADVERTISEMENT
Azad is known for playing Padma Patil, one-half of the Patil twins who were Harry Potter and Ron Weasley’s unimpressed dates to the Yule ball in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”.
The actress wed Nabil Kazi in a traditional ceremony true to Azad’s South Asian roots. The lavish celebration included outfits that celebrated Azad’s Bengali background while some motifs — such as a font — harked back to her Harry Potter days.
Present in Azad’s Walima or marriage banquet were Bonnie Wright and Katie Leung, who played Ginny Weasley and Cho Chang, respectively.
Wright and Leung, both wearing understated black outfits, shared pictures from the ceremony in their Instagram pages and expressed their well-wishes.
“Over the moon to have been there with you today Afshan. We love you so much!” said Wright.
Leung has also remained close to Evanna Lynch, who portrayed Luna Lovegood in the series.
As for the other cast members, they have managed to stay connected.
Emma Watson revealed in March 2017 to Entertainment Tonight that she made a WhatsApp group chat for the “main cast” to invite them to her movie “Beauty and the Beast”. The cast showed their support, with Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) attending a Los Angeles screening.
Over the weekend, Felton tried to convert Lewis into a green-blooded Slytherin when they reunited in Venice Beach.
“Take your Slytherin paws off me, you damn dirty ape!” Lewis said in an Instagram post. JB
