Having Apparated back to Hogwarts, Lavender and Charlie meandered their way to the Great Hall, taking their time. It was their party, so people would just have to wait for them.

Before they went back in, Lavender pulled Charlie into a soft kiss. Pulling back, she smiled. "Lavender Weasley. That's going to take some getting used to."

Charlie nodded seriously. “We might have to stay in until you get used to it.” They reached the Great Hall and listened to the buzz of laughter and chatter.

“Well, they seemed to have started without us. They probably have noticed we’ve been missing but will be too polite to mention it.” He paused. “Well most of them anyway.”

"Stay in? Hmm. I think I could live with that." Lavender grinned. "Of course, I've got the rest of my life to get used to it."

A few people waved at them when they came into the Great Hall and Lavender blushed. "Shall we get some drinks?" she asked.

Charlie squeezed her hand and nodded. He waved back at the people who had waved at them. They headed to the bar before heading towards their seats at the Head Table.

He whispered in her ear, “I wasn’t expecting so many people to turn up.”

Lavender giggled, sipping her champagne. "Probably wanted to see if Charlie Weasley really did get married," she said in a teasing whisper, although she had just as many friends at the reception.

Looking around, she remarked, "It's so nice to see so many people in the Great Hall. Like the school has some life back. And they're here for us. To share this with us."

Charlie made a face at her. “Oi cheeky. The same could said for you.” He looked round again and looked up at the ceiling. “Even the sun’s shining. What more can you ask for.”

He nudged her. “I think people are wanting eat. Time for speeches?”

Laughing, Lavender leant over and kissed his cheek. "Don't think there's anything more I could ask for. Got everything I need."

She nodded, glancing around the hall. "Yes, time for food, I think. I'm starving all of a sudden." She frowned a little. "Speeches, too, I suppose."

Charlie shrugged. “Might as well get it over and done with.” He stood up and cleared his throat. “I’d like to thank you all for coming. My wife and I” he stopped whilst people cheered, “really do appreciate you all coming. So, please eat drink and generally be merry. And please remember that there are beds available around the school.”

He grinned and sat back down.

Lavender laughed when Charlie referred to her as his wife. It was true, but there was something about it that was ridiculously funny. She stood up, still grinning, her hand reaching for Charlie's.

"Like Charlie said..." She rolled her eyes when there were a couple of catcalls. "Like my husband said," she corrected, blushing, "thank you so much for coming today. It's amazing to see so many people here supporting us. The food is just being served now and the bar is well-stocked, so please enjoy yourselves."

They both sat down and Charlie kissed her knuckles. Molly and Hyacinth bought Rosie up to the head table and Charlie settled her on his lap.

The waiters started bringing the food around and it smelt wonderful.

Lavender put down her glass of champagne, thanking the waiter who brought their food.

On Charlie's lap, Rosie flapped her hands excitedly. "Ung!"

Laughing, Lavender stroked her cheek. "You can't be hungry. I saw you having a bottle just now."

Rosie flashed her a gummy smile, twisting to look up at Charlie. "Da?"

Charlie beamed as she said that. “Aren’t you a clever girl? Yes you are.” He gave her a napkin to play with and she clung onto it with an expression of concentration.

He frowned and looked up at Lavender. “She hasn’t been talking with you, has she?”

A little sadly, Lavender shook her head. "No, not really." Rosie giggled, playing with the napkin, and Lavender had to smile at the expression on her face.

"However," she said with a grin, "yesterday she rolled over all by herself." Lavender giggled slightly. "Kept doing it, too. I had to put a spell on the bed to stop her falling off."

Charlie laughed. “Atta girl,” he told Rosie. She gurgled and took a swipe at him. He patted Lavender’s knee and then reached for a piece of bread.

“She’ll start with you as well. I promise.”

Lavender sighed, picking up her glass and taking a sip of champagne. "I know she will. She's still only little, anyway."

"Bah!" Rosie told her in all sincerity, making Lavender giggle. She looked up when she heard the sound of a camera, to see that the photographer had snapped a picture of them. He smiled at them and wandered off to take some more pictures of the guests.

Lavender stroked Rosie's red hair. "Besides, we always knew she'd be a daddy's girl."
