The Wedding Reception
Who: The newlyweds and all their guests
What: The wedding reception
Where: Hogwarts' Great Hall
Status: Complete

The wedding had gone off without a hitch. Well, Rosie's little tiny interruption really didn't count and it wasn't as if anybody could expect a small baby to stay quiet for the whole ceremony.

After the wedding, of course, came the reception.

The Great Hall was decorated with candles and flowers that matched the ones Lavender had had in her bouquet. A long table was set to the side for the buffet and smaller tables had been placed around the hall for the guests. The band's instruments were set up, although they wouldn't start playing until later in the evening, and an area was cleared for dancing.

It was time to celebrate!

Zach and Harry arrive at the reception.
Fleur meets her date, Grahame.
Cho catches up with Ron and meets John.
Ron goes to the bar and bumps into Zach.
Charlie and Lavender arrive at the reception. They make some speeches, talk about their honeymoon, gossip about Ron and cut the cake.
Zach returns to Harry and they make plans for later.
Lavender and Charlie share their first dance as man and wife and do a bit of mingling.
Draco and Hermione dance and Hermione recieves a marriage proposal.
Charlie and Lavender talk to the bridesmaids and Cho and Ron talk about sex.
The bride and groom have a little private time before leaving to start their new life together.

The wedding had been absolutely beautiful and he had enjoyed being there as part of a couple with Harry more than he could even say. He was looking forward to sharing all of the little things couples did with him and dancing his lover off of his feet. Of course, being together later in their quarters would be wonderful as well...

He reached around his lover and fit himself into his back, hugging him. "Wasn't the ceremony beautiful, love?"

"Yes, it was Zach," Harry said with a smile as he felt Zach's body against his. "Would it be too soon for me to ask if we can find some little closet? You've been teasing me terribly."

Harry pressed his arse back slightly against Zach.

Fleur had managed to pull herself together by the time of the reception had arived. She had quite shyly asked Grahame to the reception as her "plus one" and been pleased beyond words when he had accepted.

She waved gleefully at him when he had arrived and they had settled on a corner table and were engrossed in conversation. Fleur had seen Harry arrive in the Hall and made a mental note to go and say hello later on.

Cho had nearly died laughing when she had seen Fleur abandon the top table when Grahame arrived. She poured a glass of champagne and looked around at who had arrived.

She saw Harry with that Zach boy. Brilliant freelancer by all accounts. She frowned slightly trying to recall some of the articles he had written. Didn't someone say that he had done a lot of work in the Muggle world? Cho sipped at her chamapgne and looked round to see who else had arrived.

"Er, hey, Cho." Ron smiled, a glass of champagne in his hand. "You... look lovely." He had decided that it was best to compliment all the women because he knew exactly how much stress his mother had gone to over her outfit and knew that all the other women had probably gone through the same thing.

"So what did you think of the ceremony?"

Ron took the drinks from the barman with a grateful smile. "Thanks." It was a bit of a novelty having a bar in the Great Hall and Ron couldn't help but wonder if they could make it a permanent feature. For staff use only, of course.

Turning to take the drinks back to where Cho and John were talking, Ron came to a halt, completely unable to walk when Zach came over.

"Er, hi."

Zach flushed as he saw Ron. He placed his order at the bar and then turned toward the other man.

"Hello, Ron. I'm glad that you found what you're looking for." He looked over at the man from Charlie's bachelor party and back to Ron, keeping a smile on his face.

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.”

Harry watched Zach as he walked away and turned back to the empty table. After a short time he smiled politely as people that were sharing his table arrived but he didn't initiate any conversation.

Harry looked around for Zach and saw him kiss Ron on the cheek. He couldn't help but feel a bubble of jealosy ris up inside him. He tried not to be angry, or to feel hurt. He belonged to Zach he tried to remind himself, not the other way 'round.

Zach walked over to their table and set the drinks down before seating himself. "I'm glad that Ron is happy. It seems like he's becoming friendly with that friend of Charley's from Romania. I told him not to be a stranger. I know how important your friendship with him is to you."

He looked at Harry and almost cringed at his expression. "Is something wrong, love? Would you rather I get you something different to drink?"

After they'd cut the cake and the band had started, Lavender and Charlie made their way to the dance floor hand in hand. Lavender blushed when a few people applauded, looking sideways at Charlie and feeling a little embarrassed.

She held him close as they started to dance. "Today's been perfect," she told him softly.

He kissed her forehead. "It has," he said as they turned round the dance floor. He saw Fleur dancing with Grahame and he smiled softly.

Charlie smiled down at Laveder "And I can't wait for us to be alone."

Draco held Hermione close as they swayed to the music, her hand resting over his heart. "Have I told you how beautiful you look tonight?"

Hermione blushed and shook her head. "No, I'm not sure that you have. You're looking right handsome yourself, you know." She leaned up to press a soft kiss to his lips.

Seeing that Cho and Fleur were alone, Grahame and Fred presumably off somewhere else, Lavender pulled slightly on Charlie's arm. "Of course you did," she assured him with a playful pout.

"Talking of dragons, though, let's go see the bridesmaids."

Cho and Fleur were giggling over a glass of chamapgne when Charlie and Lavender approached.

Charlie whispered whilst they were out of ear shot. "i'll tell of you"

Chojumped up and gave them both a hug when they got to the table and Fleur gave them both a kiss.

Fleur announced, "You two made me cry. I hate you both."

Lavender giggled as Charlie led her away from his brother and their friends, going over to a more secluded spot of the Great Hall behind a floral arrangement.

"What the hell's got into your brother?" Lavender pulled a face. "Okay, that's probably the wrong question to ask."

She licked her lips. "Well, look at this," she said, glancing around. "I've got you all to myself."

“Forget Ron,” said Charlie gruffly. He pulled her into a kiss and then pulled back a little breathlessly.

He smirked at her and asked “Are you trying to seduce me Mrs Weasley?” He ran his finger down the front of her dress.
