Humor / Romance

The Wedding

As Ginny Weasley watches her oldest brother get married, she starts to think that there will be no day like this for her. And as her 6th year approaches, plans are being set in motion that will change her life and the lives of a few Slytherins as well; forever. Will these plans backfire or will everything turn out for the best? Read to find out.

Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour walked slowly down the makeshift isle, linked arm in arm as they made their way toward Arthur Weasley. He was the man chosen by the bride and groom to perform the wedding; they were the couple chosen by the gods to unite on this fine spring day.

The sun could not have chosen a more perfect day to shed its light on a group of happily gathered people. It was a beautiful spring day, and that only enhanced the splendor of this joyful occasion. From a nearby tree, flowers cascaded like rain upon the couple as they reached the altar, ready to be wed.

They turned and faced each other, unlinking arms and taking hold of each other's hands. Arthur smiled proudly at them and slowly pulled out a small, black, leather-bound book.

"Dearly beloved," Arthur began, still beaming brightly at Bill and Fleur, "Today we are gathered to celebrate the union of Bill and Fleur."

"Bill, Fleur, would you please extend your wands?" He asked; Bill and Fleur quickly nodded and pulled out their wands. "Let's begin." As Arthur began to speak in a language, which sounded suspiciously like Elvish, sliver sparks began flying from Bill's wand. He continued speaking, and the same happened to the flaxen haired woman across from his son, illuminating Bill's scared face.

Arthur paused and glanced at the crowed standing behind his son and daughter-in-law and cleared his throat. "Bill, do you take this woman, to be your wife? In sickness and in heath, forsaking all others as long as you both shall live?" Arthur asked his son, who grinned in a very wolfish manner.

"I do." Bill said, smiling at Fleur beside him.

"And, Fleur, do you this man, to be your husband? In sickness and in heath, forsaking all others as long as you both shall live?" He asked Fleur nodded.

"Je vais. Yes, I do." Fleur replied smiling sweetly at Bill, then at Arthur.

Arthur slowly closed his eyes, as well as the book in his hands. "I now, by the power vested in me do pronounce you husband and wife." Arthur said as Ron, Bill's youngest brother handed him Fleur's ring and while Ginny, Bill's only sister and youngest sibling handed Fleur Bill's ring.

Bill slowly slipped a narrow white gold band on Fleur's finger, his eyes dancing with excitement and happiness. As Fleur slipped a second white gold band onto Bill's finger, tears started falling from her eyes, then Bill slowly lifted Fleur's veil and leaned in to kiss her.

"I give you Mr. and Mrs. Bill Weasley, ladies and gentlemen!" Arthur shouted cheers erupted from behind them. Ginny diverted her eyes sadly, tears slowly forming in her eyes.
