The Wiggles stars Lachlan “Lachy” Gillespie and Emma Watkins have tied the knot in a stunning country-side ceremony in front of 200 close friends and family.
The newlyweds confirmed their exciting wedding news through a statement on Sunday.
“Yesterday, Saturday April 9th, they tied the knot with a late afternoon wedding ceremony at Hopewood House in beautiful Bowral, in NSW’s Southern Highlands,” the couple’s representative announced.
Emma, 26, beamed radiantly in an elegant ivory vintage-meets contemporary gown by Australian designer Suzanne Harward. A diamond headpiece by milliner Viktoria Novak complimented the beautiful look of The Wiggles bride.
Discarding his usual Wiggles purple turtleneck, Lachy, 29, gave a nod to his Scottish heritage by donning a tartan sash across his suit. Fellow red Wiggle Simon Pryce was also on hand as one of his six groomsmen.
Blue Wiggle Anthony Field also helped at the wedding as part of a group of bagpipers who provided the soundtrack as Emma walked down the aisle and when the bridal party left the ceremony.
In a beautiful touch, the couple’s wedding rings have Emma’s trademark Wiggles’ bow engraved on them and each are set with nine rubies, to mark their wedding date. Their wedding cake was also adorned with the famous bow.
Obviously enamored with his beautiful bride, Lachy said:
“Seeing Emma was the most magical moment of my life. Everything else just seemed to melt away.”
While Emma, the first female Wiggle of the supergroup, summed up the incredible day with these touching words:
“Lachy. Love. Laughter. The best day of my life.”
All members past and present of the Wiggles were in attendance, except for founding member Greg Page who sadly had another commitment.
Last May, just two months after going public with their romance, the children’s entertainers confirmed their engagement.
Congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you many years of happiness.
