Yellow and purple come together in Wiggly wedding

Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins and purple Wiggle Lachy Gillespie have wed in a very Wiggles themed ceremony.

The pair, who took over from original Wiggles Jeff Fat and Greg Page in 2012, announced their engagement in May last year and on Saturday afternoon became husband and wife.

The intimate ceremony at Hopewood House in Bowral, New South Wales, was attended by 200 of the couple’s close family and friends including Fat along with current red Wiggle Simon Pryce, who was one of Gillespie’s groomsman, and Anthony Field who played bagpipes as Watkins entered the ceremony and the couple left.

Anyone who was there that wasn’t aware of the couple’s involvement in the internationally successful childrens entertainment franchise wouldn’t have had to look far for clues.

The couple’s wedding rings were engraved with Watkins’ signature yellow bow which forms part of her costume in the group, as well as being set with nine red rubies – probably in recognition of The Wiggles big red car.

The cake also included a nod to how the couple met. It also included Watkins’ signature bow as well as yellow and purple icing to signify their Wiggles colours.

Other celebrities in attendance include writer and comedian Ben Elton who wrote the lyrics to a song Gillespie performed during the speeches at the reception.

Watkins wore a vintage-inspired Suzanne Harwood gown with a diamond headpiece by Viktoria Novak.

Gillespie wore a suit by Arthur Galan with a tartan sash.

The bridal party were dressed by the same designers.

Gillespie, who was born in Brisbane, spoke sweetly of seeing his bride walk down the aisle.

“Seeing Emma was the most magical moment of my life. Everything else just seemed to melt away,” he said.

The pair won’t have long to enjoy their new life as a married couple. They will both be back on the stage on Tuesday as The Wiggles tour continues its trek around the country.
