THE WIGGLES WEDDING: INSIDE EMMA’S SPECTACULAR BIG DAY
A love story full of music, magic and lots of heart – plus a sword fight, Viking tent and baby goats, too!
It’s a match made in Australian entertainment history! Emma, the Yellow Wiggle, and Lachy, the Purple Wiggle, met and fell in love on set, so it’s no surprise that their wedding day was full of fun, singing and dancing! The day started with Emma’s bridesmaids helping her into her custom couture gown, which took 45 minutes! Lachy added a touch of tartan to his outfit for his Scottish heritage, and then it was time for the ceremony. Blue Wiggle Anthony Field played the bagpipes as Emma walked down the aisle. After a heartfelt ceremony (which included a choreographed sword fight thanks to Emma’s dad), guests were treated to drinks, nibbles and mini goats to play with. Soon enough, everyone was seated inside for a decadent meal, but not without entertainment! Emma danced her way into dinner as Lachy sang his favourite song, “Melt Away” by The Beach Boys. It was magic from start to finish.
