Emma Watkins and Lachy Gillespie, aka Yellow Wiggle and Purple Wiggle, have celebrated their big red love at a "bowtiful" wedding in the NSW Southern Highlands.

The couple, who allegedly hid their love from fans for two years, exchanged vows in front of 200 people, including past and present Wiggles members, in Bowral, News Corp Australia reported.

Gillespie and Watkins, who has a DVD titled Emma's Bowtiful Day, were awash with happiness on Saturday.


"Lachy, love, laughter. The best day of my life," Watkins told the Sunday Telegraph, while Gillespie said he was overwhelmed by the sight of his bride.

"Seeing Emma was the most magical moment of my life. Everything else just seemed to melt away."

Watkins, 26, had traded her yellow bow for a crown by Australian milliner Viktoria Novak and her skivvies for a stunning lace embroidered gown by Melbourne designer Suzanne Harward.
