Over the weekend, the newlyweds confirmed their wonderful wedding news through a statement.
"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," their rep said.
Simply stunning! Emma wore a vintage princess gown while Lachy looked dapper in a classic suit.
The musical stars said "I do" in front of 200 close friends and family.
Emma, 26, looked radiant in an elegant ivory vintage-meets contemporary gown by Australian designer Suzanne Harward. The Wiggles beauty completed the look with a diamond headpiece by milliner Viktoria Novak.
Lachy, 29, gave a node to his Scottish heritage by donning a tartan sash across his suit. The purple frontman of the children's group included his fellow band members on the special day, with fellow red Wiggle Simon Pryce one of his six groomsmen.
Blue Wiggle Anthony Field gave his lungs a work-out joining the bagpipers, who were made up of friends from Lachy's army days. The group provided the soundtrack as Emma walked down the aisle, and again when the bridal party left the ceremony.
In a beautiful touch, the duo'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.

Speaking of his breathtaking 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."
At the reception, guests were treated to an array of performances including a poem, which was written special guest Ben Elton and read out by Lachy.
Following a delicious dinner, guests danced to live music from The John Field 10 piece band. Later in the evening, original red Wiggle Murray Cook sung a few tunes as did the groom.
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.
Speaking to the Telegraph's Confidential about the proposal, the couple revealed it took place by Lavender Bay on Sydney Harbour with Lachy reading a sweet poem before getting down on one knee.
But it didn't all go to plan! "We thought we had picked a quiet location... I was quite emotional, I was crying as I read the poem and just as I got down on one knee a lady walked past with her little baby... she let out a massive gasp," Lachy explained.

Shortly after they let the world know about their wedding plans, Emma took to Instagram to express her utter joy. "The most beautiful thing... Lachy Gillespie (Lachy Wiggle) asked me to marry him! YES of course xx," she wrote.
Despite being together for two years, the duo decided to keep their romance under wraps in a bid to prevent putting the supergroup in jeopardy. However after realising they were in it for the long haul, they finally went public with their love.
And we're so happy they did! Congratulations to the newlyweds, wishing you many years of happiness.
