A Blackpool YouTube couple have had their “magical dream wedding come true” after tying the knot at one of the resort’s biggest attractions.
Emma and Shane, who had been waiting to get married during the pandemic, finally became husband and wife on Monday July 12 and had their dream wedding at the Pleasure Beach.
The Youtubers shared their big day by vlogging everything from start to finish for their channel ‘Gotta Go Orlando’ but also to keep as memory of the special moments they shared with each other.

The fairy tale theme park wedding began at the Boulevard Hotel in Blackpool where they were surprised by family and friends with a Disney themed ceremony room.
Decorated with flower petals, 5ft roses, a Disney themed cake and aisle, the couple were set to say their vows and exchange rings.
When being walked down the aisle by her dad, Emma remembers that time as the most special moment of the day seeing her future husband waiting for her in a room decorated exactly how the pair could only have dreamed of.
“I’ll never forget that moment,” Emma said. “Just to see Shane standing there with his suit was so emotional, the feelings then were magical.
“It was a moment that lasted a few seconds but will last a lifetime.”
Groom Shane also shared tears of joy as he watched his future wife walk towards him down the aisle.
He said: “She was so beautiful.
“The moment I turned around I just started crying thinking this is my beautiful wife.”
After the couple said their ‘I do’s’ they hopped into a traditional horse and carriage as they were taken up the Promenade and back to the Pleasure Beach.
Shane and Emma then went inside the theme park where they spent the day on rides and taking pictures around the park in their extravagant wedding outfits.
Emma’s glittery gown caught the eye of many passers-by who stopped to congratulate the newlyweds.
“We had people shouting from rides ‘congratulations you look beautiful’,” Emma said.
“We had little kids coming up to us wanting to look at my dress, wanting to come and see it up close.
“I felt like a princess.”
Due to Covid restrictions on weddings, Emma and Shane weren’t able to have their first dance inside the hotel and so had to come up with a way to safely do so.
The happy couple took to the dancefloor outdoors on the Comedy Carpet outside the Blackpool Tower where they danced to Van Morrison’s ‘Have I told you lately’.
Dancing out in the open proved to be one of the most beautiful moments for Shane and Emma.
“It was perfect, “ Emma said. “Even though we were getting photographs taken, it was just the two of us.
“There was nobody on the Comedy Carpet, everyone was around sitting on benches and at the Tower but nobody actually came on the Comedy Carpet- it was like they knew.
“It was another moment frozen in time, it was amazing.”
The newlyweds also went up and down the Promenade on the trams, up the Blackpool Tower and went to visit Pasaje Del Terror.
Now, they’re getting ready for their honeymoon and big move to Orlando where they hope to relocate there as husband and wife.
Emma said: “It’s the start of our next big adventure.
“We just can’t stop saying husband and wife to each other.
“It’s just the best feeling to be newlyweds.”
Emma and Shane have thanked their family and friends for helping to make their dreams come true as well as the Blackpool Tower, Pleasure beach and their dedicated photographer Sommerside Photography.
