A British couple hit the jackpot just days before celebrating their wedding. That’s because they received a million pound lottery prize a week before the celebration. Christine Jane and Nick Jane hit the top five tens of the draw in October this year and held the wedding, which had been postponed for two years.

“When I was told I had won a million, I literally fell out of bed. It was a shock,” Christine told the Mirror.

The 50-year-old and 55-year-old bride and groom, respectively, promoted the marriage at the headquarters of a golf club near their city. The couple has been together for two years and together they have six grown-up children. Interestingly, Christine and Nick chose to keep the news a secret until the time of marriage.

“I got married to the man of my dreams and I knew our future was secure. I was so close to telling everyone at the wedding and I don’t know how I kept it a secret but for both of us it was the most incredibly happy moment with all of our close family,” he concluded.
