- Lisa Sellens and Shane White could not have their dream wedding in Spain because of the Covid-19 outbreak
- Distraught and slightly angered, Lisa told her co-workers what she has been dealing with and they decided to help out
- Without informing her and her partner, they planned out a private wedding for them, one which they did not have to pay anything for
A couple whose wedding got all thwarted in Spain due to coronavirus have been given the biggest surprise of their lives as their workplace organised one for them without having to pay a cent.
Lisa Sellens and Shane White had both been working hard at Woodland House care home to save up £5k (R107k) for their wedding on Monday, 22 June.
After Lisa told some of her colleagues at work how the pandemic affected her wedding, they planned to give her one without informing her of their decision, Daily Mail reports.
Briefly.co.za learned that during the wedding ceremony, all the 20 happy guests were masked as people played different roles for the bride and groom.
To initiate the wedding plan, Lisa was taken away to a resident's room where her wedding dress was waiting for her.
The wedding plan was quick and sharp as events followed after each other in chronological order. They even had a three-tiered wedding cake for the ceremony.
“I had no idea they'd all dressed up for our wedding. I felt a bit silly afterwards. It was so kind of them and everyone had gone to so much trouble. They'd even had a full rehearsal without me or Shane noticing anything,” the bride said.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the photos of triplet sisters marrying triplet brothers in Nigeria went viral.
Pictures of the wedding surfaced on the internet on Sunday, June 7, as the name of the brothers were given as Kenechukwu, Chinedu, and Chukwuebuka.
The sisters’ names, according to the same media, are Okwuoma, Dumalu and Chinwe. It was gathered that the wedding ceremony which occurred on the same day was attended by close family members and friends.
