UK Man Plans Dream Wedding After Lotto Win

Posted on September 19th, 2008 by Kori Ellis in News No Comments

It’s always great to hear wedding bells ringing for couples who have gone through rough times.

Wedding Champagne ToastFather of four, Rhys Ap Dafydd has been engaged to his fiancee Elaine Griffiths for two years. However, financial troubles caused the couple to cancel their wedding plans previously because he had been laid off from work.

The couple from Machynlleth, England endured the hard times together and now they have lucked their way into a dream wedding. Rhys purchased a Lotto scratchcard on his lunch hour from work last week and he won the big prize – £1,000 every week for a year!

Rhys told the press, “Winning this amount of money and knowing that we will have this every week for the next year is amazing and has lifted the pressure off our family so much. Since getting engaged we have been desperately trying to get married, but the money just wasn’t there to do it. When I first found out I had hit the jackpot I couldn’t believe it. We decided we wanted to get married as soon as possible and we have already booked our dream wedding for 10 weeks’ time.”

Good luck to the happy couple!
