A couple whose wedding got all thwarted in Spain due to coronavirus have been given the biggest surprise of their lives as their workplace organized one for them without them having to pay a dime.

Lisa Sellens and Shane White have both been working hard at Woodland House care home to save up £5,000 for their wedding on Monday, June 22.

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.

To initiate the wedding plan, Lisa was taken away to a resident 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.
