One couple has been engaged for nine years but after a £12,000 bingo win, their dream wedding can come true.

Luke Ferendon and Sue Garland have been together for 11 years and after a long engagement they will be married at the Oaklands Hotel on Saturday, July 13.

Luke wanted to be able to give Sue the wedding she always wanted and after a £12,164 in a Gala Bingo game from a £1 stake.

Luke, 38, said: "It might not sound like a lot of money to some people but it's enough to make our dream come true."

Sue, 42, said: "Every year we thought we would do it but there was always something to pay for.
"This will change our lives forever."

They typically don’t play the Party Xtra XL game but this time Luke had a couple of pounds to spare.
He said: "I had never even considered that we might win and when I crossed off the last number, I was so gobsmacked that I just went totally numb.

"Luckily, Sue was there to press the button and shout out – she was virtually hysterical."

Luke initially planned to use the cash to purchase a truck for his business.

He said: "I had always wanted that truck but I looked at the money on the table and all of a sudden it didn't seem so important anymore.

"Marrying Sue is all I've wanted to do for the last nine years and it is everything to me.

"Finally I had the money to do it and do it the right way so I decided that was exactly what I was going to do."

Sue said: "We had arranged to go and see the truck the next day and suddenly he just said 'I'm going to put it back in the bank and we're going to get married.

"I realised it was finally going to happen. It was an emotional moment for both of us."
