A British man won more than $1 million in the lottery after a woman let him cut her in line. 

Arron Walshaw, 32, said he's now planning his dream wedding to his fiancee, Ceri Hall, 23, after nabbing the big prize, according to the BBC. But it wouldn't have been possible without "a stroke of luck," he said. 

"I popped in to a nearby shop where me and another lady approached the same cashier," he said. "She must have seen that I was in a rush because she insisted I went before her.

"I don't think I would have been in time to buy my ticket if she hadn't let me go first," he added, saying he'd love to track down the woman who let him go first so he can thank her. 

For now, Walshaw said he will continue to work as a plasterer as he and Hall prepare for their big day.

 “We’ve got a wedding to plan and I want to make it the wedding of Ceri’s dreams," he said.
