The luxury plane was hit by a spell of bad weather when the couple flew from London Oxford to Amsterdam to attend a party at Soho House.
According to reports at least 30 million volts surged into the fuselage after the thunderbolt hit the plane’s nose.
Luckily for the newlyweds, the pair landed safely in Amsterdam with no injuries.
Sources told The Mail that the plane was grounded for nine days in order for the nose to be fixed and safety checks to be made.
A replacement plane was flown out from Stockholm, so the couple could return safely and on schedule.
