MOUSEHOLE, Cornwall — Talk about fate.
A married British couple who believed they had first met in 2005 was shocked when they found an old family photo that showed them together as children in 1994.
According to The Telegraph, Aimee Maiden and her husband, Nick Wheeler, had no idea they had once played together as children on a beach in tiny Mousehole, Cornwall. Maiden’s family lived in the town, but Wheeler and his parents lived hundreds of miles away and were just visiting on vacation.
Last year, the couple was flipping through pictures from Wheeler’s childhood when Maiden was stunned to see her five-year-old self in one image.
The couple finally got married last week. The ceremony was held at Gulval Church — less than a mile from the beach where the photo was taken.
