Is it fate or just coincidence? In the days leading up to their wedding, British newlyweds Aimee Maiden and Nick Wheeler unearthed a shocking childhood photo that proves their paths crossed 11 years before they officially met in college.
The 1994 snapshot shows the teacher and her soldier husband playing in the sand at Mousehole beach, Cornwall. They didn't speak but they did spend the entire day building sand castles together.
What makes the photo even more baffling is that they lived hundreds of miles apart when they were kids. "I was brought up in Mousehole, Nick and his family didn't even live in Cornwall at the time. "He and his family were down on holiday from Kent and didn't move down permanently to Newlyn until a year later," the bride tells The Telegraph.
In an eerie twist, they ended up getting married at Gulval Church in Mousehole, which is located just a minute's walk away from where the photo was taken.
