A pair of British newlyweds may have a better appreciation for the old adage “it’s a small, small world.”

According to the Telegraph, Aimee Maiden, 25, and Nick Wheeler, 26, were perusing through some old photographs and discovered that as children they were photographed together while playing on the same beach — 11 years before they met.


The photo was snapped by Wheeler’s grandfather. The image shows Wheeler in the foreground. Behind and to the left of Wheeler is Maiden with her mom, dad and sister.

The two didn’t play together that day in 1994. They didn’t even speak to each other. But 11 years later they “officially” met and fell in love.

The couple recently married after becoming engaged last year.
