A newly married Cornish couple discover themselves in the same photo eleven years before they met.

Turns out Aimee Maiden and Nick Wheeler had built sandcastles next to each other on the beach at Mousehole when they were little.

That is even though they lived hundreds of miles apart.

Aimee spotted herself in the background going through some old snaps.

Aimee's mum Michelle told Pirate FM what happened.

She said: "It's a fairy tale.

"For their engagement party about a year ago, Aimee asked his grandparents for photos of Nick when he was young, and when she went to see which photos his grandparents had found, she found this picture and we were in the background.

"It was amazing, I didn't actually see we were in the background to start with, I just saw this picture of these children on the beach, she said mum look beyond that, and I went oh my gosh, blooming heck, I was just shocked."
