A British man and a Spanish woman rediscovered their romance and tied the knot, after a lost love letter had kept them apart for more than 10 years.
Carmen Ruiz-Perez was a foreign student in her 20s visiting the UK when she fell in love with Steve Smith 17 years ago.
They dated for a year and got engaged, but circumstances eventually drove the pair apart—that is, until Ruiz-Perez's mother renovated her fireplace.
The builders uncovered a letter that Smith had sent to Ruiz-Perez's mother's house just a couple of years after their breakup. It was a plea for them to rekindle their romance, but it had fallen behind the fireplace a decade earlier before Ruiz-Perez knew of its existence.
And now, the inspirational story has a happy ending. After finding the letter, Ruiz-Perez called her old boyfriend and the two met up again, finding their love was still strong. The couple married in July.
"When we met again it was like a film. We ran across the airport into each other's arms," Smith told the BBC.
"I never got married and now I'm marrying the man I have always loved," Ruiz-Perez added.
This love story was found in an internet inspirational website and just wanted to share.
