A newly married couple realized they were truly destined to be together when they discovered long-lost photos of themselves from a childhood holiday, where they were inseparable.
Heidi and Ed Savitt, 26, had the shock of their lives when Heidi’s mom told Heidi she had a “holiday romance” with a young boy called Ed during a family vacation in Gumbet, Turkey two decades earlier.
Heidi’s mom rummaged through their attic and discovered holiday photos of the fateful meeting dated July 1997, which left everyone truly stunned.
“I didn’t believe in fate before finding that out but there’s no arguing with it—we’re clearly destined to be together!” Heidi told MailOnline.
Before the amazing discovery, the adorable couple, who now live in London, believed they had met for the first time in 2011 when they were both students at Newcastle University in the UK.
Heidi was studying economics and management, while Ed was in psychology and management.
Ed happened to move into a student dorm Heidi had previously stayed in, and contacted Heidi when he couldn’t figure out how to use the tumble dryer.
It wasn’t long before the pair fell in love.
And five years later, they were engaged.
“From the moment we started dating we were inseparable and knew we were going to be together forever,” Heidi said.
The loved-up couple couldn’t believe they could have wed without discovering the Turkey photos, which show Heidi standing next to an adorable little boy with a blonde bowl-cut.
“When Kay sent me the photo of a little boy called Ed I shrieked, ‘oh my goodness, that’s Ed!’ It was unbelievable.
“We sent it around to all our family and friends and everyone was amazed. The phones didn’t stop ringing and everyone was liking it on Facebook,” Fiona said.
The two families, who have no relationship at all, set off from the United Kingdom at the same time 20 years back and met in the same city in the same country. They became short-term good friends. After many years, they reunited at the same university and became lovers and couples. What are the possibilities?!
Heidi’s mom, Kay, told them they had played together every day for two weeks during the summer vacation.
“I was screaming, it was just unreal. None of us had any idea whatsoever that Heidi and Ed had met before university. But during that two-week holiday, they held hands most of the time.
“Perhaps they just had a subconscious realization they had shared that time together when they met as adults,” she said.
Ed and Heidi had the wedding of dreams at Haddon Hall, a stunning 12th century Derbyshire manor house.
This romantic story sounds like it could have come straight out of a Korean drama!
Congratulations Heidi and Ed—you two are truly fated to be together!
