Wrong number turns out to be Mr Right
Wednesday 12 December 2012
Normally when someone dials the wrong number, both parties are keen to put the phone down as quickly as possible. But for one newlywed couple, it was the start of a blossoming romance.
Elizabeth Bennett and Brian Woodward got married at St Peter's Church in Ickburgh, Norfolk, last weekend, nine years after a chance phone call. The new Mrs Woodward, 25, told the BBC that her husband was "really rude" when they spoke for the first time as he was the worse for wear and "didn't know what he was doing".
But Mr Woodward, 26, made it up to her the following day by apologising. "A couple of weeks later he turned up at Thetford train station and hasn't been away since," she said. Mr Woodward, from Leamington Spa, popped the question in 2008. Bridesmaid Hannah Hamilton said Saturday's wedding was "filled with happiness and love".
