This woman asked a stranger to a wedding and they ended up married

So, they say love can be found in the most unlikely of places.

Whether it's a chance encounter in a bar you were dragged to against your will, or an old friend you suddenly began to look at differently, romance can come crashing into your life when you least expect it.

And this is something one lucky couple know all too well.

This modern day fairytale began back in 2014 when Llia Apostolou took to Twitter in an attempt to find a date to bring to her sister's wedding.

In a bold move, Llia put out a call for any eligible bachelors who would be willing to attend a wedding with a complete stranger, and to her surprise, she got the response she was looking for.

Just minutes after the tweet was posted, Phil Gibson, a man completely unknown to Llia, offered himself for the role.

The pair then engaged in some back and forth flirtatious banter with Llia even saying, “See you at the alter” – and she wasn't lying.

Three years later, the couple actually did meet at the alter when they tied the knot at their own wedding.

What's more, Phil didn't actually attend Llia's sister's wedding, but the pair did meet up a week later after hitting it off on Twitter.

We're not crying, you are!
