A keyring led to wedding bells for Fleetwood couple Michael Shaw and Amy Lycett

When Michael Shaw spotted a photograph of Amy Lycett on a keyring, he knew he had to meet her.

The keyring belonged to his friend and Amy’s brother Joe and they were both completing RAF training at the time.
Amy, a midwife, said: “The key ring was hanging in my brother’s locker and had a photo on it of me, my brother and sister and he made comment that he wanted to meet me. Photos: http://www.blackpoolphotographer.co.uk

At the end of 2015 Mike came to Blackpool for a night out with Joe and I had also gone out that night with one of my bridesmaids, my best friend, Laura.There was an instant connection, I had such a good feeling about it.
