It seems social media is the only way to find lost things these days. In the past couple weeks alone, it’s helped find a submerged newlywed couple and reunite a groom with his lost wedding ring.
Now it has worked its magic again, this time helping a newly engaged Scottish couple find the woman who captured their romantic proposal… in Iceland.
It all started when Michael Kent proposed to Fiona Newlands on a snowy street in Reykjavik just before midnight.
PHOTOGRAPHER’S WARNING TO WEDDING GUESTS GOES VIRAL
Jessica Bowe, a Wisconsin woman who has lived in Iceland for years, was walking home and stopped to take pictures of the snow and the pretty Christmas lights.
That’s when she spotted the couple, and decided to capture the moment Michael got down on one knee. She gave them a few minutes to take in the moment, before going over to them to give them the picture… and that’s when things went wrong.
Michael typed in his email address with shaking hands, and unfortunately he got it wrong, and all three didn’t notice until they got home.

The groom-to-be then took to Facebook and Twitter to find Jessica, while she asked her local newspaper to post the picture on their Instagram page.
It only took a day for them all to get in touch, and just a few days later, they met in person.
As Michael put it in a grateful post after the event, don’t you just “f****** love the internet”?
Jessica added, “Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time.” We can all agree with that.
