Photographer Searches for Mystery Couple After Wedding Photo Goes Viral

Do you know this couple?

— -- Do you know this couple?

Neither does the photographer. But he's on a mission to find them.

Saber Miresmailli was on vacation in London when, caught in a bit of traffic on London Bridge, Miresmailli decided to snap a photo of Tower Bridge.

"I noticed the couple," he said. "At that moment, I did not see anyone from the wedding party or a photographer with the couple, so I took couple of shots. Usually, my pictures are not very good given the fact that I don’t use flash and I don’t stop to compose -- so when we get back after two weeks, I was very surprised to see this one shot turned out so well."

Miresmailli said, "I thought to myself, if it was me getting married, I would have wanted the picture."

So he posted the photo on Facebook and tagged a few friends with the hope of finding the couple and passing them the picture. What happened next, he said, "was crazy."

"I heard about [going} viral stuff on Internet but experiencing it first-hand is a bit overwhelming," he said. "I received more than 2,000 friend requests from perfect strangers and lots of positive and negative emails."

As of this afternoon, almost 230,000 people had shared his Facebook post on the photo.

There's also been a tentative identification of the couple. It's likely their names are Laura and James. If it's the right couple, Miresmailli said, they are on their honeymoon in Bali and have no idea about the photo.

"I bet they will be shocked to find out about their fame," he said.

Miresmailli said he's been overwhelmed by the interest in the photo.

"I just want to give them their picture and go back to work and tend my tomatoes," he said.
