Woman returns wedding tape couple has never seen

A TOOWOOMBA couple has been reunited with their wedding video after Michelle Wilson came across it at Cash Converters.

Michelle Wilson purchased a video recorder, which came with some blank discs, in Toowoomba in May.

But earlier in the week she realised one of the discs wasn't blank - it had a wedding video on it.

She put a call out on Facebook to see if anyone recognised the couple and The Chronicle also ran a story about the search.

Luckily Robert Middleton is an avid reader of The Chronicle and was pleasantly surprised to come across he and his wife's faces in the newspaper.

He showed his wife Maralyn who was "gobsmacked."

"I just couldn't believe it. We weren't expecting this at all, so to see our faces staring back at us was a real shock," she said.

"We had a family friend take the video and he told us it didn't come out so great so we never even saw it.

"It is so lovely that Michelle went to all this trouble to get it back to us. We really appreciate it."

Ms Wilson met Mrs Middleton at her workplace BIG4 Toowoomba Holiday Park to give her the video.

"I'm glad I could return it to the owners because I know if I ever get married these are the memories I would want," she said.
