A Sydney couple have just got hitched after meeting in a bizarre scenario usually seen in Hollywood romantic comedies – one that involved plenty of hijinks and a rare cottage up for sale.

Bronnie Roberts wasn’t looking for love when she bought a pretty cottage in North Turramurra about three years go.

But that’s exactly what she found, and on Friday she wed the man who sold it to her.

And in a twist you couldn’t make up – she and fiance Mark become Mr and Mrs Husband.

“Of course I will be taking his name,” she told the North Shore Times.

In fact their entire love story is the stuff of fairytales, with lashings of serendipity.

It began when Ms Roberts started looking for a home for herself and her three children.

The single mum had another property in St Ives, where she planned to do a knockdown/rebuild, but when the opportunity to sell came up, she decided to buy an established home.

She saw No. 41 Ellalong Rd, North Turramurra on the internet and it was going to auction that weekend.

“I had never set foot in it, but I had looked at the floorplan and the pictures,” she said. “I decided to buy it.”
