An British artist has married the man of her dreams four years after painting his lookalike in a prophetic piece of artwork, according to Daily Mail.

In 2009, the 31-year-old Chloe Mayo, who was single at the time, quickly dashed off an oil painting of her holding hands with a handsome, dark bearded man.

Not thinking anything more of the creation, she left the painting aside.

Chloe later joined an online dating website in a search for love, and began messaging Michael Goeman, 30.

Two months later when the pair first met, Chloe was shocked to find Michael was the spitting image of the man in her painting.

But in fear of putting off her new lover, she hid the uncanny painting under her bed, only revealing it once she had been on more dates with Michael.

Thankfully, Michael was not put off and they continued their relationship for a further 18 months until he proposed during their trip to France.

Three years after they first met, Chloe and Michael married, and the painting now has pride of place in the living room of the couple's home in Worcester Park near Croydon in Surrey.
