I promise, although I’m pregnant right now, I’m going to hold back the tears and try to write this blog post without blubbing like a baby. This is a task in itself for me. If you follow me on my personal twitter (@cassiopoeia85,) you will have noticed I have a habit of reaching out for Kleenex frequently, especially when TV (including Strictly) makes my eyes go all leaky. *inserts example here*
Today’s dance was one of those moments.
On Saturday, it’ll be mine and my husband’s 6th Wedding Anniversary. We’ll be celebrating by renewing our vows at the very same place we got married in front of family and friends. You may be wondering, what does Strictly have to do with renewing your vows? Well, when we got married, our first dance together was to Annie’s Song, by John Denver. Last year when we saw Susanna and Kevin dance their Viennese Waltz to this song in Week 3, it not only made me weep, but made my alpha-male, sports-mad husband go teary-eyed too, bringing back many happy memories of that day.
In 2 days time, we’ll walk down the aisle again to this song, and it’ll no doubt remind us of our happy day 6 years ago. It will also remind us of this Strictly Routine, and the fabulous group routine we saw on the Tour in February.
We loved this dance, not just because of the music, but because Susanna looked graceful and elegant like a swan. The whole feel of the dance was understated and simple whilst being sophisticated and glamourous, just like an old Hollywood Movie. Although Viennese Waltzes can be quite boring, Kevin’s choreography was exciting and had lots of beautifully romantic moments which tugged at our heartstrings and made us get ever so slightly emotional and reach for the Kleenex. *sobs*
Overall it was an amazing performance, which we loved and voted for lots and lots. Here it is just for your Throwback Thursday fix, Susanna and Kevin’s sensational Viennese Waltz. We hope you enjoy it:
We’d love to hear what you thought of that dance. Tweet us @scd_support or comment below. We look forward to hearing from you. We’re off on the hunt for some Glow in the Dark balloons and to do some final ceremony preparations but will be here tonight from 7pm for a chat and quiz. Hope you can join us then.
