Strictly Come Dancing star Graziano Di Prima was meant to be getting married today – but the coronavirus forced his big day to be cancelled.
The 26-year-old professional dancer was set to walk down the aisle to exchange vows with the love of his life, Giada Lini.
Instead, the star has shared a heartfelt public love note to Giada as the pair come to terms with their special day being postponed until next summer.
Taking to Instagram on Friday, he shared a series of their best loved-up snaps alongside an emotional message.
He gushed: “Today would have been the most important Day of our life, our WEDDING…”
Italian hunk Graziano revealed they are still planning to get hitched, but plans are on hold until next year.
He added: “Of course with this worldwide situation we decided to postpone our dream to next summer…
“But AMORE this day will arrive soon, and you know how much i LOVE YOU and how much i want you beside me,” he sweetly said about his girlfriend of five years.
Showing his love for the bride-to-be, he said she’ll be his “princess” forever when they eventually tie the knot.
“When this day will come, you will be my PRINCESS FOREVER!!! Ti amo @giada.lini”
️Similarly, Showdance Latin world champion finalist Giada shared the devastating news on her Instagram as she is “desperate” to become his wife.
Just as gutted as her fiancé, she penned: “Today would have been our wedding day!!!
“Unfortunately we cannot celebrate the way we desire, so we decided to postpone to next year… Our love is very strong so we can easily wait another year!!! Can’t wait to be your future wife @grazianodiprim.️”
The couple announced their engagement last year after a night of dancing as they performed in production Burn the Floor.
He popped the question to his then-girlfriend live on stage, with Giada excitedly accepting his proposal.
They have been inseparable since they began dating in 2015, and we couldn’t be happier for them!
