Georgia Love changes wedding destination from Italy to Tasmania


The Bachelorette’s Georgia Love plans Tasmanian nuptials after her dream wedding in Italy ruined by COVID-19

Every girl dreams about their perfect wedding and former Bachelorette Georgia Love is no different. 

The 31-year-old announced her engagement to Lee Elliot, 38, last year and they were planning a dream wedding in Italy. 

But on Thursday, Georgia told the Ben Rob & Robbo show that the couple have been forced to change the location of their wedding to Tasmania due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘We were planning on a wedding for Italy next year so in 2021,’ she said. 

‘But we’ve gone back on those plans, so we figured there’s just too many “what-ifs” in the world at the moment.’ 

The television presenter added that even if international travel opens the couple still plan to hold their nuptials in Georgia’s home state of Tasmania instead.

‘Even if Italy is fine by then we do not want to put it on our family and friends that they have to find the money to do so in such uncertain times with people losing their jobs,’ she added.  

At this stage, the wedding is still set to go ahead in 2021.  

And, speaking to Who Magazine earlier this month, Georgia admitted that she had already started trying on dresses before the pandemic hit.

‘I’d started dress shopping. I was actually in a bridal boutique when my sister read out on her phone that Scott Morrison was holding a press conference announcing that all restaurants were shutting down,’ she said. 

‘I thought, “Oh s**t.” And also, “Um, can you concentrate on me in the beautiful white dress?”’ 

Georgia chose Lee in the finale of The Bachelorette in 2016 and the pair announced their engagement in 2019.
