We're Swooning Over the Ultra-Romantic Way Lee Elliott Proposed to Georgia Love
Georgia Love and Lee Elliott are engaged! The couple announced the news via their respective Instagram accounts on Sunday evening.
They were on a boat trip along the Hawkesbury River during a visit to Sydney for Georgia's 31st birthday when Lee got down on one knee. Georgia posted a picture of the pair embracing with the caption "If you're not busy for the next 50 or 60 years..." 💍 #YES!!", Lee shared a similar picture writing, "I liked it so I put a ring on it 💍 #feyonce".
The ring Lee used to pop the question was designed by Saphira Diamonds, which revealed in an Instagram post that the ring is a "round brilliant Solitaire floating above a micropavé band."
Not only was the ring picture perfect, but the way Lee proposed also has us swooning. Turns out, the location he chose for the big moment has a beautifully sentimental significance: it's the same boat they had their first ever date on.
As Georgia giddily announced in an Instagram post, "if you think you recognise the boat, you're right. It's the very same one we had our first date on 😭 @leeroyelliott, my fiancé, you absolutely outdid yourself with everything about this incredible surprise weekend. I love you so much and can't wait to marry you!!!!!!"
It seems the proposal was perfect timing for the couple, who had just recently celebrated their three year anniversary. Of course, plenty of fellow Bachelor stars congratulated the loved-up pair through Instagram comments, including Tim Robards, Alex Nation and Georgia's own former suitors Jake Ellis and Cam Cranley. One of Australia's favourite couples, Georgia and Lee fall in love on The Bachelorette in 2016 and we've followed their journey ever since. So it goes without saying we can't wait to watch them tie the knot!
