On their two year anniversary no less.

By: Alex Lilly

They met and fell in love on The Bachelorette in 2016, but now, Georgia Love and Lee Elliot are taking the next big step in their relationship.

The couple are taking the plunge and shacking up together, moving to their own love nest in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond.

Lee shared a snap of the keys to their new place on his Instagram story.

Georgia, who was previously a St Kilda resident posted on Instagram, "One more day as a St Kilda resident. I will miss my rooftop terrace and being a 5 minute walk from the beach but I won't miss the smell of weed and 3-day-old deep fried chicken oil every time I open my front door. See ya soon Richmond!"

Ever the romantic, Lee posted a sweet throwback to the moment he confessed his true feelings for Georgia in Singapore.

"2 years to the day that I first told you that I loved you in the @marinabaysands pool overlooking all of Singapore @georgiealove So I could not be more excited that today will mark yet another milestone as we move in to our very own home together! Here's to never having to say goodbye again, only goodnight."

It's been an emotional year for Georgia who, in July, bid farewell to her family home.

The Network Ten journalist posted a heartbreaking photo of an empty room to her Instagram account saying, "Sitting in the place Mum's bed used to be as I try to bring myself to hand over the keys and walk out of our family home for the last time. The hole in my heart hasn't felt this big for a while 😪 To the new owners, I hope you love and cherish this home as much as we did and fill it with more beautiful, happy memories, and hopefully a lot less sad ones. Now on to the next chapter..."

Just days after she picked Lee in the 2016 Bachelorette finale, Georgia's 60-year-old mother Belinda passed away from pancreatic cancer. Georgia recalls how Lee spent their second night as a public couple holding her as she "screamed and shook for hours and hours and hours."

Speaking to to Stacey June and Kristie Mercer on the Thinkergirls Pod Channel, Georgia said, "He messaged everybody I knew that day to say 'Hi I'm Lee, I'm Georgia's boyfriend, I'm just letting you know that this thing has happened."
