Georgia said that framed photo was also taken to the reception so her beloved mother would be there too.
The blushing bride said she was also mentioned in everyone’s speeches with friends and family paying tribute to her.
‘She was brought up in everyone’s speeches because she was hardly a wallflower! She would have loved to be there,’ she said.

Georgia finished by saying she had a special locket with some of her mother’s ashes in there and picture of her from her father.
‘I had that with a little blue bow pinned into the inside of my dress. So she was actually there with me all day,’ she added.
Belinda Love died from pancreatic cancer in October 2016, a month after her 60th birthday, and just one day after The Bachelorette finale had aired.

Georgia said that she and her fiancé, Lee Elliott, had decided to cancel most of their media commitments the day after the finale.
The pair spent the day with her, not realising it would be her last. Georgia has since done work raising funds with the Pancare Foundation.
Georgia and Lee said ‘I Do’ at the Frogmore Creek Winery, just 20 minutes outside of Hobart’s city centre, followed by an outdoor reception at the Shene Distillery.

The bride stunned in a custom couture gown by Australian designer Jason Grech, while the groom donned a white tuxedo jacket and bow tie by YSG Tailors.
Georgia changed into a fun and flirty dress, also by Jason Grech, for the reception.
It featured a bust with intricate beading detail and a tulle skirt that flowed just past her knee.
