Olympia Valance and fiancé Thomas Bellchambers ‘haven’t really had time to think’ about their engagement and will skip the honeymoon phase to walk down the aisle in 2021
Olympia Valance and Thomas Bellchambers announced their engagement in October.
And on Tuesday, it appears the former Neighbours actress, 27, and the AFL star, 31, will skip on the honeymoon phase to walk down the aisle in 2021.
While it has been an ‘incredible few months’ for the loved-up couple, Olympia told the Herald Sun she and Thomas haven’t really had time to think about their engagement.

‘We haven’t (had an engagement). I don’t think we will, we’ll go straight to a wedding,’ Olympia, who is now back in Melbourne, confessed to the publication.
‘Got engaged, came back, trying to settle in a bit. Had a bit of work to do at the farm (in Daylesford), it was completely overgrown so we’ve just been on our hands and knees doing that. Maybe next year, don’t know yet.’
Thomas popped the question to Olympia while the couple holidayed in Queensland on October 1 – more than a year after meeting on celebrity dating app Raya.
The actress made the sweet announcement by sharing a photo of herself locking lips with her now fiancé to tell fans of the news.

‘Today is a special day. The man of my dreams proposed to me,’ she wrote in the caption. ‘I get to marry my best friend.’
Olympia, who is the younger sister of Holly Candy (née Valance), also shared a photo of the lavish bento box-style spread Thomas prepared for the beachside picnic.
A few days later, she revealed the island was the ‘most special place she had ever visited’ and she had actually ‘cried getting back into the chopper’ as they prepared to jet off.

‘Well, it’s safe to say that @orpheusisland will be a place that Thomas and I will never forget,’ Olympia captioned a picture of herself snuggling up to her beau on Instagram on October 5.
‘This place, with or without getting engaged to my gorgeous fiancé is the most special place I have ever visited in my life. That was just the cherry on top!
‘From the divine staff, the incredible culinary experience, exploring the surrounding reefs and islands, the free-flowing booze, the picnics, the fishing, the crystal clear ocean, the accommodation, the pool, the everything!’
