Celebrant + Photographer
Geelong Elopement Specialists
Yo! Hi! Heyyyyyy!
We are Jake and Jessie – your friendly neighbourhood celebrant and photographer. We have teamed up to create a fun, intimate and relaxed elopement experience for Geelong couples looking to keep things low key and loved up. We offer our elopement package from Monday through to Thursday throughout the year.
We keep things simple round here – Jessie makes the ceremony and Jake makes the memories. Woohoo!
If you’re looking for a no fuss way to celebrate your Big Love, drop us a line below!
Fun. Vibrant. Creative.
Small in height but certainly makes up for it in voluminous hair, Jessie will bring all the good vibes and relaxed feels to your day. She has a knack of putting everyone at ease, make your love story sound like it came straight out of a Disney movie and do it all with a smile on her face and a laugh at the ready.
Chilled. Tall. Very Tall.
Believer of love. Lover of celebrations. Photographer of good vibes. I think my style is best summarised by this comment from one of my past couples: “You know, Jake, for a tall bearded redhead, we really didn’t notice you running around snapping that much. Thanks for making things so comfortable and so easy.”

“This Duo is dynamic!”
These two made our eloping dreams come true! We both never wanted any fuss and thought big weddings were overrated therefore Big Love Elopements made perfect sense. Leading up to the day we had some personal setbacks which they both took it in their stride and made sure there was nothing to worry about. Then on the day it was honestly so magical and everything ran so smoothly! Jake knew exactly how to deal with a camera shy couple and Jess knew exactly what words to say to get us laughing/crying. This duo is dynamic and we highly recommend for couples who just want their day to be about the love not the pressure xx

“The best day of our lives”
We love Jessie and Jake! We were planning a big wedding and it just didn’t feel right. As soon as we saw our fav celebrant and photographer come together in the this amazing venture we just knew that this is meant to be! The whole process was a dream and so straightforward. They made us feel so special and happy the whole day. It truly was the best day of our lives and it’s all because of these two amazing beautiful people!!!!! We cannot recommend them enough.
Jessie portrayed our love story in the most special and incredible way. As soon as we met Jessie and Jake it felt like we were old friends.
Jake is super chill and makes taking portraits super easy.
The whole process was so stress free and just the best! I cannot say enough about these two amazing people.
