Elope at The Woods, Ocean Grove

Say hello to our latest venue collab, that you realllllly need to know about…

The Woods, Ocean Grove.

Tucked away in tranquil bushland, Steph and Jason’s incredible property offers stylish and relaxed accommodation in central Ocean Grove.

Set underneath the 100 year-old gum trees, you’ll breathe in the beautifully landscaped garden which stands alongside the outdoor kitchen and BBQ, tennis court, firepit, pizza oven and golfing green. Pour yourself a drink post-ceremony and you’ll be laughing along with the kookaburras and cockatoos as the sun sets. Pretty farqqin epic if you ask me!

Steph and Jason’s bush accommodation retreat is only 5-10 minutes drive to Ocean Grove’s shopping strip, cafes, restaurants, wineries + beach. They are located 1.5 hours from Melbourne and 30mins from Geelong.

Sounds rad? Let’s lock it in – and we can help you organise it all. We will check whether the venue is available (and our team is available) for your date, and then once it’s all good to go, you just have two invoices to pay. One from Big Love Elopements (celebrant and photographer), and one from The Woods. Simples!

We aim to make our experiences as simple and as beautiful as possible. We KNOW you’re going to love The Woods.

Please note that The Woods is not able to be booked through the busy summer period. If you’ve been in Ocean Grove during the summer school holidays, you know why!! Any booking requests are subject to venue availability.
