Big Love, Little Fuss with Big Love Elopement

Okay so speaking from absolutely ZERO experience, we know that weddings can be super stressful to organise – just think of all of the wedding movies out there that fall under either comedy or drama where shit goes down (Bridesmaids, Bride Wars, My Big Fat Greek Wedding etc.). The good news is they don’t have to be anything like this! If a big wedding isn’t your life plan and if you like to keep your stress to the bare minimum, then the team at Big Love Elopement are here to help.

Some of you might know them separately, but Jake Hogan and Jessie Walsdorf are a wedding match made in heaven.

Jake runs Jake Hogan Photography, and ensures he does everything (humanly) possible to capture your special day, while the entertaining Jessie from Jessie Belle Marriage Celebrants aims to make you comfortable and laugh while you marry the love of your life.


Embracing a pretty simple business motto, Big Love, Little Fuss, this dynamic duo create a fun, intimate and relaxed elopement experience for couples around Geelong who are looking to keep things low-key, but loved up.

With the promise of a personalised ceremony, and beautiful photos to last you a lifetime, this is for couples who just want to commit to their lover – without all the bells and whistles, without others in your hair asking where the photobooth should be setup, or whether you want a dessert fork set up at the start, and without the need to find a new MC after Uncle Bob had a few too many arvo beers…

It really is big love with little fuss.

If this sounds like the perfect adventure for you (or someone you know), make sure to hit them up, and fast! Due to both being legends and running separate wedding businesses, they currently only offer Sunday-Thursday Elopements.
