Aphrodite made our day so memorable. We chose the elopement package offered and it was just perfect for us. We had the ceremony in Aphrodite’s garden in Crafers and it was so lovely, very romantic and intimate. Aphrodite even organised our photographer Olivia, who also does hair and makeup and did an amazing job😇 Apart from Aphrodite being very professional, she is also a beautiful woman inside and out and genuinely loves being a celebrant and it shows. Thank you for being an important part of our special day🥰 We would highly recommend. Ron and Peta💞3/4/19

Dear Aphrodite, thank you so much for being our amazing celebrant for our wedding in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens in November 2018.   You were just the person for the job! Your calm, in control, organized and mothering nature allowed the day to run perfectly but also keep both myself and Shaun at ease! You are truly an angel.  And the work you do is so very special.  You will never be forgotten by us.  All our love Shaun and Lauren.


As a same sex couple not really in sync with wedding ceremony protocols and procedures, Aphrodite helped us make sense of it all. We live overseas and organized our ceremony to be in Adelaide. Even with those logistics Aphrodite had it all under control. Sensitive to our wish to include special traditions from our different cultures she brought it all together which meant we and our guests had a truly meaningful and memorable ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how professional and classy our celebrant was. We were honored and proud to have had Aphrodite navigate us through this milestone and experience this day with us. JoJo & Rhett Pickering  April 15, 2018

From the first meeting with Aphrodite to the saying of our wedding vows, the level of warmth, professionalism and depth of insight she brought to our wedding day was faultless. Aphrodite created a welcoming atmosphere for our guests, she pre-empted things we had not considered, and was very well prepared at meetings and on the day. She offered many variations of ceremony ideas and ways of sharing about our relationship as a celebration of our love with our guests. If you are searching for a wedding celebrant with excellent attention to detail, personalisation, the ability to improvise that comes only with experience, and bring a light-hearted touch to your wedding, Aphrodite comes with our highest recommendation.  Priscilla Corbell Moore Dec 8, 2017


Aphrodite Anderson is an amazing celebrant. We are very laid back and didn’t want a long ceremony and Aphrodite still made the ceremony one to remember! Thank you for getting the boys organised with rings/music ect! It was comforting to know I could leave everything in your hands without me having to be there. I was so nervous walking into the venue but once you came to greet me and get me ready I was so excited and couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle. Aphrodite is sophisticated, very funny, kind hearted and an absolute dream to work with! You made everything so easy and effortless for us and I couldn’t thank you enough for making our day so perfect! We love you, and will always cherish our time spent with you. Love Jess & Michael Stapleton xx

Aphrodite Anderson stepped in to do our ceremony at very late notice (5 weeks before the big day) and assisted us to pull our ceremony together quickly. She made our ceremony, relaxed and fun and supported our wishes to conduct the ceremony in a way that suited us. We really appreciate everything Aphrodite did to make our ceremony so special. Thank you!  Cate Stanford


My husband and I knew from our first meeting that we wanted Aphrodite Anderson to conduct our Adelaide wedding ceremony. She gave us the freedom to personalise our ceremony and vows so that it would truly represent us as a couple. She is someone who loves love and works hard to ensure that everything runs smoothly.  I wish we were getting married again just so that we could work with Aphrodite again.  Anastasia Mouratidis

The moment we met Aphrodite she was warming, very professional and organised. She has a great deal of experience which showed throughout preparation and on the day of the ceremony. Made us feel at ease and leaving the guest praising her happy vibrant nature. Couldn't ask for better. Your perfect Adelaide Wedding celebrant!

I cannot even begin to describe how happy Adam and I were with the service provided by Aphrodite. Living remote, and dealing predominantly with suppliers via email, Aphrodite was informative, to the point, and responded quickly. She went above and beyond to meet with us the week before the wedding, and the day ran without a hick up. Aphrodite's attention to detail, made all the difference.

Thank you Aphrodite!!! Samantha T.

Aphrodite Anderson - Adelaide Marriage CelebrantThank you for taking the time to consider me as your marriage celebrant. As your Adelaide Greek and French speaking wedding celebrant, I am privileged to have one of the best jobs in the world. My birth name is Aphrodite "meaning Goddess of Love" making it more significant that I now participate in affirming the union of a loving and committed couple.

I lived in the USA for many years where I worked mostly as an Executive Assistant to Senior Managers in high profile companies and medical colleges. The need to liaise with both my colleagues, senior managers and international academics, made me a very confident and professional speaker.

I have travelled through many countries over the years and the time I spent amongst varying cultures has given me a fondness and respect for the differences we all have in our beliefs and values, and naturally the rituals that follow them.

Upon my return to Australia I embarked on a career as a fashion retailer and assistant designer based in Adelaide, South Australia. Since 2008 I have been totally immersed in my profession as a full time marriage celebrant which continues to be the most uplifting and happiest work I could have possibly pursued.
