I just love being a Marriage celebrant especially when I receive such beautiful letters from past clients.

"A lovely Adelaide Marriage Celebrant married us and her name is Aphrodite Anderson! We didn’t know what to expect when it came to choosing our Adelaide Wedding celebrant, but any expectations were certainly exceeded with Aphrodite. Communication was always warm, open and friendly, and she made all formalities seem simple."

Stately, elegant and romantic, but most of all Sissy & Jolley had so much fun on their wedding day at Carrick Hill...a stunning wedding venue for Adelaide Celebrants.  The bride arrived by horse and carriage and the entrance could not have been more grand!

 

October 22, 2016- I had the privilege of marrying the gorgeous Anastasia and her beloved David at a most elegant but relaxed ceremony at Hendon Studios in Bowden.  The bride being half Greek chose me as her Greek Adelaide Celebrant and I was absolutely thrilled to be their  Celebrant. They gave me such a wonderful review too...

My husband and I knew from our first meeting that we wanted Aphrodite to conduct our 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.

From the first meeting with our Adelaide Celebrant, Aphrodite Anderson, to the saying of our wedding vows, the level of warmth, professionalism and depth of insight she brought to our wedding day was faultless.

Bexi & George are soul mates who luckily met at work. Their  friendship, tenderness, and love they share was clear to see on their wedding day. George was overwhelmed with emotions when he saw his Bexi walking toward him.  Raw emotions with tears and laughter were openly expressed in the most beautiful way. It was a cold, windy winter’s day but the sun shone upon George and Bexi’s nuptials, incorporating a contemporary version of Orthodox traditions – and followed by a spectacular celebration.  They were happy to find their Adelaide Greek Celebrant who was able to conduct their ceremony in both languages.

I was excited to be conducting a wedding ceremony for Amy because her birth name was "Aphroditi" spelled slightly differently to mine. So there were two Goddesses of Love present on this special day. I also enjoyed the inclusion of the Greek symbolic "stefana" and wine ceremony as well as welcoming the guests both in Greek and English. A truly memorable day for me.
