Johannesburg Marriage Officer
Johannesburg Marriage Officer, Ephimia Christofides, grew up in a Greek Orthodox home and went to a Catholic school. This formed the foundation of her beliefs and values. After school, at the age of 17, she wasn’t sure of the career path she would choose so she decided to attend a Bible College part-time and expand her spiritual knowledge while working. She discovered her passion for people and her spiritual gifts as a person.
She often found that people were drawn to telling her their problems and she invested time and emotions on advising with the skills she had acquired from Bible College. As time passed, she had a deeper desire to get involved in a Ministry. She had the opportunity to affiliate herself with a Ministry and was afforded the chance to be ordained as a Reverend and as a Marriage Officer after series of exams through Home Affairs.
She offers her services as a Marriage Officer but also conducts Christenings, Baptisms, Baby Dedications, Funerals and Memorials. She is based in Northcliff, Gauteng but will travel if needed to make your special day…………a memorable one. Ephimia believes that we as human beings all strive for a greater understanding of life and are designed to believe and have hope in a Higher Being. She respects all religions and denominations. Each ceremony and service that she does, she sees as a special occasion for each individual.

She is ordained and able to conduct Heterosexual Marriages as well as Same-Sex Marriages (Civil Unions). She sees both these types of Marriages, as equal and believes in making every moment for the couple special and an experience that they will treasure for this lifetime.
