When we decided on getting married in Cyprus, we didn’t really know where to start. We did some research on Google and came across Stella Virdi’s website so we emailed her to ask for further details. Despite the fact she was on holiday herself, she got back to us very quickly and we immediately got a good feel about her efficiency and personality.
Our wedding was very small, just the two of us, and I was slightly concerned that a wedding so small wouldn’t really be her priority, we were wrong! From the very first correspondence we had with her, she made it clear that our wedding was just as important as a big wedding with multiple guests.
She gave us great advice on everything we needed to do in advance of the big day, including a sample affidavit which ended up saving us quite a lot of money because we were able to create our own and just get them verified by a solicitor.
She arranged to pick us up from our villa in Paphos to submit our wedding licence at the town hall a few days before the wedding and it all went incredibly smoothly – we were in and out within minutes!
On the big day, she had arranged for a fabulous woman to come and do my hair and make up and she personally brought the flowers we had chosen to us and she helped to get me in to my dress which was a wonderful help. She took photos of us so we could share them with people back home and drove us to the ceremony. She was also our witness!
She arranged for a great photographer to attend the ceremony who immediately put us at ease, not an easy task with a photo phobic couple!
We honestly can’t thank Stella Virdi enough for everything she did for us. If you’re after an efficient but incredibly friendly wedding planner who doesn’t leave you hanging waiting for responses to emails, she is your woman! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her and her team to help you with your big day.
I contacted multiple wedding planners in Cyprus. Stella Virdi was FABULOUS from the first minute and that’s how we settled on Paphos as a venue. She listens carefully and fully adapted her recommendations to our wedding style and budget. We found very quickly the perfect venue, cocktail and dinner place, as well as a fab makeup and hair artist, photographer, flowers, live music, and transport company. She even gave us her suggestions for accommodation places as well as restaurants for our holidays in Cyprus after the wedding! Needless to say, she also smoothly navigated through all the paperwork required to formalize our union.
Throughout the wedding day she made sure everything ran smoothly while keeping the fun. Moreover, Stella helped me before the wedding day with the last minute unexpected hurdles such as fixing the length of my dress with a tailor and even getting to the hospital on time to prevent a potential sty on my eye! Super professional in her budgeting (with pricing options for every budget and no hidden fees). Always ready to help us both from the distance (we planned from abroad) and on the ground! Stella pulled of a wedding day beyond our best dreams!!! We could not be more grateful!
We are just so happy with the work of everyone on the team! Also special shoutout for the tailor, Maria (the makeup/hair artist), the violinist (never got to thank her but she was soooo good.
The flowers where wonderful and exactly as I dreamt too.
Plus Judy was so nice and professional with the Taxi service.
Thank you very much for giving us the wedding of our dreams.
“Stella Virdi has all the contacts you will need. Okay, I’m sure there are other Wedding Planners, all of whom would do an adequate job for you, but would you have as much fun in Cyprus as you will with Stella.
Stella thought we were quirky but only because we could relax with Stella and have a laugh with her.
“Indian weddings are large multi-day affairs. Malhar and I were looking for something simple and decided at the last minute (okay, a week in advance) to elope! I had spoken to Stella Virdi from Exclusive Weddings, months ago while exploring venues for having a big fat Indian wedding. When looking for an elopement, I immediately reached out to her and I was surprised she remembered me even after so many months had elapsed.
We were in Cyprus for less than 24 hours and having her there made the process so effortless. She was readily available on the phone or email throughout. She got the wedding date booked for us and spoke with the registrar in advance to make sure that my fiance could sign his single certificate while in Cyprus! On the day of, she drove us to the registrar’s office to go through the formalities and even swung by the florist to get us a beautiful bouquet of flowers – they added that special wow to our pictures that I never could have thought of! She booked our wedding photographer who was absolutely wonderful and Stella made sure I got to show case my beautiful saree in the pictures. I had never tied a saree on my own before – Stella offered to help – that saree would not have been possible without her there! All in all, Stella felt more like a friend/family member than a wedding planner. I can’t stress how glad I am we asked her to help!”
Also, we haven’t announced our wedding to everyone yet. We will add a message on the registrar’s facebook later in the summer once we make our news public!
Where do I start? Stella Virdi really is an amazing women! From the moment I spoke to her I knew that she was the planner for us, nothing was too much trouble and communication was first class! From the very first email to lacing my dress up on the big day, Stella really made our day as perfect as we hoped! My children loved her and my son still talks about Stella now, we will always remember how kind you was to our daughter and how caring You was to her needs!
Anyone thinking of booking Exclusive weddings, you won’t be disappointed!!
