Our Wonderful Paphos Castle Wedding Day.


We have now arrived back home in rainy Northern Ireland Andy my husband and I wanted to let you know how that thankful we are for all that you did for is before and on our big day.

 

We both knew as soon as we got engaged on 02 Jul 2016 that we wanted to get married a year later on the 03 Jul 2017, we didn’t really know where to start. We did some research and a friend of mine had got married in Cyprus a few years early and she told us about Stella Virdi  and gave us her email address, so we emailed her to ask for further details. She got back to us very quickly and we immediately got a good feel about her efficiency and personality, and had our castle wedding booked within a few days.

 

Our wedding was very small, just the two of us, and 11 guests and I was slightly concerned that a wedding so small wouldn’t really be her priority, I was so 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.

All the planning was so easy, we just talked on WhatsApp and we sent her pics of what we wanted and that’s exactly what we got. 

She gave us great advice on everything we needed to do in advance of the big day, including a sample affidavit which we just needed to print and get signed by our solicitor.

She arranged to pick us up from our hotel in Paphos to go to the town hall to get all our paper work in order a week before the wedding and it all went incredibly smoothly – we were in and out within minutes! She took us to our venue and the restaurant to go through all the details.

 On the big day, she had arranged for Maria who was amazing, (and had done my nails for me the day before) to come and do my hair and make up as well as my bridesmaid  (my 11 year old daughter) and 4 other guests. Stella 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 helped to dress my youngest daughter who cried at every dress fitting but Stella kept her at ease and also did her hair for me. Sherie. (Stella’s daughter) did all the décor in the castle and it looked amazing and she also set up the restaurant tables which also looked amazing.

 She arranged for a great photographer Andrzej who photographed me getting into my dress and the ceremony and then took his time talking photos inside the castle and outside, he also did some sunset pics which he took the 2 of us away in his car where it was quite and peaceful and it was all about the 2 of us which was lovely. 

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

Thanks so much Stella and team

Eloping To Cyprus

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.

A Wedding Beyond Our Dreams

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.
