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!!
From start to finish the service Stella Virdi provided was amazing.
Stella was recommended to me by one of my customers and from the first email I instantly felt at ease and knew Stella was the right person to help plan our special day.
We flew to Cyprus in 2014 still not having any idea of a venue. Stella picked us up from our hotel, (it was lovely to finally meet her after all the emails) and spent the whole day taking us to lots of different venues that we had shortlisted. She also took us to Love Island Cakes for a tasting session and offered to take me to the florist and hairdressers if I felt I needed to meet them.
We decided to marry at Minthis Hills (Stellas recommendation when I originally told her what kind of wedding I wanted) and throughout the whole booking process and year of planning Stella never let me down. Instant replies to emails, spreadsheets detailing everything clearly made and just having absolutely everything under control.
As if Stella hadn’t done enough for us, on the morning of our wedding, 30th May 2015, we woke to rain, and not just showers, pouring rain! Unfortunately due to the rain we couldn’t get married outside where originally planned. Well, within under one hour Stella had the whole thing rearranged. She managed to get us a church for that afternoon, arrange a singer, change all transport and flowers and basically solve every problem that had confronted us. AMAZING! If it wasn’t for Stella I don’t think we would have ended up getting married on that day as there was no other option.
So if that isn’t enough to make you realise that Stella is the best wedding planner in Cyprus I don’t know what is. Not only is she fabulous at what she does, she is a lovely, kind hearted lady who constantly put me and my other half at ease. Nothing was too much trouble, at any time.
We will be back to Paphos next May to celebrate our first anniversary, hopefully without the rain this time, and cannot wait to meet up with Stella again.
We first heard about Stella from Exclusive weddings Cyprus from a colleague who had been out in Cyprus at one of her weddings, and getting in touch with her was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. From our initial e-mail making contact she was able to establish exactly the kind of wedding we were envisioning, and was able to recommend a beautiful venue. We literally exchanged hundreds of e-mails as well as phone calls and Skype, and no problem or query was too small and she went above and beyond to help bring our perfect day together.
We went out on a trip to Cyprus prior to the wedding, where she spent time showing us around the venue and suppliers. When our wedding finally came around, she made everything a breeze – all the legal bits, town hall etc. were handled professionally and swiftly, and on the day itself she was on hand to make sure everything went perfectly to plan (and even the tiny things that didn’t go to plan we didn’t need to worry about, as Stella was on it!). Stella took brilliant photos of our day and had them ready on discs for us and our parents, which was a lovely touch and allowed us to look back on everything before the official ones arrived.
In addition, Stella’s contacts are amazing and all the suppliers and professionals she put us in touch with were brilliant and truly helped us have the wedding we had dreamed of. In particular we have to mention:
Maria and her team who did amazing hair and make-up – I had been slightly worried as I didn’t have a trial but I showed her photos and the end result was a million times better than the pictures!
Andrew our priest and Helen at the Anglican Church of Paphos took the time to get to know us beforehand and looked after us and our guests during the ceremony and Andrew did a lovely, very personal service which meant a lot to both of us and our families.
Blue Jar, our musicians, did a fantastic job of playing during our ceremony and they also performed our first dance, which was so good that one of our guests thought it was a pre-recorded version until they realised it was Lesley singing. Spine tingling!
Paris of Enchanted Flowers did the most beautiful bouquets and decorations, which everyone commented on, and which made the venue look absolutely amazing. Which also matched my dress and style of our wedding perfectly. It was such a privilege to be able to work with her.
Jo and Jackie at Love Island Cakes, who made us the most gorgeous and delicious wedding cake and biscuit place names, as well as cupcakes for the bridal party to have whilst getting ready.
Thanks you as well to Sherie and Jasmine, who helped us with all our additional decorations.
I cannot recommend Stella Virdi highly enough for anyone planning a wedding in Cyprus and would like to thank her again for all her help and hard work.
