Dream elopement wedding in Cyprus

We (Natalia, originally from Ukraine, and Brendan from Scotland) decided on an elopement wedding and wanted to combine it with a short holiday. Cyprus seemed perfect and after reading some positive comments online about wedding planner Stella Virdi, we decided to speak to Stella about planning a small church wedding in Paphos in October 2018. Stella was very helpful and encouraging from the outset and organised everything from flowers and hair and make up to the legal documentation/stamps required and the booking of the church (the small yet beautiful St Nicolas Chapel) for the service with the priest and vergers. Communication with Stella was very good throughout and in the days before the ceremony she took us by car to get the relevant documents signed and stamped, helping to take any stress out of what can be a stressful experience at times for some couples. Stella was happy to be a witness at the ceremony and also recommended photographers for us – and we were very happy with the photos from chosen photographer Andy Sosinski. Stella also recommended and booked for us a restaurant for the evening of our wedding day, which was superb. I would not hesitate to recommend Stella to other couples thinking of having their wedding in Paphos.

Sun, Sea and Brides To Be

Brilliant news! We’ve had confirmation that Sun, Sea and Brides To Be will start transmitting Saturday 26th January on Channel 4 at 3.30pm and weekly after that (subject to any C4 schedule changes).  Its all about couples coming over to Cyprus and the wedding planners that plan their big days.    I am on SHOWS 6, 10, 12, 16 and 20.  In one way dreading watching myself, but exciting to be featured as a planner on this tv show.  It was lots of fun filming, who knows maybe there will be a series 2.
