Living In the Middle East and Looking to Get Married in Cyprus

‘We had the most amazing experience with Stella organizing our elopement”

 

In the past few years, a large proportion of my clientele has consisted of international couples living and working in countries like Dubai, Qatar and many more in the Middle East. As you may know, when getting married sourcing the correct documentation needed to get married can be a bit of a headache, especially for foreigners living in UAE countries. However Cyprus, it is easy to arrange civil weddings that are legal  as well as making sure that your wedding certificates are authenticated so they are recognised in your country of residence.

 

I have arranged hundreds of weddings for clients from countries all over the world, but that are based in the UAE. Normally, when couples contact me they often feel rather stressed about the bureaucratic formalities of arranging a civil wedding. My job as a wedding planner is to make the procedure as stress-free as possible so that couples can relax as enjoy their day without having to worry about all the little details.

 

In addition, geographically speaking, Cyprus is aptly located between the Middle East and the entirety of Europe, being one of the major draws for international couples based in the UAE to get married there. For international couples that have family traveling from far and wide, the island serves as a place somewhere in between. Not to mention its Mediterranean climate, phenomenal sunsets and scenic vistas.

 

Depending on the couple and their needs and desires, I am able to arrange simple civil weddings where the couples want to elope or those for larger parties with a formal wedding reception dinner. Some of my clients prefer to have their wedding party once they get back home; they just need to get the formalities out of the way. It is sometimes necessary that they marry urgently and this is possible as long as they have the correct documentation ready to go.

 

Beyond the paperwork, I am involved in arranging any extras that you might want on your special day, such as bridal hair and makeup, a bridal bouquet, flowers, a wedding cake, a photographer, reception dinners, DJ, and much more.

 

So if you’re wanting to get married in Cyprus, but don’t know where to start I will walk you through the process, step by step, so you can anticipate your special day with ease!

For me a life-changing experience. We are now living here and I am enjoying helping other couples who want to make their day special. Whether it is a wedding celebration, LGBT marriage celebration, or a vow renewal.. I would love to help make your day a day to remember using words which you are comfortable with, and words which mean something to you.. You can include music, readings, symbolic ceremonies such as hand fasting or sand blessing..

The ceremony can be held wherever you like. The only limit is your imagination! Happy Anniversary Ted.. and thank you for a life of music, love and laughter x x

Bridal Bouquets Cyprus

Your Cyprus  wedding flowers are an integral part of your theme; and set the tone of decor to follow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have had some beautiful bridal bouquets. As a planner its my job to deliver the bridal bouquet to my bride during bridal preparation. I normally walk into a room filled with activity and fun (and champagne), bridesmaids, mother of the bride,  hair-dressers, make-up artist and photographer snapping away.  Handing the flowers over to my bride usually brings tears and happiness..   So it begins….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a few that I especially loved.  Our Cyprus Wedding florist is so talented and can make pretty much any bouquet a bride desires.

It is important to place your order a few weeks before your wedding as some of the more unique and exotic flowers are flown in from Holland and Ecuador; which  need to be ordered well in advance.

 

 

 

 

Lyvia & Oren’s Special Day

From the beginning when we were just trying to understand what getting married in Cyprus means, Stella was very attentive and helpful, responding to all our questions and concerns. Throughout the preparation of documents and finalizing trip details (coming from Israel), she guided us expertly in requirements and process, even with last minute complications.

Upon arrival in Cyprus, she had seen to all the arrangements with the Town Hall, booked us a great photographer in Petros Stylianakis (http://www.petrosstylianakis.com), and made perfect impromptu flower plans with her connections the evening before the wedding.
A special thanks for the personal chauffeuring the day of the wedding!

Aside from her professional excellence, she was very kind and sympathetic, and we shared some nice bonding moments with her in the first face-to-face meeting the day before the wedding, and over coffee while we waited for the Town Hall to process documents.

 

Sincerely from the very happy couple,

Oren and Lyvia

Our Wonderful Cyprus Wedding: Exactly What We Dreamed Of

We are finally back home and I have time to share my experience about our wonderful wedding in Cap St George. I was really worried when we chose it as there were very less reviews about the hotel and we were not able to come in advance to see it. However, it was the best choice we could make. Our wedding was so perfect, that if I would have an opportunity to go back in time and try to make something different, I wouldn’t do it as there were no single disappointment.

I’m really happy that our wedding planner was Stella Virdi, she was so amazing and helpful. I didn’t have any bridezilla moment as everything was taken care and I could just relax and enjoy the day. She made our day and planning much easier and helped us a lot with all the crazy paperwork problems. I also was amazed how beautiful she made our decor. I just sent her a couple of pictures with ideas and trusted her, and everything was just as I dreamt. I really can’t imagine to plan everything myself without her.

Now back to the venue. Cap St George is modern and wonderful hotel with amazing view. Excellent service, delicious food and very accomodating team to your requests. Thanks to Samantha who is taking care of the events in the hotel. One of the best things in my opinion, you will have a really private wedding without any curios people around in their Speedo and bikinies. You will feel that your day is special and it’s special not just for you but for the team of Cap St George too.

We had our wedding on 20 June, so we don’t have the whole photoshoot and videos yet. But thanks to Andrzej Sosinski for sharing a couple of pictures with us and just wow. Can’t recommend him enough, was such a pleasure to work on the photoshoot with him.

There are more people to whom we are really grateful for making our day perfect, like Kirsty with her amazing singing or Black George, but I will share more details, pictures and videos once we get them, so hopefully they will help some future brides to see all the beauty of this venue. And please, feel free to contact me if you have any doubts and need information!
