A wonderful day

Throughout the entire process, Stella was extremely knowledgable and approachable, from the initial booking through to the ceremony itself. We had a very low-key ‘elopement’ style wedding which was made amazing due to Stella Virdi work behind the scenes. The photographer was great and the venue perfect. In short, if you are looking to get married in Cyprus, look no further than Stella. She really does know her stuff and you will feel lucky to have found her.

Sasha and Richard’s dream wedding

Огромное спасибо дорогой Стелле за организацию нашей свадьбы!!! Это была просто идеальная свадьба мечты! За такой короткий срок (буквально за неделю) она нам все организовала вплоть до букета, фотографа, макияжа, ресторана и даже маленьких свадебных капкейков, о которых я вспомнила только в день свадьбы!!! Свадьба у нас была только вдвоём с мужем, и поэтому Стелла ещё и провела со мной пол-утра, чтобы мне было не скучно и не так нервно ждать! В общем СПАСИБО ОГРОМНОЕ за помощь со свадьбой и со всеми всеми документами, что нам даже ни о чем думать не пришлось!!! Это было просто великолепно!!!

We had dreamed of having our wedding together on a Mediterranean island but it seemed like it would be too complex for us to arrange, coming from the UK and Russia.

Then we found Stella and everything became so much easier and stress free.

Stella was able to make all of the arrangements for us to marry in Pafos town hall and make an amazingly beautiful and memorable day for us.

Stella was wonderful in the lead up to the ceremony keeping us sane and was great company during our stay in Cyprus. Not only helping us with the wedding, venue, photographer, hair, makeup, restaurants and flowers, but also great recommendations on where to stay and places to visit.

We would absolutely recommend any couple to trust and rely on Stella to organise their special day.

Very Small But Perfectly Formed Secret Wedding in Peyia

After fifteen years together we wanted to finally get married but without all the stress of a traditional wedding. Just the two of us in the beautiful gardens of Peyia Town Hall. Stella made not only made this possible but also just so enjoyable. How many brides are so relaxed on the morning of their wedding that they can sit and watch the waves with a mimosa for half an hour before the ceremony?

The day went off without a hitch and everybody that Stella booked was fantastic. Without time for any hair and makeup trial, things could have been a bit scary, but the beauty team did a wonderful job and I got the impression that they could have done it with their eyes shut. The bouquet was just stunning and exceeded my expectations and Andy’s photos are a great record of our day that we can share with our family (though Stella also took some lovely snaps on her phone so we could share something when breaking the news to people that evening.)

We had so much fun that we want to do it again! We have our wedding party later this year, where we will celebrate with friends and family and share the pictures and memories of our relaxed Cyprus wedding. Thank you, Stella and the rest of the team!

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.
