I chose Stella Virdi (Exclusive Weddings Cyprus) to be our wedding planner after doing some research online, and reading the fantastic reviews from previous couples. I sent a tentative e mail initially as it was a very small wedding party (just the two of us actually!), and I wasn’t sure whether Stella would take on such a small job. Her response was amazing – she reassured us that she would be delighted to work with us, and said that although she does work on very large and very expensive and elaborate weddings, she loves the small, intimate affairs just as much.
We explained the sort of thing that we were after and Stella came back with several ideas for the venue. We chose Peyia, an old walled courtyard in the hills behind Paphos, and it proved to be an absolutely beautiful setting. Over the weeks and months before the wedding day Stella was in touch regularly. We sent her photos of us and a brief history as she was keen to get a feel for who we are, and this type of personal attention carried on throughout.
Stella advised us on the legalities and the documentation required to get married in Cyprus and she made things really easy for us. She also arranged a fabulous bouquet of yellow roses for me and a matching button hole for the groom, and arranged hair and make up appointments for me both I terms of a prior trial and the appointment on the day . I was delighted with both.
After we arrived in Cyprus, Stella collected us from the hotel and took us in her car to the courtrooms sign affidavits and then to the town hall to apply for the wedding license. She has the bubbliest and most friendly personality and we loved her immediately. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt she was totally focused on our wedding day even though she had other weddings immediately previously and afterwards. She helped us plan out the day in terms of getting to the venue (I was concerned that my fiancé didn’t see me at the hotel, so he went first in a taxi and Stella came and collected me so that I met him there). She helped us with music for the ceremony and even brought fresh rose petals to throw as confetti. She also helped us decide where to go afterwards for champagne and where to eat later.
We are both 60 years old and this was not our first marriages. We wanted secrecy (no one at home knew we were getting married until after we had flown to Cyprus) and intimacy, and Stella delivered in spades. We had the most fantastic and romantic wedding day, and it was just perfect in every way, orchestrated and arranged by Stella. We will be keeping in touch with her, and will be sure to meet her for dinner when we return to Cyprus next year.
If you are planning a wedding in Cyprus please contact Stella Virdi – you simply could not make a better choice.

We got married in May this year at the coral beach hotel and Stella Virdi was our wedding planner and what an amazing lady she is, she literally takes control of everything she knows exactly what’s she’s doing you don’t have to worry about anything and makes you feel so at ease on your big day shes amazing at her job.
I couldn’t recommend her enough to other brides looking for a wedding planner or the Coral beach it’s a beautiful hotel. We had Aimee flack as our singer shes amazing and was such a nice touch. We used Andy for our photos and Brenda & Martin for our video they are all both brilliant!!
For our Cake Love island cakes it was exactly what I asked for, We also had a photo booth with klik photo,
I would recommend them all was the best day and wouldn’t of changed a thing xxx

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
“Stella, a sincere thank you for everything you have done for us over the last year. Nothing was too big or to small of an ask and you made it all happen. Our wedding day was a dream come true for and it came down to your hard work, tenacity, organisation and passion for what you do. You have shown me compassion, love and understanding through the whole process. I feel fortunate to have met you and consider you a forever friend.
Our wedding was truly magical”

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!
